Start out week 3 by taking a MCAT practice test. This will help you consolidate all of the concepts you read during the previous week and give you an indication of how much material you naturally retained.

After you take the test, begin focusing on the subject area that you did the worst in. Spend 2 - 3 days and read each of the sheets, taking notes and trying to understand the material. If you do not know your learning style, it would be a good idea to learn the best way to study. Some people study better through drawing images, while others do better by making flashcards.

If you want to figure out your learning style, you can check out the following link to take a Myers-Brig Personality Test, and also a learning style test.

For the last 2 - 3 days of the week, study the other subject in the topic (Physical or Biological). So, if you studied Physics during the first part of the week then review Chemistry during the second half of the week. Do the same with Biology and Organic Chemistry. Unless you studied verbal reasoning, then an idea would be to spend the whole week reviewing this topic.

Verbal reasoning is probably the most effective topic to learn because it applies to the majority of the questions on the test. If you can master verbal reasoning skills it will be easier to answer the passage based questions of the test as you will be able to draw information more efficiently. This will allow you to get questions right without necessarily knowing the content.
