    So I'm a non-traditional student, married, house, dogs, etc.

    I took summer classes, genetics, cell bio lab, field botany.

    I studied when I finished my class homework.

    While I had hoped to get a score that I could get my foot in somewhere, I did not expect what I got.

    21 AA
    22 PAT
    24 RC
    18 QR
    18 GC
    21 OC
    20 TS
    22 BIO

    While the 18's are not great, I'm pleased with the score!

    Thanks guys!

    The test... OC wasn't hard at all. GC was tricky. Bio was wicked broad and the sections that would have been expected on there, weren't. QR wasn't bad either.

    Overall I studied when I could and maintained testing conditions by timing myself on everything all the time.

    amazing job man! your wife must be all over you by now! ;)

    What did you use for GC and OC? I think those two sections are most easily preped for so its like the AA booster section.. Im sure you would of had a higher grade if you didnt have to take those summer classes.

    I watched Chad's, took notes while watching, then memorized it all. About 4 or 5 days before the test, I went through OC in DAT destroyer, but not all of it. I looked at the road maps and realized that by memorizing the notes from the videos, I had memorized the maps.

    It wasn't that bad, but I had prepared for the most part.

    And yeah, I sincerely did not think I was prepared for the test since I had to juggle the other classes.

    Oh well, done and done!
