I did study very hard the first time- but when it comes to physics and inorganic chem- I thought that having someone to ask questions of would have helped me- plus all the practice tests. Did you feel that Kaplan gave you good test-taking strategy as well?willthatsall said:Everything on the computer is also at the center on paper. Or you can print it out from your computer. Kaplan will make sure you know all the things that could be on the test, but you still have to do the work. You are already in a pretty good score range, so depending on how hard you studied last time, a course could probably help you get a couple more points.

yposhelley said:Who were your teachers? Were they underqualified? I got 9s in BIO and Phys- so I just want to up my score at least two points.
silkworm said:A question, I noticed on the master check-list that full-length 10 and 11 have a "R" after them. It seems they are the revised versions. Does that mean all other tests are unrevised?
Just done #7, I concurr the PS section was way tough. I had to guess on two whole passages and barely finished bio section in time.
My breakdown was 9 each for the sciences and a 10 in verbal reasoning. No, at the worst I think I might do about the same- because I consistently scored 9 and 10s on my practice test but only broke to 11 once on VR. I hope i don't have to take that thing again-what a nightmare.willthatsall said:I think that Kaplan can make a 2 point difference. What was your breakdown last time? I think sciences are easier to bring up than verbal. I wouldn't worry about doing worse if you are planning on working hard at it. You have to make that decision for yourself though, if you think you might get worse then you need to take that into account.

SleepPsych72 said:Number 38 on full length 3 is wrong I think. I thought hydrogen only had 1 proton and 1 electron. How then can it have 2 bonding pairs ( a total of 4 electrons around it in this stupid polywater problem. I would have had a 10 in physical sciences. Verbal was a nightmare I completely bombed it, I'm not kidding either I'm looking at my score a 30 was a 7 scaled!
SleepPsych72 said:Yes with a bunch of water dimers and then it asks you to calculate the fc of a hydrogen atom
Ive been taking the Kaplan proctered tests each saturday.. and then taking a FL on my own in the middle of the week.. and there seems to be no real consistency with my grades.. but the saturday ones tend to be higher (by about 2 or 3 points just on PS and Verbal.. I've skipped the Bio both times on the weekday ones due to various reasons)
I hope this trend (doing well on saturdays) holds up
aamc Q ....i dont think they have 7r..i guess they should have the rest i will repost when i find out for sureethanolabsolute said:My scores have been really consistent lately: FL 1: 29, FL 2: 32, FL 3: 31, and AAMC 3R: 31. Anyone else at a plateau? Also, I have a question, does the Kaplan test center have the AAMC revised tests? the same ones that AAMC's website sells?
i was getting 28s and dropped to a LOW LOW of 21 (lower than my kap diag of 27) on the 5r so i am scaredDaveinDallas said:This question has already been asked, but I've slept since then, so...
How close are the Kaplan full lengths to the real thing. I seem to recall a thread where everyone scored a little higher on the real thing vs. Kaplan. A buddy of mine who whacked the MCAT with a 35 told me the questions feel a little different. Anyone?
premedgeek said:Anyone have taken FL#8, 9, 10, or 11? What did you guys think of them?
ethanolabsolute said:I just thought of anothe question, I have heard that the scaled score conversions for kaplan's full length 10 and 11 are really screwy. Are all the other full lengths good as far scaled score charts go? or are there others that are irregular?
bonez318ti said:The question reads:
A 3kg block slides with a constant velocity of 3 m/s on a surface that has a coefficient of kinetic friction of .5. When the block reaches point A, an additional constant force is applied. If the block reaches point B which is 44m from point A in 4 seconds, what was the magnitude of the original force?
I solved it and got 6N, which isnt an option.. where is the fault with my logic:
ok.. since you covered 44m in 4 seconds, Vf is 11m/s, and since acceleration is change in velocity over change in time, you went from 3m/s to 11m/s = 8m/s / 4 sec which makes acceleration 2.
F = ma so 3kg * 2 = 6N
Why is this wrong?
