    I'm very bad at writing. Do anyone know if there're books that have tons of essay samples for MCAT writing prompts? I'm thinking if I read more good essays, I may be able to write better...

    thx:luck:

    i second that request. i have the kaplan stuff but they like to take the approach: here is an essay... what do YOU think is wrong with it? i do not need to learn how to edit someone else's essay, just give me examples of really really good ones. i dont have time to read bad essays.

    Btw, what materials do people use to prepare for verbal and writing (besides the e-mcat website) ? Are they good?

    Did you guys really practice the writing sample hardcore? I didn't. I just did it a few times so I could make my practice tests more real. I had two of them graded by Kaplan. It went alright.
