Background: I started studying for the MCAT on the 10th of June and have my test date on the 10th of September.

These are the FLs I have taken (bottom is most recent)


1. TBR FL 2 (58%) ~502
2. TBR FL 1 (60%) ~502
3. TBR FL 3 (61%) ~502
4. EK FL 1 (50%)
5. EK FL 2 (54%)
6. EK FL 4 (57%)


I still have to take:

7. AAMC Ungraded
8. AAMC Scored
9. TBR FL 4


So I would like to know if my "improvement" in percentage is significant or not. I am kinda worried about my scores, mostly because I make a lot of stupid mistakes, but also because I find EK to be very tricky.

I heard a 60%+ on EK is good, but as you can see...I have not been able to reach that milestone.

One issue I have (which keeps my score from going up) is that on one test, I do good on C/P and Psych/Soc and mediocre on CARS and B/B, but on another test....I do good on CARS and B/B but mediocre on C/P and Psych/Soc!!!

Thank you JB40. I think that's a good idea. I am definitely getting the section banks. What do you think of the question packs for the Sciences? I already have the one for CARS.

I would use the AAMC Section bank which has the three sections. I used vol 1 and vol 2 CARS passages for verbal review. The older studying materials are more specific and aren't as good of representatives as the most recent AAMC materials.
