I took it today (5/14) in Houston. I think i got the older version or if it was the new one i did not really realize it. I used UW and Kaplan Qbank, questions were very similar to them.

I got surpisingly lot of molecular biology questions, i worked as a researcher for many years and it was a big help for me. There was no any new media format, only the usual heart sounds, pics and few anatomy questions.
