    i wish someone would put this up as a sticky.. i nearly missed all these questions
  4. Is this a real thing?

    Dear niruben,

    Firstly, on behalf of all the potential AMC candidates here, I thank you for all your great helps.

    Secondly, could you please reply my following observation?

    My observation is that many (if not most) of these 2005 recall questions have been around in the previous recall lists (eg, in 2001-2003 recalls). Not only the subjects but the questions look exactly the same. It looks too good to be true.

    Is it likely that the AMC tests will repeat so many questions?

    With all my thanks and best wishes!

    An AMC condidate
