I didn't take the AAMC11 practice test.
My actual was BS 11, VB 10, PS 13. (Overall: 34)
I actually didn't take many practice tests while I was studying. I spent more time reviewing material than practicing, which was not a wise decision. To be honest, the AAMC tests are MUCH easier than the real thing, as odd as that sounds. I do think they post deceivingly easy tests, but that might just be me. Even then, it's still good to do practice.
For those of you who were unable to register in a test center in your city or state, be careful when you're picking a hotel. I had to stay in a hotel the night before my MCAT to be closer to my test center, and since there was a night club right next to the hotel, there was so much noise that I ended up getting a headache. Not a good experience, and I think I could have done better had that not happened. Not that med schools would care, so I can't really tell them that. But if you have to stay in a hotel to be near your test center, do look up reviews of that hotel; I did that too but unfortunately, no one had mentioned a similar experience so there was no way for me to know. -.-
Last advice, another obvious one but really important, make sure you do your best to stay calm during the actual test. I had 5 minutes left for the last passage on my verbal and really freaked out. I probably could have done better by staying calm and being rational.
But I'm still happy with my score.
I really thought I had done worse.
