How should I budget my remaining practice tests?

    Hey everyone, I had a question about reusing practice tests and I'm not sure if anyone else has been in the same boat.

    I am running through practice tests until my test date on May 31. My most recent test scores bounce between 30-35, usually falling around 32 to 33. Although these are scores I can be happy with, I really want to aim higher so I can improve my odds for acceptance.

    I've taken Kaplan 1-5 and AAMC 3-5. The tests I have at my disposal are all the remaining AAMC's, Kaplan 6-10, and some TPR ones that I unlocked with a book. Additionally, I have the online Kaplan and TPR passages for each subject area. As you can see, I have more than enough practice tests than I can get through before the test date. Honestly, I would actually much rather take a bunch of passages every day as practice, but I don't have enough time to go through them and thoroughly analyze why I got them right/wrong.

    I feel confident as of now and I have a good amount of time remaining to really tie up loose ends. However, I am trying to manage my risk and I don't want to blow all my good practice material at once (ie all of my AAMC tests) and end up having to retake the test again because I scored sub 30. What do you recommend I do to budget my practice tests and not burn up all the best ones in the event that I actually need to retake the exam?

    Thanks in advance!
