    i am using the SAT review book to prepare for the verbal and the reading section. it seems like the SAT is asking all inference and tone questions. cliff pcat review book has easier reading comprehension questions.

    does the actual pcat have lots of inference questions in the reading section?

    Bump. I would also like to know the answer to this question. Has anyone used SAT or GRE reading comprehension and writing essay practice materials to study for PCAT?

    If so, and you have taken the PCAT, what was your experience like?

    This is old but SAT reading comprehension is far to simple. I'm not sure how close the GRE is though. If you really need practice, I recommend using MCAT materials.

    On the real PCAT there are six 6-7 paragraph passages with 8 questions each. Most of my study materials were very simple in terms of reading comprehension. To accurately gauge yourself, use the Pearson practice exams because that's as close as you're going to get.

    SAT is too easy compared to PCAT.
