    Hey Guys,

    I just took the Kaplan Midterm, about 7 weeks into my studies. I have another 5 weeks until Test Day. I saw improvement in some areas, but not in others. Is the Kaplan Midterm a realistic outlook as to your progression/does it represent the actual DAT well? I'm kinda panicking at this point, so any advice would be great. Thank you.

    Kaplan Diagnostic:
    Bio-14
    GChem-13
    Ochem-12
    PAT-14
    QR-20
    RC-19
    AA-16

    Bio-14 :thumbdown:
    GChem-14 :thumbdown:
    OChem-17
    PAT-18
    QR-16 :( My timing was really poor, didn't get to answer like 1/3 of the section
    RC-20 (I don't study this at all, probably will continue not to.)
    AA-16

    So far I've been using Kaplan materials, CDP, and I just started Chad's Vids yesterday. I also plan to complete Destroyer twice and do some Top Score tests before the real thing in 5 weeks.

    Am I screwed?

    5 weeks seems more than enough to do well! keep studying hard!

    Chad's and Destroyers for GC and OC should be enough from what I've heard from other people

    You're fine. That midterm is hard! Search around this forum and you'll see people who scored high despite low scores on that wretched exam.
