Default AAMC practice tests vs real thing

Hey guys,

The practice tests are awesome.. wasting your paychecks on them .. not so much
That aside, how similar were your real scores compared to the practice tests? I am consistently scoring 11's across the board - should I rely on this as in indicator ? Thank you very much!

P.s. I bought AAMC 4,5,8

AAMC's about as close as you're going to get. Your actual score will probably be a bit different - it might be a bit higher or lower in some categories - but if you're getting 11's across the board, I'd expect close to that on the real test

I agree with Ralk, the AAMC tests are by far the best indicator. AAMC 11 is definitely the best one since it's the most recent, but 9 and 10 are also good choices. Ideally you should do them all, but focus on the later ones if you're on a budget.

I'm probably in the minority who feel this way, but I didn't notice a huge difference in difficulty or style between the old AAMC and the new ones.

I've done 3, 4, 10, 11 thus far and I think they are all great indicators for the real thing.

OP, you're in great shape!

I started the same sort of thread last year, where I posted my stats from all AAMC practice tests and the real thing:
