    I'm looking for some advice (aren't we all?)

    So I've been studying since the end of May and and I just don't feel like I've been improving at all. The highest FL score I've gotten was 30 on Kaplan FL2, which was a month ago! I then went down to 27on FL3, and then up to a 29 on FL4. I just took AAMC 7 today and got a 29. :( I cannot believe that in a month of studying I haven't improved a bit! I even thought that AAMC 7 was easy, too-but my PS score is still hovering around an 8 despite, percentage-wise, improving a lot from the Kaplan FLs.

    Is there ANYTHING I can do in the next week to pull up my PS to a 10? I'm really quite desperate. I've been re-reading the EK books and doing the 30-minute exams in those....I'm having trouble finding the time to do much else other than that because I'm working. I do plan on doing AAMC 8 and 9 next week.

    Thanks....by now I was hoping that I would be hitting the 35 mark, but apparently not.....

    FL1 30
    FL2 33
    FL3 30
    FL4 29

    it seems that the harder i try to study the worse i do. probably because i'm burnt out.

    yeah you gotta hate the wall. I scored a 33 a month ago and have not scored about that. I haved scored the same and a few points less but stuck. My scores went down as I studied more so I cut it back by and hour or two and I feel a lot better and not so tired when I take the practice tests.

    maybe go a little bit slower on the sections? I make ******ed mistakes like mark the exactly opposite answer
    I took Kaplan FL 8 and got a 28
    then I went a little slower in the sections, didnt exactly finish (3/4 questions)
    but got a 32 on Kaplan FL 9
