So today I tried a new approach and made a new schedule. The results will show next week so let’s see if it works.
I bought some goodies from the e-mcat.com website! The materials that they sell are pretty expensive. Cost me $145 for an online practice exam, all the online the self-assessments (for all sections of the test), and the Official Guide to the MCAT Exam. The things I would do for a perfect score…

Today was practice test day! I was trying to recreate the testing scenario. But everything that could go wrong went wrong. I was following my schedule pretty well and was on my way to school. It wasn’t until I was at school and hungry for some food that I realized I forgot my wallet at home. CSUF and my home aren’t exactly five minutes away…
So long story short, I went home to get my wallet and on the way to school I hit traffic. LOVELY. I absolutely love traffic *subscript* “Said no one EVER. I was originally supposed to be at school 2:00pm to take a practice exam. I ended up starting the exam around 4:00pm. Ugh. Wasted time ain’t the business.
The test was a fail. AGAIN. I don’t think my mind was mentally ready AGAIN. The test is definitely a metaphorical and literal marathon.
I took a pretty long nap during the physical sciences section.
To think positively: That nap was quite lovely.
I also got the exact same score (as my first attempt) while taking the exact same free practice test. This time I attempted more questions on the physical sciences and biological sections! I skipped over the verbal reasoning. (Perhaps I was still drowsy from my nap during the first section) For some reason, I thought I knew all the answers to them. That was a bad presumption.
The cherry on top was I had the urge to check my phone. And like most college students during class, I checked my phone during one of my “breaks.”
WELL THAT WAS LIKE OPENING PANDORA’S BOX. Never again. If there was something I could have forgotten, it should have been my phone. I blame you technology. Just kidding! I need you to take this practice test.
A sidenote: If you are ever taking the MCAT, I suggest buying the practice exams that they have on the aamc website.
