Hey so I am making my test taking schedule, and I heard TPR 8 is almost impossible. For those who have taken it, is it worth it to take this like a real test, or would it be better to do it for review untimed/possible split up into days? BTW i have around 17 CBTs so it wouldn't really be a waste. I am just trying to figure out the best use for this particular test. Thanks!

I just took it a few days ago. It's not impossible. A bit harder than the rest of the TPR exams, but its great practice. Definitely take it like a real test. Just take the TPR exams in order. In my opinion, 7, 8, and 9 are the hardest, with 7 and 8 being the hardest. But yeah, I would recommend taking all your full lengths as timed exams, simulating test conditions as best as possible. Good luck.

Not impossible, but it's much much more difficult than the real MCAT

Really!? I remember there was one passage in the PS that I completely hated and completely bombed too, haha.
