    I am taking the April 7th exam, and today I took KFL#2, and all my scores have been in the low 30's (30-34), but I took this test today and it was the first time I felt everything "come together" and i got a 35 (Verb 10, Phys 12, Bio 13). I'm very ecstatic. I was wondering if other people have this experience when things finally start to "click." Did you see a big score jump? Did that translate into your actual score?

    that's awesome! congratulations

    not to be a huge downer, but take another one and make sure your score stabalized.

    regardless, i'm sure you will do fine.

    Not to kill your hopes, but I think that the KFL #2 might be a bad test to gauge where you are at. 1) One of the passages was from the required homeworks. Extremely dumb on Kaplan's part. I don't know if you did it prior the the exam, but I did and that probably boosted my grade by 1-2 points in Verbal by knowing the answers and saving time for the other passages. 2) Somehow I managed a 9 point increase from by FL#1 (3 weeks apart), while only increasing 3 points from Diag-FL1 (5 weeks). Even with the repeat passage, that's a crazy jump. Overall, the passages seemed not as challenging. I don't know, maybe I'm selling myself short; I really hope we're both feeling the "click". But like killinsound said, take another test to make sure.

    haha, i had a 10 point increase between my first and my 2nd FL... maybe everything just clicked after i reviewed it, or maybe i just had a really bad first full length.

    I agree about the FL2 comment...I jumped on that test too and it definitely gave me a false sense of security as my most recent tests have been up to 5 points lower.

    I appreciate everyone being worried but I had just been on a downward trend for awhile ( maybe over working not to sure) and I finally felt like this bounced me back up. My diagnostic in Jan. was 23, and My scores went from KFL#6 34 ( I dunno why i took that first), AAMC #6 32, KFL #1 30 (I kept falling out of fatigue I think) and I took some time off and I came back and this felt really good. So, I am taking AAMC #7 (which I hear is very representative of the real) thing on Sunday, so hopefully that'll give me a clue. But again, thanks for your input, it definitely motivated me not to slack at all :)
