Hey-

Immediately after taking the test, I knew I wouldn't do as well as I would've liked. I skipped 10 (!), because I thought that I'd have time to go back and do them.

I ended up getting pretty much what I expected, 690.

I am definately taking it again in June, because my target score is a 730- if I had gotten 6 of those ten right I probably would've gotten that score.

However, because I knew I skipped so many, should I have canceled? Will it look bad if I'm applyign to very competitive schools?

not much to do about it now, hm?
stop kicking yourself, study barrons, and retake in october. email me if you want some help with anything. email is in profile.

thanks I'll be doing that.

You don't think it's smart to take in June?

you only have about 24 days, and barrons is a lot of material. give yourself more time to digest it, provided you dont have to take anything else in october.
I personally like both barron's ap chem and satII chem book and I would recommend using both of them to prep for the SATII.
You are already in a good score range, you just need to bring it up a bit. Barrons wil lhelp you get some of that random trivia they put on there. and some questions that were in barrons showed up on there almost word for word...
Good luck!
