This is a part where you will need a lot of practice. There are a lot of tips that you will have to keep in your mind before going to attempt the MCAT test. Sometimes, while making a test the test maker leaves a sequence in the answers of his or hers question. This pattern if found can be very helpful in determining the right answer to the questions. Another advice that a lot of people give for taking this test is to leave the difficult questions for the end. In my point of view, this is not a good option. Since, the time available in this MCAT test is very limited there is not enough time left at the end to solve any unsolved questions. Just make sure to give an answer for every question you read. Only in that way will you be able to solve most of your paper.
