I agree. Focus both on understanding the types of questions and your speed. After all you can't get a great score if you don't finish the entire test in the time allotted. If you can take the test under actual conditions a few times it will help a lot.Originally posted by J33
Then focus on practice tests. Good luck.
I second this, I studies sporadically untill two weeks before the MCAT. (Had an internship presentation and paper to do the first week of August, test was on August 16.) I know I learns a ton in those two weeks.Originally posted by J33
1 month is a lot of time! I didn't really start studying for the mcat until about 3-4 weeks before and improved dramatically in that time. As long as you did well in pre-reqs and remember the important material you don't need to do much more than a "once over" review of the material. Then focus on practice tests. Good luck.
