Can I use previous AMC exam questions when studying for my AMC MCQ Exam?

Whilst the AMC does not directly state that you are not allowed to use previous exam questions to study they will withhold your exam results if they believe you rote learned questions rather than used your own clinical knowledge. 

Section 7.2 of the AMC MCQ Examination Specifications Book states that the Panel can withhold your results if they believe that you produced exam results which cannot be confidently accepted as reflecting your true ability.

If this happens you will be required to defend how and why you should be granted a pass. 

It is also important to note that when you go into the exam, you are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement stating that you will not share any of the questions in the exam. Remembering and sharing exam questions (usually referred to as recalls) can open you up to legal action and can disadvantage those you shared the exam with or those that unknowingly use these questions when studying.
