Are most people taking the computerized OAT now? I can see advantages and disadvantages for both. It just seems like people would do better on the written OAT because of time. I just got done with the written OAT on Saturday.....did anyone else run out of time on the reading and math sections?

Most people run out of time on RC and QR, don't worry about it. I don't think I even make it to question 40 for the the QR and still did well enough.

I also took the written oat this saturday. I think it was harder than the one i took during october. I have to say there were so many word problems in the math section that i had to skip most of it. I ran out of time on the reading comp as well. Damn. Anyhow, the bio wasn't that difficult. I think. :)

i took the written one on sat as well; i thought overall it was easier than the oct one, but rc was harder (for some reason, i thought oct's rc wasn't too bad). now we'll have to wait 6-8 weeks for our results =(

I was glad to stumble upon this thread and find out that I am not alone in having ran out of time for the QR and RC. The QR was especially brutal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Physics and natural sciences went really well for me though.
