    Tests like SAT have "SAT vocabulary" in Amazon.com, etc. for students to score higher in the "verbal reasoning" section. Is there any for MCAT (i.e. a vocab list to boost scores by understanding what the passage means)?

    No. The MCAT isn't like the SAT. MCAT verbal is understanding the passage and answering questions based on the passage.

    You don't need to artificially build vocabulary using flashcards at this point. Just make a habit of reading good articles (Economist, Atlantic, NYBooks, art reviews, other humanities, etc.) and books and you'll be fine.
