    Hi, is it just me or are the AMCAS exams easier than the TPR exams especially the verbal section?

    thanks

    Def. not just you. I hear that TPR is more indicative of question type but AAMC is better at score predicting.

    AAMC exams are regarded as being easier than TPR exams.

    I didn't care for TPR tests at all when I was preparing for the MCAT. I found their verbal sections to be particularly bad. I used Examcrackers for verbal and the AAMC tests for everything else.
