During the 6th week you should take a practice test using only the reference guides which allow you to use one last crutch. After this week you will be doing practice tests with nothing but your own mind.
During this week you should spend a day reviewing each of the topics (Physical, Biological or Verbal Reasoning) using the reference guides, flashcards and review questions. It is important to continue to review the concepts while doing the questions. Each of the review quizzes are written in the same style of the MCAT to give you a better feel for the exam.
You should be aiming to do 100 questions per topic per week. The best source to find extra questions are the 1001 Examkrackers books. However, feel free to use all of the available quizzes, reference guides and practice tests available on this website.
During these weeks it is important to begin to master test strategies such as mental math and quick solving of problems. It is good practice to do the timed questions on the website as the MCAT will be administered on a computer instead of pencil and paper. Therefore if you study based on paper you will have an added inconvenience come test day.
Overall you should be trying to answer the questions with decreasing reliance on notes and reference guides however. The act of practicing taking MCAT style questions over the next few weeks will train you and really let you realize your areas of difficulty.
Once you pinpoint your areas of difficulty, it will be easier to fill in the knowledge gaps and begin to really apply the concepts you do know. Taking questions this way is a method to cement information and work on applying it directly to problems in a timed manner.
