    Hi everyone!
    I've searched the MCAT boards but I can't find anyone in my situation. Is there anyone who took the paper and pencil test last August and is now planning on/ or has already taken the computer based MCAT? If so, did you study the same way? Were you able to take any practice tests? I'm a little nervous about the situation. I need to be able to take a practice test on the computer just as it will be on the actual test day. Thanks!!

    Great Thanks. And these are similar to the actual test? Have you taken the new computer test? I know when I was studying for the August test, the practice MCAT's on the MCAT website were much easier than my practice tests from princeton.

    Me! I took the free CBT 3R that AAMC has on the website without studying and got exactly what I got on the Aug paper test. I'm studing the same, but I'm going to buy a few of the CBT practice tests that AAMS is selling.

    I found the practice experience nearly identical to the real thing. The only difference was my flat panel monitor vs the old bubble-shaped screen at the test site. Also, since I didnt use earplugs during practice, I found it eerily quiet during the test.

    Finally, e-mcat.com gives you a few choices when you start. to simulate the real thing, you have to make a few obvious selections before you start (I don't remember, but they are like show answers: off, sequential: on, easy questions only: no, etc.)
