Good practice 10. Mai 2010
Von F. Munshi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a good book for practice. However I think this book can be misleading at times. For those studying for the MCAT, use this book to practice passages and more less of actually taking a test one by one. I would say use this book to practice a few passages a day. The questions are very challenging and will you get you thinking and focused for the real thing. I would say this can be easier than the real MCAT or AAMC verbal, but it is harder at times as well. So I guess we can say it balances out.

The passages for the most part are very interesting, compared to most verbal passages I have seen in the real MCAT and other prep companies. This book lacked humanity and philosophy passages, which is almost always present on the real MCAT. Although the questions are extremely difficult, some of the questions all over the book have more than one right answer, and will keep you guessing. So this book does have it's mistakes.

I would not actually score each practice verbal test based on the scale given in the back of the book. In my opinion I think some tests are harder than others in the book. Because of this I think that one and only scale in the back of the book should not be representative of each test in this book. If each test were graded accordingly, based on a pool of people getting certain questions right and wrong, then we would know each real score for each test. A lot of people I know, including myself, had verbal scores which fluctuated from this book.

As I mentioned before, use this book as practice. See which questions you got right and wrong, and why and how it lead you to the answer. Just use this book to polish your test-taking technique for the Verbal section, whatever technique it might be.

I give this book a 3.7 rating, which rounds up to 4. I do recommend this book, but with caution.

Too much focus on tricky answers 7. Juni 2014
Von Thomas Paterniti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have taken 6 practice MCATs under real timed conditions and I just took the full thing. My average on the practices are about a 12 or 13 in this section. If you miss 3 I think you get a 13. I haven't gotten my score back on the real MCAT yet. While it is true that the MCAT has ambiguous answers, I decided to start taking actual practice MCATs and found that I had to stop using this book. The answers in it were too "tricky" and I kept getting obvious/straightforward questions wrong on the actual practice MCATs because when I saw an answer that seemed too obvious, this book had trained me to think it was a trick answer. Although the MCAT does ask you questions about the main idea and other things that you must make inferences about, they also ask you many questions (I would say over 50%) where they expect you to look in the passage to either confirm a correct answer or eliminate other answers based on a pretty straightforward review of the text. The Exam Krackers method focuses way too much on teaching you that the MCAT is trying to trick you and making you second guess what seem like obvious answers.

Now having said that, I am very good at this section, in fact, it's my strongest section so maybe what seems like a straightforward answer to me doesn't to someone else. But the reality is I had to stop using this book because it was causing me to miss questions on the real MCATs. The book is good for practicing timing, although why not just buy the actual MCAT practices? They aren't that expensive and you know you are getting an accurate representation of what you will face.

As many others have noted, there are many very suspect answers to passages, which is probably again because many of the "wrong" answers were written to try and trick you into choosing them. I have encountered suspect answers on real MCAT practices also though, to be fair, and even some where it didn't seem that the question writer understood the point of certain paragraphs and arguments made.

This book let me really think what are the possible type of questions on the MCAT. I scored highest among all other scores on my Verbal Reasoning. This book really gives you lots of practice before the actual exam.

honest review after taking the exam. 13. August 2011
Von Ha Y. Cho - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I took the MCAT just yesterday. In retrospect, one thing I really would not recommend to other people preparing for MCAT is using this book. This is a completely objective opinion. I have done almost all of the book, solved almost all the problems. I found that while the difficulty level of the questions themselves could be definitely tricky and challenging. In that aspect, this book is acceptable. However, the problem with this book is that the types of the passages and especially the difficulty level of the passages are NOWHERE similar to the actual MCAT or the AAMC practice tests online. I can confidently say that the MCAT passages, as well as the AAMC pratice tests' passages were definitely more challenging. Frankly, I really have to say this book screwed me over the verbal, because it really made me to think that the passages were as easy as it seemed- but they really weren't. Sorry for everyone taking the MCAT, but the verbal section is HARD. Don't have false hopes that it will have a few give away passages. EVERY SINGLE PASSAGE is equally difficult, and definitely more difficult that I'd say 80% of all the passages in this book. Examkrackers are good with practicing concepts, but only ones really worth getting and that I would recommend is the biology book, and maybe the physics book. Organic chemistry is way too easy... WAY to easy, and general chem and physics are unecessarily way more difficult and have some obscure topics you won't have to bother for the MCATs.

If you are preparing for MCAT, I'd rather purchase ALL of the AAMC practice exams, which is available online for a year, and keep practicing those than to purchase all of examkracker books like me and waste nearly a month doing all the problems. AH, one more thing. There are typos here and there in examkracker books... it looked very unprofessional to me. Buy them and use them at your own risk.

Use as a supplement and not as a meal 31. Juli 2014
Von Wooperson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is best if you have run out of other materials to practice with. Therefore, I recommend that you finish all of the AAMC verbal reasoning materials before you try out this book. Additionally, it wouldn't hurt to do a 60 minute test between AAMC practice materials. The book may mislead you and make you think in more complex ways that can be detrimental on the actual MCAT questions. The reasons why:

Pros:
somewhat similar to actual verbal reasoning (as compared to most other test prep companies' books)
good practice with concentrated reading
similar passage and question structure

Cons:
the difficulty was greater than AAMC materials due to:
too much focus on small details and wording - sometimes you had to know the exact meaning of a strange word (this is VERY rare in the actual MCAT)
too little focus on general idea and clarifying questions
sometimes extremely convoluted and contrived logic - answer solution doesn't always help while the actual AAMC materials have very explicit explanation why a choice is incorrect
flawed logic - there are clearly illogical or contradicting explanations
