Hi, what did you guys think of this one.

I thought verbal was decent. Topics on methane reuglator, paradigm models, technology and literature, and usual boring, dry, crap. I managed to finsish on time and I think it was on the same level as Kaplan verbal. The extra pressure and nervousness made it a little difficult for me though.

The physical sciences was ok. Topics on buffers, momentum, Galileo's telescope and other usual stuff. Much easier than Kaplan and a lot more
conceptual. I think it was my best section.

The BS was a little difficult. Stuff on opiate receptors, carbonyl chem, and other stuff.
I had one weird question. Maybe you guys can help.
If a beaver lives in a area of low salt content, does he a) decrease his salt reabsorption at the distal tubule, b)increase his salt reabsorption at the proximal tubule, c)have excessive amounts of hypotonic urine, or d)have low amounts of hypertonic urine. Thanks for all your help.

Anyone recall a section matching up a sequence of RNA with it's DNA template. I'm thinking about it and think I may have really hosed it because it was tRNA(which I didn't take into consideration due to my fatigue at that point). The directionality of the DNA would have been opposite that for other types of RNA...
