    hey kids, well in myu attempt to figure out what prac materials to get for this april espeicaly verbal, i stumbled across looking at an LSAT cause im thining of taking it and it is AWSOME verbal practice especially for the humnaities and social sciences passgages, since there are no science ones. I had downlaoded a free practice one and there are 4 sections, one of them is useless, it is logic games but 3 or them are critical reading. 2 of the 3 are not mcat style but give you a small paragraph and u have to analyze and think critically. the 3rd is EXACTLy mcat passage style. the first passage i read was teh SAME as oen i had seen on an mcat somwhere in my practies. .im sure many of you will recongnize it if you have practiced.. one about some guy and Jazz. v. modern jazz. anyway this section has 4 passages with each like 6 questions.. and it is great cause it is all social sciences. im including the link to the LSAC site and go to the link for LSAT and get the prac one to check for yorusef. Then u can order like 20 practice exams for 60 bux, which is great practice

    hi wally!

    I just wanted to tell you that when I was taking Kaplan, I thought that the LSAT materials would also really help me out. In fact, I was checking a few of them out. My verbal instructor told me that the LSAT test is testing skills other than what's tested onteh MCAT, so I really shouldn't waste my time on it. I don't know if that was good advice (I didn't do well on Verbal anyway) but just wanted to let you know that this was the general concensus among my profs.

    Why don't you do GRE stuff instead? Just an idea.

    Good luck!!
    PS: also try and get your hands on the PR verbal. I've been told that it helped a lot of people.

    I tried using GRE verbal passages for my MCAT study, but did not find them up to par with the difficulty of the MCAT material. Just my thoughts. I haven't tried out the LSAT yet stuff yet.

    i have been told that out of all verbal passages, lsat are the best to go with. however, they should just be used in the respect that they are not mcat passages, but they will provide you with great practice....anything helpsh
