Week 4 will be the mirror of week 3, however without the practice test. During week 4, review the topic that you did not review before. For example if you reviewed the physical sciences in week 3, review the biological sciences or verbal reasoning in week 4.
Remember to do all of the practice problems at the end of each chapter. These questions are designed in an MCAT format to test your comprehension of all the concepts listed on the AAMC topic sheets. These topic sheets should be accompanied with you every time you study. All of the resources are available on this site, so there is no searching around.
If you require something, use the search bar, and if we do not have it, email us and we may build it if we find it useful.
Take notes during this period and review the material in the learning style that fits you best. It is important that you really try to understand the concepts instead of memorizing concepts. The MCAT does not simply ask you to regurgitate information. It asks you to apply the concepts in a manner that also incorporates critical thinking.
At this point you should start to master the test strategies necessary to be successful come test day. You need to practice limiting the amount of time spent answering questions. Since no wrong answers are penalized, it is in your best interest to answer every question on the exam.
During week 3 you should use the online flashcards to review the chapter previously studied. This will help you retain the information. There is a massive amount of concepts, equations and mechanisms on the MCAT and you will forget the information if you simply move on and do not constantly review the material.
