    took both and I think Kaplan is more similar, but TPR is still good.

    If you still have AAMC practice exams to do, do those...

    Princetons are a good 2nd option but markedly below the AAMC's

    no, generally tougher....

    and even the really tough mcat material doesn't have the same feel as the tough princeton stuff....

    Definitely tougher. Not including my "diagnostic" AAMC, my AAMC average is about 4 pts higher than my TPR average. I think that's relatively common. Although, there are a few TPR's that actually have very easy (yes that means "too easy") sections (none of those sections being VR sections!). I think TPR is more difficult primarily b/c of their difficult PS and even more difficult VR.

    tpr is harder but reflects the aamc more than kaplan IMO
