    Everyone says that AAMC IV and V are more representative of the real thing than any TPR, Kaplan, etc. test. So you should definitely do those two if possible. That having been said, although I haven't written AAMC V yet, I personally didn't find AAMC IV too different from any of the TPR diags I've done, either in difficulty or in content.

    The AAMC practice items i was talking about were these 2 supplemental books they provide when you purchase their practice tests. One book is for verbal and the other book is bio and physical... anyone ever use them?

    I never used the AAMC materials. That requires giving AAMC more of my money.

    I spent the money on another Kaplan sample test book. My personal feeling is that AAMC's stuff is nonessential, and I proved my theory.
