as far as getting a feel for your score....do you think it matters that its in the old version??? there are extra passages and questions for each section...
maybe to cwfergus there is no difference and he/she does all of the things you mentioned......Sure. You'd also save a lot of money if you shoplifted your clothes, walked out of restaurants without paying, or stole your furniture out of the back of a truck. What's the difference?
those tests are the exact same as the ones online.... with just a few extra passages b/c the old MCAT is longer.I'm certainly not going to advocate theft here but I should point out that these old tests make for good practice after you've taken the online ones. I have a set of old ones that I hit up after I take a real one to get all the supplemental questions from the real administration of the test ... and AAMC does not make this material available via legal methods that I could find.
That's what I'm talking about. You get nearly 50% more [authentic] questions. With the exception of a few topics in orgo (alkynes, aromatics, alkenes), the subject matter is identical. I like to time myself on all the questions I can't do online and treat it like a "mini" MCAT. Hell, if you saved up all the additional questions over all the tests it would add up to something like 3 extra MCATs for your same buck.those tests are the exact same as the ones online.... with just a few extra passages b/c the old MCAT is longer.
