    That's the best free practice exam you can take (straight from the publishers of the actually MCAT). Some people say it's harder [then the actual test], but I think more people say it's easier. AAMC, the publishers, say it's the same difficulty as the real thing.

    Generally, AAMC CBT 8-10 seem to be the most representative of the current test. I've only taken 10 myself, but it did match my actual score.

    from what i've read nothing out there compares to this last test. I took the may 11 mcat and it was hard verbal very long, lots of calculations in ps, and a wide range of bio. The practice from kaplan wasn't close. I finished verbal with 8 min average on all practice tests, and finished with 1 min 30 sec on verbal. It was tough, just suck it up study and take test. Remember the score is scaled so the practice tests aren't that accurate.
