    So if you can do the Kaplan Subject tests cold, and you can solve the problems without refering back to the formulas or any other information are you good? ie are you good to get a 30? I haven't taken a FL yet, because I m kinda scared. :p

    What do you guys think?


    Thanks and hope everyone's rocking their final study hours! :luck: :love:

    Take an FL. An AAMC FL. I think you'll find it not so bad if you are doing well on Kaplan topicals.

    You'll do yourself a disservice, I think, if you don't take at least a few full-lengths. I'd hesitate to predict a score based exclusively on performance on the subject tests.

    Are you talking about the subject tests or the topicals? The subject tests are just like 50 discrete questions - no passages.

    If you are only doing those, you *need* to take a FL. There are timing issues with the passages, different strategies, etc.

    Just take a FL to get a feel for what the real thing will be like.

    Someone told me the Subject tests are actually DAT materials.

    Definitely AAMC this close to the real deal. They are more similar to the real test.

    And thanks!! :love: I think she's pretty cute too.
