Well so i just realized that I missed one of the easiest question. it was on the BS section, what do eukaryotes and prokaryotes have in common:

I. plasma membrane
II. mitochondria
III. ER.

I think I put down II, thinking that the question was asking, what do they have in difference... Did I remember thsi question correctly? Tell me that it was asking about the difference between the two cells.

Did anyone get that grapheme question? Anyone hate verbal as much as I did?

It would be II and III for differences, but as I recall it asked for similarity. In the synesthesia passage, I think grapheme referred to an element of the written word. I agonized over that one, though.

I think the answer for what they have in common was the fourth option (although I don't remember what it was, maybe nucleoid region?)

In terms of verbal, yes I hate it and no, I could not figure out that question since I didn't really understand the passage to which it belonged.

The whole exam seems like a blur.

Wait so liverotcod, you had form EM? For the ball tossing question, if you toss it and it flies back at you... elastically.. what is the net change in momentum?

Also why does the pan of water, continue to have waves after you move it and set it down?

never mind my suggestion about nucleiod region, it makes no sense.
I wasn't sure if there was a nucleiod region either too.

I can't believe I missed such a stupid question like that one.

Shoot. Hey by the way, my name is also Jess.

No, I had EG, but we must have had some passages in common. I had the synesthesia passage in VR, and wasn't that a stand alone question on prokaryotes vs eukaryotes? Anyway, I had the waves/pan of water passage too, which I think was the trickiest in PS. I think I chose conservation of momentum for the question you mention, but what were the choices?

Luckily, my memory of the test is so bad that I cannot torment myself by remembering questions I missed. I only cause myself pain by reading questions that others can remember on this site. I know I shouldn't, but it is impossible to not read the posts about missed questions.

I think it was a) gravitational b) conservation of energy c) conservation of momentum d) none of the above?

I think I put down conservation of momentum too. I can't believe I f-ed up that question about euk. and prok. I really hope I read the question correctly cuz that wouldve totally axed my chances.

hey liverotcod- I saw your prediction for your score... you don't feel the veerbal was difficult? I thought the only way I could meet my potential is if everyone else felt the same way with me.

Don't get me wrong: I *always* think verbal is difficult. However, in practice I must have guessed right on the tough call questions, because I scored well even though it seemed hard. So, the prediction was assuming that I had approximately the same luck in the real thing, which didn't seem any more or less hard than, say, 6R.

I had form EH and that question. I put I for what they have similar. I also had that verbal passage. I can hardly remember it though

I had EH, but I didnt have these physics quesitons... not that i remember anyways

but it sounds like we had similar verbal and i thought the verbal was easier than normal.

I had form EG and I had both the pro/euk and the synthesia passage.

For the Pro/Euk:

It did ask for similarities and the one thing was the plasma membrane. Prokaryotes don't have membrane bound organelles.

Synthesia passage:

All i remember from that one is the question about which of these words would produce the same color response.

not/knot
scene/seen
knew/keen

Words like that, I choose the one that started with the saem letter cause that is what the passage said produced the response

The other question I remember is what of there stimulus would produce a synthesia response and I choose seeing the word trumpet and hearing a loud note.

The pan of water passage (seiches) was pretty tough. I also chose conversation of momentum.

Good memory, I also picked the same for the first question.


Do you remember the other choices to the second question? If I remember correctly it was the last question of the set. I can;t quite remember what choice I picked.
