    If you already used the AAMC test for the 7/6 exam, you shouldn't reuse them as practice tests. You can review them for identifying weak content areas and question types you miss.

    I disagree with you.

    I think you can reuse old AAMC tests aslong as you took them more than a month ago. I retook some of my AAMC tests and I did not remember anything from the exam.

    Did you thoroughly review those AAMCs after taking them the first time?

    I'd imagine that after review, I would remember some answers for a month, especially for the difficult/wtf questions.

    Yes, I always did. I took all the princeton exams, AAMC exams, and Kaplan exams. I also did 100's of passages on the TPR website. When I retook the exams, I vaguely remember seeing some questions, but the majority of questions felt new. (I retook the exams after 3 months after taking them).

    i think it depends on how much practice you're doing. if you're doing dozens of PS, verbal, and BS passages a day, you could easily forget stuff after a month like you did. however, if you're studying like most people who use 1 set of books, you'll eventually run out of material.
