How reliable are the PR scores?

Hi I just took a practice PR test and scored 5s on each section. I am really worried, any advice?

5s are pretty low but TPR is notorious for being hard. If this is one of your first exams and you have 7 weeks of studying left, you are maybe ok. But if you are taking the jan exam then I might be worried.

I scored a 25 or so on my first TPR about a month ago, and hit a 34 on AAMC practice last week

I have about 2 months but this is me after going though all of the physics, chem, and organic books.

Did you only use the material from the PR?

I used TBR for Physics, Chem, and Orgo and but use PR if I am unsure of something and want quick review. TPR Bio is awesome. overall I really like PR stuff actually.
you should be fine. I would switch gears and go into practice mode, start eating chunks out of SWB.

5's are a little bit of a red flag. I think my TPR test average was a 23 (I took 4 exams), my AAMC average was a 28 and I scored a 30 on the real thing.
