kaplan exams are crap, I really dont think they are very representative at all (i posted on this somewhere). Honestly, i dont know what is representative of that beast. I strongly feel that the hard as hell TPR A-D tests are probably pretty good for preparation.anucar said:What about the Kaplan exams? Are they harder than the AAMC?
exactly. I wasted $80 on that emcat. I should have known that it was just a money-sucking machine.Cerberus said:
Don't you now feel for those of us who had to take it twice? BTW, how the heck are you still awake? I crashed after that thing!Cerberus said:

Don't worry, I thought I bombed it both times. How you feel doesn't tell you your score.
I haven't taken TPR A-D, but I completely agree that the AAMC tests were not representative. I think the Berkeley exams were more representative.Cerberus said:
Cerberus, I agree 100%. I remember telling myself during the BS, The closest to this is TRP A-D. Something I never anticipated. Oh well.Cerberus said:

Act now and buy TPR B&C from me I also have two hardass BK exams for sale if anyone is interested and Kaplan 1-5 w/answers.JayMD2004 said:Hey all,
I'm a virgin MCAT taker and I'm gearing up for the August MCAT . I was just wondering how I can get my hands on the TPR A-D practice tests?
I think everyone should get the AAMC exams, what I hate to see is people being lulled into a false sense of security because they are scoring 34+ on all the aamc exams. Thats the purpose of this thread, to inform people that the test is a little harder than they might expect from the aamc exams.blz said:Cerberus, you gotta relax man. I dont think it's a good idea to try to sway people from buying the AAMC exams. I think my MCAT was almost exactly like the AAMC exams. By the way, the only practice exams I have taken were 3R-7 (I have looked at some of the PR and Kaplan tests and none of them looked like my test at all). I'm sure most of you guys are overreacting. Wait till you get your score back before you tell the whole world AAMC is crap. I'm sure after you get your 30+ your opinion about the test will change.
You know, I really think you should wait until you get your scores back. I think you will find you did much better than you think. You really don't know anything for sure until then. Another thing that is important about the AAMC is that you recreate all testing conditions.Cerberus said:I think everyone should get the AAMC exams, what I hate to see is people being lulled into a false sense of security because they are scoring 34+ on all the aamc exams.

I will disagree. I echo Superveil's sentiments. I got form DK, lotta calculations and 65% physics. Even the chem questions were sometimes calculation oriented.fun8stuff said:-Kaplan exams sucked. Their PS was the worst, too many calculations- not at all like the real thing.
