Practice AAMC CBTs vs Paper: Differences?

    I was wondering: Are the practice CBTs by AAMC the same as the paper formats from before? Do they just cut off some of the passages to make it shorter to mimic the real MCAT CBT?

    I have all the AAMCs exams in paper format. I was wondering if it is worth buying the CBT formats? Is there a difference?

    They're the same just shortened. However, I believe writing the test on the computer is something you'll have to get used to. I suggest doing AAMC 3R(Which is free btw) online. And maybe a few others as well (I believe princeton and kaplan also offer a free cbt off their site). Simulating test experince is something you'll want to get the hang of.
