    I want to see if anyone here knows of any additional prep materials that could help me really do well on the VR section. It is my weakest section out of all the sections and I'm already taking the Kaplan prep course. Any good other books or sites I could use? Thanks!

    all I did was practice, practice, practice.

    take several practice tests, learn why you got questions wrong. IMO you just need to learn their "tricks," and how to think the way they want you to think.

    What worked for me was using the Exam Krackers method (try to only read passage 1x, go back if you need to, and don't "map" the passage like Kaplan says)
    And use the Kaplan practice tests - they're harder than AAMC, and will help you with timing.
