    Before posting. I have searched and read through several forums for suggestions on books to improve my scores for reading comp and verbal ability. The books that were suggested that would improve your scores the most were Exam Crackers and Kaplans Gre. Are these appropriate books for PCAT takers? Are there any other helpful books? Thanks.:D

    I thought Kaplan was the best for these sections. I struggled on the Kaplan's reading comp. but breezed right through it on the june 21st pcat. I was actually going to take a restroom break because I was done so early. Even before the 5 minute break period. I raised my hand for the needed permission to leave but the proctor's never paid attention so after having my hand up for 3-4 minutes i just gave up :p

    Get an MCAT verbal reasoning book for the reading comprehension stuff.

    For vocabulary I am using Barron's "Essential Words for the GRE" (also by Geere.. as someone else mentioned above). I think it is really good!
