Question Free 150 Test 2011 Version is easier than 2008 version

hey guys, ive done both the free 150 from 2011 (newest version) and also I had the free 150 from 2008 on my computer (i guess i downloaded it at the start of med school)....i found tht the 2008 version was harder than the latest version. has anyone done the older version? which one seems to be a closer approximation to the real test? thanks

I agree Agree

I've been testing the free practice materials every year it comes out.

I agree with you the latest version seems easier than the ones before. But that doesn't matter.

As we discussed here
http://www.usmle-forums.com/general-...-usmle-cd.html

The free 150 questions exam does not reflect the reality as far as difficulty and content but it does give you an exact mirror-image of the software and the question style.
