Just started doing the EK 1001Qs for bio & it strikes me as so different from the TPR bio passages we did in prep class. TPR seemed waaay harder to me as their passages were so long and a lot of them involved complicated experiments, or experimental techniques I had no understanding of. EK seems more content-focused.

Which is more like the real deal? Should I be worried about passages involving lots of experimentation/interpreting experiments?

Though I haven't started working through either of them, what I have read on this board leads me to believe that TPR is more indicative of the actual test, while EK's bio 101 is meant more to solidify understanding of concepts than to provide an accurate representation of test questions.
