Take a match to the Kaplan Books, read the EK Books and supplement them with other strong sources if there are any holes, then take the FLs.

Three parts of any good MCAT study plan:
1) Content review- Learning the material. Use EK, TBR or TPRH.
2) Practice passages- Take after learning the material and to polish up any weak areas. TBR/TPRH workbooks and to a lesser extent, EK 1001
3) FLs- Towards the end of your studying, take FLs to get used to the test and find out what areas you still need work in.

You're lacking that second component. Parts 1 and 2 should be concurrent because it's important to test your content base with MCAT-style questions as you learn.

But definitely do content review BEFORE FLs.
You likely won't do amazing on a FL right now.. and if you happen to do good on one topic (ex. acid/base chemistry) it may lull you into a false sense of security. You may know how to answer the few specific questions you saw but you may not know how to answer a related question without reviewing the content first.
