PS:13 VR:9 BS:15 ; 37R, I was expecting to score better then 30, and estimated my score around a 34 during the month long wait. The only section i wasn't worried about was verbal. My highest score was a 14/8/14, my average was 35ish +-.20; I had never practiced a timed and complete writing section, although i always mentally thought of a topic I would right about, so i was surprised with the R, and also because I rarely write. I'm disappointed with the verbal, but I understand that this score is good.
Man, with those other two numbers, the VR score totally rounds up to a solid 10 in the mind of a sane person.

this is the 2010 thread, but there is a 7/16/2011 thread too. lol this confused me too.

From what i hear, Berk, Kaplan, and TBR practice exams are pretty good.
AAMC is always the best.

and verbal, try to pretend you're the critic when reading the passage, like why would someone begin a sentence like that and why would the author put these key points in this format and stuff, and try harsher conditions.

good luck :]

Woops, this was last years thread. Moderators should probably lock this to avoid confusion.
