Looking for an MCAT Verbal Reasoning book? Studying for the MCAT is a monumental task, and Nova Press has the books for you. Our MCAT Trilogy covers every aspect of the MCAT, Verbal Reasoning included. Incorporated in the Biology book, the Verbal Reasoning section focuses on reading comprehension and critical reasoning.
In the reading comprehension section, we outline exactly what to expect on the test. This includes the timing, number of passages and questions, and about how long each one is. We outline specific reading methods that are most effective for this test and debunk the myths about other methods. Then it’s time to get into the details. The Nova Press MCAT Biology Book specifies the six main types of questions asked on the test and how to approach each type. This simple step can increase your score by narrowing down your answer choices to just those that answer that type of question. Further, sample reading passages, questions, and explanations of the answers are included with each type of questions, so you can practice the application of this technique. Then, you’re on your own! Practice reading passages with questions are provided for you, but the answers are given later, so you have time to decide what you think before checking your answer.
The reading comprehension section also reviews pivotal words, so you are sure to understand the point for all of the reading passages. Often what a passage means can hinge on the use of one word, and Nova Press wants to be sure you are clear on those words. Finally, we outline a three step method that you can use on test day to be effective on test day.
The critical reasoning section first focuses on making sure you know how to analyze an argument so that you can determine the intended conclusion. Understanding the conclusion is key in helping you to answer the questions following the argument correctly. Making sure you understand what premises can be assumed and which can’t is also key to doing well on this section. We detail the eight common fallacies to look for when reading an argument.
