How helpful are Pearson Tests? In what way(s) do they help to prepare for the PCAT? Are they highly recommended or do you think they're just waste of money?

Highly recommended! Biology and chemistry actually have some passage-format questions that I only found out from taking Pearson. Also more practice for verbal and math.

Did you buy all of them? or did you pick any particular tests?

Yes if you have the money, buy them all! I was on a budget so I just bought PT 3 and 4 and those helped a lot! I've heard that PT 4 is the hardest so I used that one to gauge myself right before I took the real thing so I would know where my score would be.

From your own experience, which one is more similar to the actual test? I'm on a budget too :)

I think PT 4 is the best one to prepare for the exam! If you're only going to buy one, then make sure you get PT 4. I think that PT 3 is next on the list of helpfulness and PT 2 is the least like the exam out of all 3.
