    I have a little over a month until my MCAT Date (Mar 31). I have taken the Kaplan diagnostic and FL1, only. I plan on taking 4 more full lengths. Would my time be better spent taking Kaplan's Full Length or AAMC's. Which ones specifically?

    AAMCs exclusively! The newer the better (7,8,9,10)!

    Do both if you can. But AAMC is more important.

    I found my scores on the AAMC and Kaplan tests to be pretty consistant, its just that the testing style is somewhat different. Kaplan seems more heavy on calculation for the physics. Verbal is similar to AAMC, maybe a bit harder, and BS section is good.

    Like everyone else said, AAMC 7,8,9, and 10

    especially the verbal...these tests are the closest thing to the real deal.

    do as many as you can, AAMC and kaplan. I'd do Kaplan first, as I think they're harder. Then hit AAMC...they're verbal and PS seem easier.
