Bio 18 OC 22 GC 21 RC 22 QR 21 PAT 28 (100th %) TS 20 AA 21 Thanks for all the tips to those who posted and replied. Here's my take on the test... Bio: must've had an off day, missed a few too many. I studied the most for this by 10x (how stupid). Turns out nothing, not even destroyer or even Shaums's (although the best source) really prepares you for the random wording of questions and the weird similarities in answer choices of some of the questions. Half the questions were as easy as they come, but half were just plain bizarre. I conclude the following about biology: other than luck or absolute peak performance, being a bio major or taking a lot of bio classes (six or seven) would benefit the test taker the most. (I was a film major back in college. No matter how many thousands of films you guys have seen, I just have a greater understanding of the language of film than those who didn't major in it from having studied it from so many angles so many times). Don't slack on ecology, comparative anatomy, or other boring topics: I got killed on these questions. O-chem/g-chem: very fair. Destroyer was very good for these sections. I feel I would've done slightly better in OC if I had anticipated the difficulty of some of the spectroscopy questions (Kaplan is not in depth enough for this). Both sections also had random lab questions that threw me off. My advice is to make sure you know lab techniques, materials, and spectroscopy well for both sections. Otherwise, fairly easy. Reading comp: Don't know what to say. I went straight to the questions and skimmed the passage for answers. I thought I was getting every single one right, but oh well. Of note, I believe neither topscore nor achiever did a good job preparing you for this section. My advice would be to practice using MCAT materials even though the format is different. PAT: Aced this section. I always had a knack for this kind of stuff. I had good techniques for every section, and it payed off. Way easier than achiever, by the way. Kaplan and Topscore are insufficient. Crack the PAT is very good although the hole punching is too difficult. QR: Surprised myself. The best thing I believe you can do for yourself here with such little time is to completely skip all word problems first time through. Do not second guess your math calculations. Overall impression is that it wasn't as bad as everyone said. Topscore was just too easy overall. Achiever was more like the real thing, if a little difficult. No biology source was sufficient to prepare you, but those who have taken more than the basic courses should be good. During the test, I thought I was doing exceptionally well and felt relaxed. Boy was I surprised by my average bio score. Overall, be very vigilant for careless errors and do not dwell for not even 10 seconds on questions you're not very sure about. Most importantly for those studying: concentrate on improving all other sections besides biology! It's a much more realistic way of increasing your overall score. My too cents. I feel okay about my application, but am a little worried about a few C's in geology I got back in the 90's in college. I hope they weigh BPC average more; for that I have a 3.6. I also am curious about exactly how many dental EC's you need to be competitive. I have 75 hours of shadowing and 85 hours of volunteering at UCLA dental clinic. But working and being out of college limits the exposure and free time. Any thoughts?
