    Instead of typing a full breakdown, I want to share some thoughts to whoever are still studying. If you really are interested in the materials I used or other things, pm me or leave a comment here. Otherwise, my scores are updated on my predent file.

    First, the most important of all, study at your own pace but don't slack off by keep rescheduling your test date. This gives you time to forget things as well as relax your nerves. SOME nerves and adrenaline are good.

    In addition, it's IMPOSSIBLE to go over everything. Choose the materials that best supplement the knowledge that you already have.

    Also, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!! Do as many problems as possible. Practice from different sources because it will give you a diverse look at the same subject coming from slightly different perspectives. The more you see them, the faster you can find the right approach to the problem.

    Lastly, DON'T FREAK OUT!! You can do it!! If you prepare well (everyone has a slightly different definition for "prepared" but you know it best when you ARE prepared), then you will get it!!

    (Btw, I don't know about other prometric centers, but good news is that the marker is now thinner. However, you can't erase the boards...you have to raise your hand to switch for a clean one in case you are out of space.)




    All in all, I just want to say, IT'S POSSIBLE. Just put your heart into it.

    Peace.

    I checked your score on Predents, good job. It's nice to see someone from Cal doing well. :) Are you class of 2011 or 2012?

    Really great GPA and scores. You're going to have no trouble getting adcoms to take notice.

    Great work and good luck!

    Thanks man! Since this was a retake, I was kinda worried that I wouldn't do well. Hope the schools have a chance to reconsider my app if they have already reviewed it.


    lol nvm then. Good luck on your test tho. Go Bears!!
