    ehh, i thought it was kind of annoying. a couple tricky PS questions (especially physics questions!! i usually get all physics correct), and BS had an ambiguous passage.

    Definately trickier than aamc4. The PS was not hard...but very tricky. I made a lot of dumb mistakes because of the way the questions were worded. The VR had a slightly harder curve...I had the same raw score as aamc4 but lower score. BS had so much chemistry...my weak point.

    PS 11
    VR 8
    BS 10

    I thought it was the one of the most straight forward tests that I took from the AAMC collection.

    it was the first one i took so i figured thats why it was so low (7ps/10bs/11vr.) i did much better on the second one i took (#4, i got 10ps/12bs/12vr) but when I searched everyone said that was an easy one. so who the hell knows how i'm really doing :) i better take them all!

    +1 I actually scored 5 points higher on this test. It is all so subjective with the AAMC's. Some people score high where you will score low. You should be more concerned with your overall trends.

    Let me give you guys a piece of advice that I wasted hours on SDN wasting.

    The tests only depend on your own weaknesses. I thought 5 was one of the easiest, along with 10. I thought 3 & 4 were the hardest, and I got my lowest scores on them. Classifying a test as "hard" or "easy" is only, really, only dependent on it hitting your weak or strong points, respectively.

    I spent way too much time on SDN trying to justify a poorer score on an AAMC because the test was "overwhelmingly hard" when it really just showed what I was weak in. Inevitably, some will share your idea and think it was tough; some will think you are crazy. All you can do is learn from it.
