    I am retaking a 24 in about 2 months, which does not leave me much time to study. My weakest section is physics, followed by bio and my strongest is verbal. I have no idea where I went wrong on my first take as it was lower than any of my practices and I spent a lot of time studying. Towards the end I was getting mostly 28-29. How should i best strategize to significantly improve my score in the short time I have remianing? Thanks!

    PS: mod: sorry I posted this in the wrong forum initially, I didn't mean to double-post; so please delete the other thread.

    the EK 1001 physics book is a good way to drill in the concepts. Are you doing poor on physics due to lack of physics knowledge or just getting the questions wrong?

    I would drill concepts along with practice passages and problems for six weeks and then do practice tests for a the other two weeks and clean up any weak areas.

    I have used TPR and TBR for Physics and I now think I can work through most passages. TBR has great practice passages. I was always good with gchem so now maybe I can clear a 10.
