    My highest Kaplan FL was a 503, (125, 124, 127, 127), and I hovered right around there for the past couple

    Last week I took AAMC FL 1, and ended up with a 500... (127,121,128,124)

    I have never scored lower than a 123 CARS on a Kaplan FL, and the AAMC CARS just seemed so different... I test in late March, and would like a 510... Also I have gotten 126-127 on all P/s sections of Kaplan FL.

    Can anyone give me advice??? a 121 CARS is absolutely demoralizing, but my other sections have given me confidence. Think I need to reschedule or just cram CARS Q packs?

    Reschedule. You need a solid 6 months of studying and a lot of CARS practice to be ready for what you want. The real deal is harder than AAMC #1. 124 on P/S also tells me you are lacking on studying P/S concepts (fortunately, this is the easiest section to raise).

    definitely reschedule. You have the potential to score well, focus on P/S concepts watch Khan academy videos for P/S its pretty good. and do at least 3 CARS practice sections every day from here on. The ExamKrackers 101 CARS passages is pretty good, and more similar to the AAMC content. Of course the AAMC CARS QPack is the most representative.

    P/S is not too hard to improve in. CARS takes a while so I would postpone as well. I made the mistake of not postponing and bombed the CARS section so take some advice from someone who has been there.

    Hey guys, not sure if you can all see this but I'm thinking of using Jack Westin's 6 week course beginning Feb 19 and rescheduling for June 2. Does this sound like a good plan? Anyone have experience with him? :)

    Super expensive- I think you can check out a free trial class. Do 3 CARS passages a day (timed) and review answers immediately afterwards. Work through 500+ passages this way.
