    I just started working through the AAMC practice exams and noticed that the passage number (i.e. the first passage of each section is labeled Passage I, next is labeled Passage II, etc.) is listed in the top left corner of the passage. (This feature is lacking in the Kaplan exams).

    Will someone that took the exam recently (Summer/Fall 2008) please comment on whether or not this feature is present in the actual exam?

    It tells you which passage you are on if I remember correctly.

    Yea, I'm pretty sure we're told. I believe it's on the bottom left as well. "You're on passage 2 of 7," or something to that extent.
