    I just took test 2 from the TPR verbal workbook and did reasonably well. I was wondering if anyone thought the practice tests are easier than everything else.
    Also, I wonder how it compares to the real deal?

    thanks

    premyo,

    i took test number 3 today. i did better than previous diags with 52/60. i also finished about 15 mins early, which i never did on the other ones. hopefully, we are just improving and thats why it may have seemed easier. does anybody know of a socre conversion for the verbal workbook tests? anyway, keep pushin hard everybody. the finish line is in sight.

    TPR= the Prineton Review

    Capt,
    I used the conversion from the test A-D book, so you got a 12. As for finishing early, I finished about 10 minutes early.

    4 from the workbook was definitely harder than the other 3. I missed about 50% more on that one than on the others.

    hope that makes you feel a little better :/

    I didn't know that there are poems on the MCAT. Is this true? Has anyone encountered one on the real thing?

    well the actual MCAT doesnt have it, but TPR decided to have fun, so they included a poem.
