Hello all, This is actually my first post. So, my appologies that I have not been participating. But I always found it helpful to read other people's scores and opinions. And it's my turn to return the favor. So, first off, my scores. PA 30 QR 19 RC 18 Bio 20 GC 22 OC 19 TS 20 AA 20 Besides the PA section, which I am surprised how well I did, my scores aren't too impressive. I was wandering what you guys would suggest me doing. Retake it or not? My GPA is 3.5, and I have one more semester to graduate. I will be applying for 2008 cycle. So what do you guys think? Which schools would I have chance to get in if I don't retake it? I'm an international student as well so no state schools. This is how I studied. Since I usually take above 19 credits hours for classes, my studies have been on and off depending on how busy I get with schoolwork. I used the Kaplan (MCAT and DAT) book, Achiever, Topscore. Did not take the course. Barrons for PAT I can't give much suggestions about the academic portion of the test but PA section, I'd say go with Achiver. You can use other sources as kind of a "warm up." Do as many warm up questions as possible before you even try to use Achiever. It'd be waste of good problems if you don't have the fundamental. Aperture passing: you can eliminate at least 2, so go from there. Barrons helped Orthographic projections: first try to visualize with the two pictures given, don't look at the answers first which can confuse you. Angle: use process of elimination until you have to make a choice. If close, guess it and mark it. You SHOULD come back later to re-try. Somehow you have better chance of discriminating when you come back. (to do so, solve the easy ones as quickly as you can) Hole-punch: Achiver is the way to go. Use Kaplan's symmetry method for every folding if you know what I mean. Cubes: if you miss any in this section, you got no chance. Easiest section with least "perceptual ability" needed. Form development: most of them are obvious. But if you have time, actually draw the figure and shade in (don't do it for every question). It might take longer but I'd say you will get it 100 percent if you do. When you feel like you got stuck, mark it and move on. But make sure you do other questions lightening fast and come back. And don't hesitate to invest in many questions as possible. Since I did not take the course, I saved like what 1000 dollars? So, spend more to get questions. I hope this was helpful.
