    Everybody is talking about how much harder the recent MCATs are in comparison to the AAMC practice exams. Does anybody have any input as to how they compare to the Kaplan FL's?

    I think the real MCAT is harder because you have to read the passages and get more info out of them. Less outside knowledge can help you.

    Plus, the passages are so dense and weird that it makes the real one worse.

    Kaplan #9 was right on point with my MCAT, the bio passages where about the same lentgh and they required about the same level of passage extrapolation to answer questions. The physics was aboutthe same level of difficulty. The Verbal was about the only thing that differed but that was expected.
