    Hey guys!

    First of all, I want to thank all of you who answered my endless questions, concerns, and gave me feedback about the exam. With that said, here are my scores:


    QR: 370
    RC: 350
    Bio: 350
    GC: 380
    OC: 400
    Phy: 390

    TS: 390
    AA: 370

    Advise to those of you who are still studying...just concentrate on the very basics. For the Bio section, don't neglect ecology/plant/fungi/protists. Though you'll do ok just knowing the basics about these, some questions do concentrate on details (those that I got wrong lol). Also, if you're scoring in the low thirties/upper 200s on the OAT achiever, you'll do just fine on this test...i came VERY close to postponing my exam because my last achiever set didn't go so well, but decided to take it and did just fine. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me...and good luck to anyone who's exam date is coming up!

    I actually didn't puchase any materials to study for the OAT. I checked out a DAT book (by Kaplan) from the library and studied the bio, chem, ochem, and QR from that. For the physics, I borrowed a friend's Kaplan MCAT physics book.
    You really don't need to know much more than the basic concepts of physics...but you have to know them well and learn to apply them to new problems. If you read some of my old posts, you'll see that I was considering rescheduling my test due to my low physics score on my last achiever set (270) , but some friends on SDN (Absolute VIsion :) ) assured me I'd do fine on the real thing and I did. Point being, don't rely only on your achiever scores as far as the sciences are concerned...the material on achiever is MUCH more difficult.
