to those who have taken the pcat more than once and improved the 2nd or 3rd time what did you do different to get a high score. i mean its obvious that study more and this and that but how would u improve on vocab and reading and what different material did you use than the first time.
i would greatly appreciate any response
thanks in advance

Well, I took a pcat course, I finished up more of the prereqs (orgo and a&p), and I looked over notes/questions I wrote after the first exam. (After the first test, I immediately wrote everything down that I could remember so I would have it for the second test.) There were definitely duplicate questions on each section and there were duplicate reading passages.

I think so, as a combination between the prep course and taking more classes, my score jumped from an 83 to a 97. Even if you didn't write down information, just the experience of taking the test is so helpful. :)
