Hi Christopher,

I'd check out a few books at the local/school library.  Also, any major
bookstore should have many books that include sample MCATs.  Retail
bookstore people may or may not be helpful, so you might want to try a
college bookstore.  Don't overlook reference librarians, either at
schools or public libraries; I've found them to be extremely helpful and
a terrific source for a variety of tasks.  

Finally, some of the professional testing centers (eg, Kaplan in the US)
occasionally offer free sample MCAT simulations.  Great way to kill a
day, I hear.

Hope this helps.  Best of luck,
Mike Stillman
