The AAMC FLs have a word search feature in the top left corner of the testing screen. Is this feature included on the real MCAT as well? Can be a pretty helpful tool.
Thanks

Huh, never noticed that on the practice... would come in handy on verbal, for starters (i.e. "The word [i|blah[/i] as used in the passage means...").

what about using Cntrl F? I know the computers we test on are probably stripped down but I think that's a OS setting or something that might not be able to be turned off... would it work?
Won't work, just like ctrl-c or ctrl-v or any other keyboard shortcut won't work. Escape on the other hand will work (and mess you over).

Highlighting will be allowed, striking will be allowed
I remember I took the gold standard practice test, and one of the things they let you do is if you highlight a word in the question, they highlight that word, if it exists, in the passage. Is that possible on the test???


i'm not getting my hopes up

Probably not. I dunno if you can highlight questions either. I think you can only highlight the passage.

No.
Supposedly hitting escape reverts your essay to the last saved change, but I never actually tried it.

can we highlight a new sentence and still have the previous sentence highlighted?like lets say highlighting certain parts in each paragraph? if yes how?

would the highlight go missing if you click anywhere on the passage?if yes it sucks big time...
