Any word on how good/reasonable/good practice are the new GS tests?

Members don't see this ad.
My scores aren't so hot, averaging 500 after two tests, but I feel like I am learning a lot from that weird? Reps on SDN mentioned that they updated their tests after two that were released in April were criticizied and I think they've done a really good job of matching the new test. Bio is riddled with AA questions. Chem/Phys seems to be balance the orgo/chem mix of the new test while still asking about physics. And CARs seems good too.

Sometimes I think the data presented in bio/phy sections is a bit tricky to analyze but I'm pretty sure that will only help me. Explanations are really good too IMO.

Psyc is kinda hard but like I said relaly helping me focus on what to study.
on a side note, we should keep in mind the concept of cognitive dissonance in that test-takers could potentially find an exam inadequate for its cost, causing them to improve their idea of the test...just sayin'
