Default Relative difficulty of AAMC practice tests?

Can anyone provide an approximate relative difficulty spectrum for AAMC tests 3-10? And further, if possible, can you approximate where on this difficulty spectrum the real MCAT usually lies?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know how similar the tests are to actual MCAT but from my experience:

3,4,5,6 - if you know your stuff, and don't do *stupid* mistakes in adding and multiplying, lol, nothing unexpected. That said, the VR in #5 killed moi!

7,8- although they are said to be harder, I think the difference was having alot of expriment based questions in BS and PS rather than info and retrieval so it was different in that way, but I scored best on those.

9 - pretty decent too, nothing unexpected or hard per se

10- also pretty decent, did best in PS

lol, I donno how much this helps but Gluck anyways!

I found tests 3-7 to be quite easy, especially the PS. Tests 8-10 were slightly harder.

Compared to the real thing, I think the PS and BS sections of the practice tests are significantly easier. If the real MCAT is a difficulty of 10, the practice tests would get a 7 or 8. I'd say the VR's from the practice tests are comparable to the real MCAT.
