How much scrolling on the real MCAT?

    I was doing some an FL today and I suddenly realized that the resolution on my computer screen is relatively large. For about 80% of the verbal passages, I have to do no scrolling at all to read the entire passage. For those of you who have already taken the MCAT, is the actual MCAT like this as well? If not, approximately what percentage of verbal passages do you think you could see at one time without scrolling?

    Can't remember what %, but the screens at the testing center are pretty small and square. The default font is also rather large. For me, this meant a lot of scrolling, which was kind of annoying, but not hard to just roll with.

    Slightly larger font and small screens at the Prometrics Center I was at. There is more scrolling but it's nothing that would throw you off.
