    I took the Kaplan, knowing I wouldn't get accepted into the program because I hadn't completed all the required coursework by the application deadline, so my first Kaplan test was a dry run. I barely didn't pass the science portion (the first time) and when I took it the second time (for real) I was surprised to find it was the same exact test and questions. So that helped. After I didn't pass the first time, I immediately went to my car and wrote down as many of the science questions as I could remember and studied those, in case the test repeated itself the second time I took it, and it did!

    Really??So what would you recommen to focus on?? And do you remember any question so that i could get an idea on what to expect??

    There's really no one topic to focus on. I would know effects of aging, cell structures and their functions, the heart, neuro... Unfortunately I cannot be too specific due to the fact it wouldn't be fair and I also can't recall the specifics. The Kaplan study guide did help some, as a general review of A&P, to help refresh your memory on some stuff. You can probably pick one up used on or amazon. Just remember, if you don't pass the first time, write down your memory of the questions like crazy to study up for the next time.

    I understand and thanks for the advice hopefully I will only have to take it once but will review on aging and cell structure

    I have the same exact Kaplan score... But my gpa is a lower..

    They will mostly look at your prerequisite grades, especially the sciences. That was my overall college gpa

    Do the 3 liberal studies courses count towards your pre-req GPA?
  10. by   thedeazy
    I don't think so, because I was admitted with those courses in-progress. So I hadn't even received a grade yet for them and I got the acceptance letter.

    Congrats! Nah, don't be nervous, I'm from CA too, just moved to Tucson in December! You'll be fine! And Flag is an awesome city! If you've never been there before, it's definitely not the Arizona you expect! You'll love it! Go prepared for snow in the winter!
