The Verbal section is just reading comprehension from passages right? Is there anything else? Whats the best way of preparing besides just doing a billion passages?
thanks.

Verbal is reading comprehension...but not just your average reading comprehension-->MCAT reading comprehension.

Other than doing passages, read articles/essays that you find boring.

the best way to prepare is to hook up w/ some artsy chick who is really into literature, or make buddy w/ some guy in ur literature class who is just kinda weird but smart

and get into their brain. think like them for that 85 min...forget scientific analysis and all that. THINK LIKE THEM!

phezad, you'll never fully understand this until you start prepping for the MCAT, but its the truth. You kind of have to switch your line of thinking for MCAT verbal. With most of us being scientifically inclined, we're used to reasoning to clear cut and quantitatively/empirically based answers, you know, things that actually make sense. The verbal comes down to "pick the answer that sucks the least" on many questions.
