What is the difference between the online and paper AAMC diagnostics?? I heard that the online ones are shorten versions... does that mean the actual CBT MCAT is gonna be longer??

And when people say that your AAMC practice tests are a good indicator of the real thing, do they mean the online versions or the paper/pencil? Am I correct in assuming the online AAMC practice tests (3R, 4R etc.) are reflective of the real thing, give or take the difficulty?

I've heard that the online versions are a much better indicator.

The paper AAMC are in the old long MCAT format. The online AAMC are in the present CBT format. The CBT format is shorter than the old paper format.

Wierd how they still talk about and make available the old paper tests when all MCATs now are given CBT based...
