    check and see if your academic advising center/advisor can get you a discount on the AAMC tests. I can get them for $20 apiece instead of the $35 normally charged. Pretty nice discount if you ask me.

    Agreed. They are the latest and most representative of the real MCAT.

    9 and 10 yes agreed.

    how in the world is 8 anything like the real one. is has half as many easy questions than the other two. and twice as many moderate ones. also the curve is not changed to reflect this difficulty.

    i guess its good preparation for someone who want to know what an "if everything doesn't fall your way" exam is like and can prepare accordingly.

    9 > 10 > 7

    You might also look on eBay to see if you can find older paper versions of the other AAMC exams, because they have more questions than the current ones and it honestly doesn't make that much difference after a while whether the questions are on paper or on-line.
