After doing thousands of MCAT practice questions, did any appear on your real MCAT?

I have done thousands of MCAT questions already, and I am so MCATed out. Did any of you guys see some questions on the real MCAT that you had already seen in a practice test? In taking practice tests, I see a lot of the same type of questions appearing (there's almost always a Golgi question, and a catalyst question, etc). Does this happen on the real MCAT too where you see a question that you've seen before? <img border="0" alt="[Wowie]" title="" src="graemlins/wowie.gif" />

go study! If you see the same things good, you will be ready for those on test day. Your PR class should tell you what is the most common (i.e. NEPHRON).

There are lots of similar types of questions. But never the same question...

Do a couple AAMC tests and you'll get a feel for things. All MCATs are very similar, in my opinion.

No! for my case. I've done quite a bunch of exam questions: AAMC, Kap, PR, Columbia.

My work ethic is study as much as possible now and ease up coming to the final month.

Once you feel like you know basically everything, ie. similar to the feeling before taking exams that you ended up with 100%, then you might have already become a Jedi.

Train now, you must, or risk being defeated by the force. :cool:

People, check the date of the original post; it was pre-April '02 MCAT.

One entire passage showed up that was exactly the same: the one about the ideal myth of yeoman farmers.

Actually on my MCAT 2 years ago I got exact same entire verbal section as on one of the practice exams. Although verbal is my best section, i didnt do as well as i could have because I was so bored out of my mind that I couldn't concentrate. and of course i didnt remember exactly what i put on all my answers previously. i was very very disappointed. verbal is the funnest part of the mcats because you actually get to learn about something other than science and the least you can hope for is that it's not going to be the stuff you already read.
