    I really studied hard! I used the princeton (cracking the pcat), Barron's, pcat flashcards and kaplan!! After studying for 3 months hoping to do well I flunked! Please anybody give me advice I will retake it in jan. That will be my last chance if I want to go to pharmacy school! I graduated this may with bachelor's in chemistry the timing messed me up I ended up guessing with few seconds left and the reading was alot I had a headache before I could start reading! HELP HELP HELP ANYONE PLEASE!

    Based on your sentence structure, I'm assuming that English is not your first language. Therefore, the best way to get a good score is to score absurdly high on Chem/Bio to raise your overall score.

    Use Dr Collins and study a little everyday for next 2 and a half months. If you want more advice, there are several threads that give advice on how to improve your score on different sections.

    Pretty much this. When I was studying, I basically phased out VA and RC completely and just studied chem, bio and QA.

    Ok thank you! For someone with bachelor's in chemistry the exam made me feel like I didn't know my chem anymore because of the timing and pressure! Smh well this time I know where to channel most of my studying on. (Btw my bio and math are above average) gotta work on that verbal and chem.
