Few questions, I finished the AAMC practice tests and I was wondering how I could prepare better...

First off, I did Kaplan test 10 and it was really hard, like on those(kaplan) tests I missed on average 20 questions each section and it kinda scared me. Do you think its because kaplan's are really hard? I ended up with 35 or higher on each of the AAMC practice tests....

Second, how much organic is on the test? Like how many passages 2, 3 or more?

third, the organic syllabus has no alkenes or benzens, I was wondering if its because very few of these appear or if it was a mistake not to include them...

And besides reviewing stuff, what else are you guys doing?

THANKS!

TPR workbook problems. This Saturday I'm taking AAMC 7. I'll take 9 next Saturday, hopefully at the test center. I'll try to do some other AAMCs as well.

hey missing 20 on kaplan bio and physics sometimes ends up as an 11 trust me i know it too well. as far as verbal i think that's not so good. i was wondering the same thing too about the difficulty question.

Taking practice tests and reviewing the whole thing the next day. Taking notes on stuff i got right and wrong.

Im also reviewing (by typing up) all my notes from the EK books. I figure by going through them and typing them up I'll review most of the stuff ive forgotten in the last 10 weeks. And by having to use the EK book to decipher my illegible handwriting I'll do even more review

But im starting to wonder if thats a waste of time - being 2 weeks left and all. it might be more worthwhile to just review the notes/text w/o typing it all up.

This is what I have set up as well. I will probably take a couple more in between if I can find the time.

Taking AAMC 8 and 9. Finishing up the EK1001 workbooks. Listening to EK Osmosis a couple of more times and writing down equations and important concepts that slip my mind like relationships and stuff.

Good luck to everyone!
