Which AAMC test would recommend taking first if you've never taken a AAMC one before.

Also would you recommend taking that AAMC test first or takign Kaplan FL 3 first. Thanks!

Another way to go would be to do AAMC 3 first to see where you are at and then use 2 or 3 kaplans to work on your weaknesses and test taking skills if they aren't solid already. Then use those skills on AAMC 4 and see how you did and repeat the above step. Then take the rest in order. Just another way to do it.

Finish up the good Kaplan FLs (1-6) and then move onto the AAMC. When you get to the AAMC, take them in order starting at 3.
out of curiosity whats wrong with the other Kaplan FLs????

They repeat a lot of passages that you've either seen in previous tests, or on your lessons/hmwk practicing. This can completely throw off the accuracy of your timing, etc if for instance you've seen a verbal passage before. Also they are, in general, just confidence killers. Most people see a lot of grade deflation in these FLs. Esp 10 and 11. I'd just say away. After FL6 move onto AAMC 3 and start adjusting to the different style.

I don't want to start a new thread but can anyone tell me how the AAMCs line up in order of difficulty?
