My verbal score is has tremendous fluctuation (7-11) and I've noticed that my poor scores is due to rushing to stay on pace which invariably hinders my comprehension.

I know the requisite responds to these threads are 'with a lot of practice" and practice has helped me tremendously (ie anticipating the types of question that can and will be asked). I guess im wondering if anyone has their own technique that has helped them maintain the balance between speed and comprehension on this dubious section.

thanks in advance.

Practice with longer passages than the MCAT VR passages. I like The New Yorker. Usually a similar level of writing, but the articles are usually 5000-6000 words so you're forced to stay focused longer. Usually, IMHO, its not comprehension that fails its concentration / focus.

Make a ha bit of not re-reading anything you've already read. It should force you to stay focused and not waste time.
