Hi everyone,

My test is in a week. I am trying to focus on improving these sections the most before test day.

For B/B I scored 128 on both AAMC FL 1 and 2 ( will be taking 3 and 4 this weekend and next week). I also finished both biology qpacks and got >80% on both. I really want to score a 130 on this section. Should I just focus on the section bank? Any other advice on how to improve this section?

The C/P section has always been my lowest. I got a 124 and 125 on AAMC FL 1 and 2 respectively. For the past two weeks I have been going through the physics book because I think part of it is lack of physics content and few gen chem concepts. But I also see that I am struggling with doing math problems. Like a chemistry or physics problem will come up that I know how to set up and do, but then I mess up on the math. Does anyone know any good resources to help with that?

My average P/S score is 129 and my average CARS score is 127 between the two AAMC practice exams and the NS practice exams I have taken. I really need to get that C/P score up but would also like to increase B/B at least a point or two before my exam. Thank you!

C/P: practice. Know scientific notation like the back of your hand. Saves my life on every calculation problem.
B/B: a lot of reasoning and passage dissection. Section banks are king. Focus on those only. Qpack score just shows you have content for bio down. You need the reasoning/passage skills to break into the 130 range.

Focus on C/P tbh because getting from 125 to 128 is a lot easier than trying to go from 128 to 130+

When you go through your incorrect answers, it's a good idea to get a feel of why you're missing questions. Towards the end it ends up being strategy more than content errors. I liked to make sure I had a good grasp on the question stem so it could point me to where I needed to go in the passage and to not make any silly errors. I think it pays off quite a bit to annotate passages more thoroughly in the BB section since there are a lot of relationships that are offered in those passages.
