Hi everyone! Is KA CARS realstic (in terms of passage/question difficulty) as well as the score you could expect on an actual FL from doing KA CARS only?

I found KA CARS passage difficulty fairly representative of AAMC materials but their questions slightly off. I wouldn't expect a good score from using KA CARS only, since AAMC materials are extremely valuable.

Agreed- the passages are good, but the questions are less so. The best way to improve in CARS is just to do tons of practice, so use KA CARS to work on your reading skills and use the questions to assess comprehension, but be wary that the questions won't be that representative of the real exam.
