The second week is all about continuing to master the concepts and building your "mental palaces", which are study strategies used to connect ideas and feature increasing memory retention.

During the second week, the focus is on getting an overall general concept understanding of the entire MCAT. When you take a step back and look at the MCAT as a cohesive test that all links together, it will become much easier to study.

For a few hours every day, you should focus on one topic at a time. For example, on Sunday read the entire biology section and do the practice questions at the end of every topic sheet. On Monday, do the same for chemistry. Take a 1-2 break from ALL MCAT material, and try to just read instead of taking notes, that will come later.

Again, DO NOT TAKE NOTES, for week 2 you are simply reading for comprehension.

For now, it is important to get a feel for specific content MCAT questions and the breadth of the information contained on this test.
