Week 12 is about relaxing and doing basic review of concepts. Any attempt to cram massive amounts of information at this point will only hurt you come test day. Any gaps in your knowledge you should be able to cover by having effective reading and critical thinking skills from the hundreds of practiced test questions up until this point.
If you want, feel free to review the flashcards and reference, but refrain from taking ANY practice tests. This will only stress your mind out and you need to be able to perform effectively come test day.
Use this week to work on any gaps in your knowledge base and re-read for comprehension. Try and build connections between the topics as this will help with information retention.
2 days before your test you should not review any material or do any practice problems. This is so you can relax your mind in preparation for test day. Make sure to eat well and get plenty of sleep. These small things make a big impact come test day and will definitely improve performance. On the day of your test you should wake up early and eat a good breakfast. Get to the test center 45 min to and hour before your test so you can get registered and all settled in.
This will reduce your anxiety and leave you feeling more prepared. Make sure you know how to get to the testing center and you should drive there beforehand as suggested in week 11.
