Hey gang, I juss took TPR CBT Verbal 2 and it was brutal. I felt like i didn't understand any passage. Well i understood only passage and i got 5/6 on that passage and every other passage was like wth. So it is difficult to apply difficult strategies if you are not understanding the passage. Any suggest for these particular type of passages? Perhaps write down the MI of couple of paragraphs at once in 3 or 4 words?

TPR seems to be a little over the top when it comes to their difficulty level. For a rough (not to mention free!) comparison, you can check out the AAMC practice test 3. It's free, and I found it was a good indicator of what the real exam was like. It also wasn't ridiculously hard, like I've heard TRP tends to be. Good luck!
