    Hey guys,

    I was thinking of purchasing some TBR practice tests, but I don't want to waste my money on them untill I know how comparable they're to the AAMC ones, or if they're a good practice.
    How are the workbooks??? I don't want materials full of context and memorization. I want something more conceptual with a lot of strategies on test taking skills.
    It seems like TBR is another version of TPR, since they bit off the name and all...What do you guys think?

    :horns: hookem!

    I took 1, it was about 3X as hard as the aamc exams. Still probably not a bad investment though.

    i like the practice exams--- super tough, but will thoroughly prep you for the real deal, so i'm told.

    the books-- VERY detailed, esp bio. the chem and phy are good, the VR is okay. i use the kaplan books more than the tbr books.

    good luck

    I love them. 1 and 4 are very realistic. Others are harder than the real deal.
