    I hear from some people that they breezed through Bio in 20 minutes, other peope saying that didn't have enough time because they sucked at math. Do you mind telling tell how much time you spent on each section of the sciences? Thnx in advanced!

    Actually I was wondering if you actually ran out of time for the Sciences e.g. felt pressure to do the problems ridiculously fast like the PAT or QR

    No, if you know your stuff, it will be enough time for science, I have seen just one or two complaines about timing for Science in SDN. good luck

    heres my time breakdown

    bio-20min tho trying to cut it down
    gchem-35min- i suck at math
    ochem-20min- either u know the reactions or not so its quick
    total is about 1:15

    i use the remaining 15 min to go over gchem to make sure i didnt make any dumb math errors

    pat/rc/qr is to variable to tell, but i usually finish each with a few minutes to spare
