    theoretically, that should be reflected in the curves

    It should. Interestingly, the curves for the 2 are similar, so difficulty may not be a measure of anything.

    If you purchased the tests and have them graded online, they break the questions down by difficulty.

    I have hard copys of paper back tests and solution booklets of tests 3-9 aamc not the computer printouts. At the end of each test they give you a chart stating EXACTLY which questions were hard, moderate, or easy. The original posting is a compiled figure for OVERALL difficulty of each test...i was too lazy to state exactly which questions are hard moderate or easy.

    So the AAMC 7 was relatively easy?

    Does anyone have any comments on how they did on this practice test relative to an actual they recently took? I would be interested to know how up-to-date the difficulty of the exam is.


    Thanks!
