Hi this is my first post so please go easy on me...

I just took FL2 and got a 505 (128/121/129/127), which is actually lower than my FL1 score by 1 point :(( I am a non-native speaker but that CARS score is really freaking me out. I have finished all AAMC material with FL3, 4 left and I have been doing JW every day getting 2,3 wrong per passage, but really haven’t been doing that much practice. I got a 123 on FL1 so I was hoping my score would improve on FL2 but it didn’t :( What should I do moving forward?

My other sections have been pretty consistent but really not where I’d like them to be. I have been running out of time on C/P even though I feel like I have a good grasp on the material.

Also I was also hoping to pull my P/S up to at least 129/130. I have been reading
the KA notes since FL1 but I don’t know what else to do... I feel desperate and ideally I am testing on 8/1. I have been studying for so long but my scores have not been getting closer to my target score at all...

Jack Westin is terrible for CARS. Use something else.

Start reading more things in real life that involve elevated writing: The Atlantic, New Republic, etc.

Why do you say that? I’ve been struggling with JW hardcore. Is his passages not representative?

No 3rd party is truly representative. Some of JW’s questions and reasoning for correct answers are strange to say the least. That being said, don’t focus on the number correct. JW passages are useful in that you can practice strategies, attention to detail with language, and be exposed to rigorous passages from a wide range of disciplines.
