Real MCAT AAMC Verbal versus all other practice

    Over the past few months I have berated the lack of real mcat-like verbal passages available from prep companies including EK, yet there is little that has come of these posts. Now, there seems to be some evidence that the verbal section is a real slap in the face regardless of previous aamc practise tests scores (see the discussion here http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=840973)

    So how is it possible to accurately prepare for this section? I have done the EK101, BR CBTs PR Verbal workbook, PR verbal online hyper learning passages, yet it still does not seem to be enough to have a confident VR score.

    That thread you refer to is overly alarmist and unreliable. An analysis of all the scores posted on sdn for the 6/16 test showed that the average/median VR score was similar to the average/median VR score from 5/26 (~10VR).
