    I was wondering if you guys who have taken the mcat already can tell me which verbal section (ie which test in either Kaplan or AAMC) seemed to be the best indicator of the difficulty, scaled scoring and style of the verbal section on the real mcat.

    Thanks!

    Seemed to me that the verbal section on mine was way harder than any of the other ones. Score wise they seemed on par, but my verbal on test day was HARD... Weird passages that didn't seem to have a place in a verbal section... Sorry I know that isn't helpful, but I think that all of the AAMC practice tests give a good indication.... Kaplan does not...

    Mine was similar to 7 or 8....

    During my practice I did 6 (best), 5,7,8 (average) 9 (bad)
    Mind you when I wrote nine I didn't think it went poorly... it just oddly got me....

    but most verbal i think is fairly representative....
    and if it is much harder it's not the end of the world as it should result in the same score due to scaling....

    Yeah my aamc 9 verbal went horrible as well, I dont know whats up with that and i heard other people on here talk about it too. My real mcat felt like aamc 8 but I havent gotten my score back so i couldnt really tell you for sure.
