dont worry about negative trends. its not cuz you're "losing knowledge" or getting dummer. its cuz its hard to sit 5 hours by yourself on a PRACTICE test and it takes more focus to concentrate with each PRACTICE test, since u know it doesnt mean much...just make sure u come ready to kick a$$ on saturday.

This is true, I dont think I can handle anymore practice tests. I am just over them. I find myself reading something and going "oh, who the hell cares"

I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry too much this next week. I took the MCAT's last year, and I, too, didn't feel ready for them. I don't think anyone does. It's hard to feel ready when there's so much material and so many other activities and school work to worry about. I took several practice exams through Kaplan, and only once did I actually finish the PS section before the time was up. If it makes you feel any better, my actual scores were several points higher than any of the practice exams I took. Also, don't panic on the day of the test. I remember thinking that I completely blew the bio section. I felt like every question I was able to narrow it down to two answers, and then had to guess. I didn't feel confident about any of my answers. I seriously thought I was going to get a 6 on it. Surprisingly, it ended up being my top score. Anyways, again, try to relax this week, even go out a little bit or do something to take your mind off of it (i went out the Thursday before the test). GOOD LUCK! Just think, this time next week you'll be done! :clap:
