SAT II Biology easier than Barron's book?

I'm taking it tomorrow and I got a 660 on the first test and a 720 on the second one. I thought that some of the questions were very hard and specific and was wondering if it will be like that tomorrow. How will my scores translate

    Really? I thought it was easier. They didn't have any pictures with three questions underneath that I didn't understand. On the Barron's book, they had a picture of something from the small intestine and the difference of roots in monocots and dicots. A lot was on stuff on the actual test was stuff I just learned in class, like the yeast and balloon and the root of a plant.

    Most people who thoroughly study with Barron's find the actual exam easier.

    I studied with Barron's and honestly the tests are accurate. I was getting 780+ on practice tests (Barron's, sparknotes, and PR) and got a 790 on the actual thing,
