    I was wondering, I guess its a bit too early for me to start preparing for the MCATs and I should focus more on my pre-med requirements but does anyone have any tips on how I should go about preparing for the MCAT Verbal? Like what kind of books, magazine, newspapers I should read. What type of genere should I read? Should I buy a MCAT verbal review book? Any recommendations for Rookies?

    I took the Kaplan MCAT course and they recommended reading The New York Times, The New Yorker and any other "advanced" reading material that has a variety of topics.

    On the MCAT, passages can be on humanities, social science and natural science, so you want to be comfortable with all of them. Basically, just read a lot! After you read an article stop and ask your self "what was the author saying" and "what was the point of the article". This is the only way you can practice verbal. Good luck! :D
