I have noticed that on the 3r-6r there is usually a passage or two that has 9-12 questions on it. Is that also true of the real mcat or are they messing with us. And why are the passages with a boatload of questions also the hard passages...ie picasso

they had to modify the "R" tests, meaning they had to cut/edit out five questions. i'm *HOPING* that their edits are screwy and the passages will be a bit more balanced. i hate those 10 question passages - they're ALWAYS the hardest!!!

pretty sure 7 had a long passage too. I would also say that 7's verbal is significantly harder than the others.
