For content review, is it best to focus on one subject at a time (like gen chem week 1, orgo week 2, etc) or alternate subjects by day (like monday chem gen, tuesday orgo, etc)? i’ve heard of people doing both schedules

I preferred to alternate because you start to make connections between subjects and observe principles in action in a variety of contexts. The mcat is pretty interdisciplinary and it’s pretty rare to have a passage that only deals with one subject exclusively.

I agree that alternating is the best way to study. If you split the subjects by week, you'll find that you end up forgetting a lot of what you learned, especially if it's on a week schedule. Alternating is a good way to keep things fresh in your mind.
