    Any thoughts, concerns, reflections, opinions? What did you think of the difficulty level? Physical sciences part seemed relatively easy. I thought verbal was a bit long...each and every passage seemed to go on and on...I barely finished with 1min: 35seconds left and usually Verbal is my best section, finishing 15 minutes early. I have heard the Bio section was pretty difficult, but I didn't think it was too bad? Overall, what do you guys think?

    Definitely easier than AAMC 4 i thought. How's it in comparison to 6-10?

    To me 5 seems right on par with 6. 7-10 IMO have a slightly different feel to them. Having taken the real thing, 7-10 seem like an accurate representation to the real thing. As for the long--er verbal passages. Get used to them. :luck:

    i just reviewed my test and i feel soooooooooo dumb for making some of the ridiculous stupid mistakes I made. I know the science...its just trying to figure out exactly what it is they are asking, and then putting 2 + 2 together to get the simple answer.:scared:

    I wish there was a class which teaches high speed critical thinking. :rolleyes:

    I think by just doing those tests, you get a feel of what kind of options to eliminate based on their language.:)

    I just took it and was completely raped by the Physics Section. I scored a 10 on AAMC 4, but a 7 on AAMC. Granted, I did take AAMC 4 like two months ago. The verbal and the bio were okay... I got 11s on both.

    Its just frustrating, because the last test I took, I could have sworn that I needed to beef up on the Organic (my bio score was the lowest), however, this last test is telling me that my problems lie in Physics which is where I thought I was comparatively strong.

    I just need June 15th to get here and be over and done with.

    I took 4 and made a 28(7/10/11)
    I took 5 the other day and made a 27(8/9/10)

    Meh, I'm getting there.
