Well Im considering taking chem as my third subject. However, I've only taken honors chem.
Now, Im a bit confused about the curve on this exam. The Barron's book says one can get 10 wrong and still manage an 800. I've read on this board that it's actually 4-5.

Now...whom should I trust ? :?

The curve in "Real SAT IIs" goes as follows:

800-800-800-800-800-800-800-800-790-790-780-780

and approximately two raws per scaled from there on out.

It is important to note, however, that this is for the real test... Barrons's curve is intended for their tests, which I hear are more difficult.

EDIT: Oh by the way, you can probably answer this for me (I've had trouble getting response in the past)- can you tell me the beginning of the conversion chart for Barrons? I have an older edition with no table, and I'd like to be able to get scaled scores (I haven't actually taken the real practice test yet- I'm saving it for later).
