This is probably been posted in several areas on this forum, but I'm not finding a good thread. I'm preparing for the MCAT and I'm actually feeling decent about my overall preparedness, but I'm having trouble boosting my verbal reasoning/cars score. I'm ESL so I know they 'kind of' take that into consideration, but I think I'm not alone in wanting to still do well despite this. I've talked to other ESL students and it seems this is a common problem which makes sense I suppose. I've tried to just read lots of opinion articles from magazines like the new yorker, time, etc, which I'm hoping is helping, but who knows. There's an abundance of prep material out there and most of it really only offers common-sense approaches. I was really hoping for a program or advice on ways to really learn the patterns (if any?) associated with the VR section. I've used a bit of kaplan, examkracker, princeton for other sections, used the free version of RX4MCAT for just verbal, since I know it's geared towards ESL, but seemed a bit pricey. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!! And since I'm sure this is an old topic of discussion, a link to a related thread would be awesome.
