    According to the site:
    "To reduce speededness, the Verbal Reasoning section will be reduced by five questions."

    SPEEDEDNESS? :rolleyes:

    Yep, no dictionaries of the English language contain the word speededness.

    I wonder if the introduction of scores 14 and 15 will bump the distribution of the scores over a notch, essentially making a score previously worth X points now worth X+1.

    "Questions on Alkenes, Benzene, Phenols and Ethers will no longer be included on the test." That must be welcomed news for the orgo-haters.

    I wonder, though, how much a 5-q decrease in the Verbal will actually impact "speededness." From my experience, most either have the capability to finish on time or choose to skip a passage altogether.

    Lastly, a little off-topic, where is there a link on the AAMC page to the updates page? I just searched around and I can't find it.

    Separations and Purifications
    The Covalent Bond

    these are the topics for organic acid, i think aldehydes, ketones and others are under oxygen containing compounds. and ir an dnmr are under the seperation and purification techniques.

    Decreasing the number of questions will not make the verbal easier. You still have to read very fast, as I found out while using EK's 101 Verbal passages which have only 60 Q's. If they want to do reduce the "speededness" of verbal get rid of a passage or two.
