MCAT isn't curved.I have the same question as the OP actually. I'm in the TPR class and have taken 2 practice tests but their TPR's practice tests. I have yet to take the AAMC practice test. I think TPR's practice tests are a little harder and they give you a lower score because you have to remember when you take the real MCAT it will be curved. But then again nothing can substitute with you actually taking the real AAMC practice test to gauge how well your doing.
I think that's reasonable when going from the review companies to AAMC. I haven't done a TPR FL but it seems people say Kaplan and TPR are more difficult [though Kaplan's scale is far too lenient, it makes it impossible to get a "bad" PS score even when you bomb it], while the AAMC's being 'easier' have a much more strict scale. AAMC is definitely still the "closest" to the real thing I feel, though their BS is a bit too rewarding for external knowledge while at least my April MCAT was very very very critically passage based.Thanks for the responses. I originally asked the question because my score increased dramatically when I took the AAMC practice tests as opposed to TPR's practice tests. The TPR's practice tests are probably harder than AAMC's. I'll probably just gauge my progress on the AAMC tests since it's more similar to the real thing.
Buy their books and you get access to online content. I don't think you can buy the exams themselves though (TPR Elite has either 2 or 3 tests and a bunch of practice passages online and it's like 40 bucks)can i buy TPR practice tests without signing up for the course?
