    How are you scoring on the EK exams? To those shooting for 515+ what do you consider a 'good' percentage? I looked at the compilation of real scores vs. practice tests but not too many people have reported EK scores

    I believe 70% overall is seen as a good score for EK.

    What StudyLater said above. And in terms of percentiles, I've been using the following chart to guesstimate my scores. I forgot where I found it, but it's good.

    Also, side note: I like to assume worst case scenario so I use the verbal scale for psych/soc

    Is it just me or are the EK FL harder than the AAMC FL? I took the EK FL 1 today and I found myself not knowing some of the Terms in the Psychological Section, even though I used The Princeton Review book for that section.

    i didn't feel like it was harder. I studied from khan academy and pretty much everything was familiar with ease. the only questions i got wrong were based on the reading material that I missed or misunderstood in the passage. Hence, improving critical thinking is the key for this exam when you have all the material covered and even if you don't, you can still get the correct answer by the process of elimination.

    Seriously. I feel like a lot of the studying I did was sort of superfluous. I mean I memorized the most minute bull****. I do think those things are tested, but they make up maybe like 15-20% of the questions. It's so much more paying close attention to the passage and really analyzing the questions well.

    That said, if you haven't studied a stitch wthout having some decent UG experience in this stuff you're screwed.
