    Princeton Review Test 4911 BS 9 PS 4 V 8

    Princeton Review Test 4931 BS 8 PS 8 V 9

    First test was before ever studying, now after 2 months of studying. But when I look at my raw scores missed, according to AAMC conversions my score is higher. How reliable are the TPR tests compared to the real thing? I'm going to take 3R on Monday.

    V 44 Right

    TPR's exams are much harder than the AAMC. You actually started out pretty well compared to most people. If you keep studying you are bound to be in at least sub 30's. Why didn't you post (or take) TPR 4921?

    Also, the conversions are "different" because each test is "curved"

    don't worry about the AAMC vs. TPR score conversions. every test is different; score conversions can't necessarily be compared for any practical use.

    your numbers aren't bad, either. i'm sure you'll find taking 3R a bit more pleasant than, say, TPR 4911 or 4921.

    lots o' luck!
