    I used Kaplan book. I also bought the PCAT Pearson practice test. I’m scared of the Quantitive Reasoning Session. Anyway, let’s try our best. Hope to hear good news!!! Good luck!!!

    Just took mine today! Much easier than I was expecting, except for QR, seemed a lot harder than practice tests (tons of calculus and weird notations I hadn't seen).

    Unofficial Scores:

    Bio: SS: 485 PR: 99
    Chem: SS: 455 PR: 98
    Reading: SS: 426 PR: 93
    Quant. Reasoning: SS: 423 PR: 85
    Composite: SS: 447 PR: 99

    I used a kaplan practice test and it was like 5 times easier than that lol. A lot of the bio section was pretty straightforward (just know your hormones) and same for the chemistry. you can eliminate usually 2 answers pretty easily sometimes 3

    Congrat! It’s a super high score. You did such a great job. I just expect I can get 70. Hopefully, It will be easy for me too. Thanks for sharing!

    There were a lot but they were more passages that you could find the answer in, rather than simply having to know certain material

    Took mine the 7th

    Got a 99 PR!
    96 BIO
    99 Chem
    99 Reading
    98 Quant

    I thought the Chem section was a ton easier than the Pearson Practice Tests. The other sections felt equal.

    Only used Collins of which I used every Chem Practice Test and about ~6 tests for Bio and Math. Reading I realized cannot be improved just through practice tests, so I only took one of their tests to get a feel. Bought all three Pearson Tests, only went through 8 and 9. Was extremely spooked by the Chem sections but actual test toned it down.
