Would you say the verbal has changed over time?

    I'm out of verbal materials and was thinking about redoing some old aamc's but was wondering if you think they've changed over time? You can tell that the science has changed over time because the types of questions change, but has verbal been pretty consistent?

    I found verbal to be pretty consistent throughout the AAMC FLs. I thought verbal on my test was harder, but that probably due to test day nerves.

    Passages on my real MCAT were much easier to comprehend + read. However, their questions were much harder..

    So it would be okay to redo the passages? I did TPRH verbal today and the passages are like the mcat but not the questions.

    I don't know if redoing verbal will be helpful. You might remember some things from the first time you read it.

    Other sources for verbal are EK Verbal, TPRH Verbal, and Verbal SAs. Those are really the only good sources, in order of increasing usefulness, IMO.
