From week 5 on out, you should be taking a practice test every single week. This will help you prepare more effectively by really understand the style and timing of the test. Being able to effectively give time and effort to every single problem on the MCAT will yield you far more than if you miss half a section.
During week 5 and week 6 you should take the practice MCAT with only your written notes. Try not to use the website. This will help you realize what areas you lack difficulty in and need to focus on more in the following weeks.
During week 5, you need to review and take notes on the final section (Biological, Physical or Verbal Reasoning) as from now on you will be mostly doing practice problems in order to get a feel for the style of the questions. On the test you will not know the concepts that will be tested so you need to be able to answer any and all questions effectively.
At this point you should also be starting to use the flashcards to review the concepts you have already studied. This is to help retain the massive amount of information that is considered for the MCAT. By using the online interactive flashcards, you will have another means to review the information and build connections between topics.
Overall at the end of this week you should have reviewed all of the concepts that are tested on the MCAT. This will hopefully give you the breadth of the information contained within this test and give you the fundamental framework for the next 5 weeks of studying.
