there was a question about imprinting (one of the non-passage questions) and another about behavioral conditioning on AAMCS 10 (another one of the non-passage questions). Is this stuff actually going to be on the mcat? it seems pretty weird to put on when it isn't listed as something you need to study for the mcat on the aamcs website and isn't in any of the review books (TPR, TBR, Examcrackers, you name it). what's the deal with this? I hope they dont pull a bunch of these questions out of nowhere on the real thing.

bump. i gave this some more thought and this seems really off. it's like they're either prepping for the 2015 mcat or it's just trial stuff. either way these questions dont seem like fair game.

No, not until 2015. Some of this material was previously included in the domain of testable topics. Please don't post spoilers of AAMC FL questions.
