    Im a 2013 hopeful too. I took all my prerequisites in gtc and have a 4.0 GPA. I applied in 2012 but did not make it because my score on the kaplan was 69. Just don't take the test for granted and you will be just fine.Good Luck!

    Hi blessed I hope that we will make it this time!
    Can yoy tell me what was the hardest subject in the test?

    I wished I could be of more help. The A&P questions were kind of random (No anatomy just physiology). Either you knew it or you didn't. Personally I can remember encountering a couple of physiology questions from muscle contractions and the brain. If you have time pay more attention to A&P 2 but more importantly use the actual textbook. The writing was the hardest part to me. You had to figure out where to put punctuations as well as where to fit sentences in the passage. The math was very easy. You can study from any pre-algebra book. No geometry just revise how to add, multiply and divide fractions. Hmm percentages and solve for x and some algebraic expressions. Knowing the order of operations (PEDMAS) will help a great deal. This is as far as I can remember. The KAPLAN book wasn't very useful to me though. I hope this helps.

    Blessed I have the KAPLAN book and have been going through it and noticed that in the test at the back of the book the science portion doesn't have a lot of physiology in it. Is this why the book wasn't any help to you? I feel like a lot of what the book goes over is chemistry and physics. Also how was the Vocab part on the test?

    Thanks for the info, blessed78!

    Is everybody ready to attend their meetings? Which one will you be going to? I'll be going to the earlier meeting, since I have a class that afternoon and will already be there.

    There were no chemistry or physics questions on the test. But I can remember most of if not all of my science questions were physiology questions from A & P 2. The questions were more indepth than what they have in the kaplan. As far as the math the questions in the kaplan were a lot harder than what we had on the test and that is why I suggest the pre-algebra book. The reading and comprehension were very easy. But the writing was the hardest part; that had to do with punctuations and what statements fitted best in the passage and where. There were no vocabularly as far as I can remember. Hope this helps!
