MCAT Verbal Preparation

The first step in scoring a 10 or better on the Verbal Section of the MCAT is knowing what the test measures and what skills it requires you to master in order to succeed.

The MCAT Verbal Section measures your ability to:

  • Be able to select the key ideas in a text;
  • Understand them clearly;
  • See how the key ideas are related in forming the argument in an essay
  • Know what the text implies or what you can infer from it; and
  • Know precisely what a question is asking for and how each answer selection does or does not answer the question.

MCAT Verbal Preparation

In order to determine which are the key ideas in a text, you must know some of the fundamentals of rhetoric: how essays are structured so that you can pick out the key sentences. Once you pick out these sentences, you have to know the fundamentals of grammar to determine what is most important in that sentence as opposed to what is just additional information or an example illustrating a point already made. You then need to be able to us reflective intelligence to reflect on and determine not only what a text says, but also what it suggests, what it implies, and what you can infer, the unstated meaning of a text.

The Cambridge Learning Center offers weekly information sessions on the MCAT Verbal Test where students can ask questions, learn the best ways to prepare for the exam on their own, receive free study materials, and find out about the courses offered by the Center.
