    I just finished studying all the content from EK books on saturday. I did 30 min exams along the way and did pretty well on them (13-14 on most of them) but today I took 5R and I was a bit disappointed. I got a 30 (12-9-9).
    While taking the test I recognized quite a number of questions where I remembered seeing it but forgot exact details. I am hoping this can be fixed in the next 12 days... but how much of an improvement can I hope for?

    Anyone start out here and see changes within short time?

    I am feeling awful and discouraged :(

    I plan to do other AAMC tests and 3 EK exams... also in the meantime use Kaplan full length passages to practice in a non-timed setting.

    Do I have any hopes of doing better :(

    5R has been my best score so far... then again im not one of the overachievers going for a 39....
    You should not be so discouraged by a 30.. especially on your first full length-- just remember some people would kill for that score.

    Also the more full lengths you do the less fatigue etc will affect your score. Keep it up u can do it

    Question related to 5R, does anyone know why #156 of BS is D? Why would an autosomal recessive nonlethal mutation of the Ach receptor gene in rats affect the plasma membrane out of all other organelles (the other choices are microtubules, ribosomes, and ER)? Thanks!

    I would say 5R is one of the easy ones since its one of the older ones. They just keep increasing in difficulty.

    Where would an ACh receptor be located? In the PM no? So of the options given the only place that will be affected is the PM, where the receptors would have been......
