    Hope no one is getting annoyed I make a thread every time I do something :D
    So test # 1
    AA: 20
    Bio 21
    Chem 19
    Ochem19
    PAT 21
    QR 23
    RC 20
    TS 20

    Anyway, so I feel like PAT was extremely easy (compared to CDP) so it must curved harshly.
    I got about 5 wrong on each sciences, I didn't feel like I missed any.

    Any input?
    2 weeks or so till D-Day.

    while scores are important to get a good estimate, they are not as important as how u felt during the exam. did u feel too stressed, too edgy, etc?

    my opinion u should use the exam to gauge how u are with the exam, not so much the material.

    btw.. for TS exam 2&3... do all ur work with a fine tip marker and dry erase board. just so ur ready for it come exam day. search and destroy RC tactic only works if u can read ur marker smudge... lol

    Your QR score is impressive. Any suggestion for studying material?

    Felt great all the way through except on RC...Extremely stressed.

    Also, I did use the marker and dry erase. Doesn't bother me.


    None, sorry. Always been good at it.

    Thanks

    I fixed the G chem error (Topscore made the mistake # 65). Bumped me a point on GC then that point bumped me up to a 21 on AA. Woot. I know that isn't really a mistake.

    Aiming for a 23 on next Topscore. Really want to get it in 2-3 days.

    Haha, I know you will do fine. An hey, what's wrong with my 19.

    Just by the way, some extra info:
    Bio: 4 wrong: 1 was a ridiculous question that NO ONE could actually know and one was a silly mistake.
    G chem: 4 wrong: One question was ridiculous and 1 was a silly error
    O-chem: 6 wrong: Everything I got wrong here was very easy, I haven't studied the basics so I will try to get this up. Also, 1 silly error.

    I am disappointed with O-chem though, meh, will get it up to a solid 30 :)
