    Upon reviewing the AAMC I see im making careless errors, changing the answers from correct ones to incorrect ones this is a common recurring problem, and is costing me ~2 points especially in the Bio section....how do I correct this....writing tomorrow

    It's a mental issue more than anything. Other than telling you that you need to focus more, I don't know what else to say. Read carefully, move slowly, and pay attention. Double check (and triple check if you have the time) to try and minimize careless errors.

    This actually was a big issue with me too, but surprisingly enough it was with the PS and not BS. Now that I've started the AAMC tests after finishing TPR, I'm making dumb mistakes in the BS instead of the PS. It's pretty frustrating, but what kinda worked for me with the PS was that I muttered the questions and answer choices under my breath so I was "actively reading" and I always made sure to double check math and read through every answer choice since I had a habit of picking one and not looking at the rest. I just gotta apply this strategy with the AAMC tests, and hopefully I'll see a jump. Good luck!

    Just took a FL. Scored an 11 on the PS, but seriously 4 of the questions were just careless errors.

    It's so aggravating, I need to boost my concentration when I'm reading the question/answer choices.
