    For those who have taken the beast, and achieved the score range you wanted. Did you ever use the "Review All" button during your test to make sure all questions have been answered? Is using this button a waste of precious time?

      Sure. If I finish a section early, I'll usually review marked Qs first. If I finish that, I will do review all, just to flip through the sections and see whether I made any mistakes. I don't think it's a waste of time... I did it less to make sure all Qs were answered and more to just double check my answers.

        yea, it's good to use. unless you're running out of time that is. one of my computers was slow and took like 15 seconds to load it. not to mention it took that long just to flip pages! the computers were terribly slow. my 2nd MCAT was at a different location, computers were better, way better monitors, but the keyboards were old and LOUD. can't find perfection

          I achieved 1 point above my goal score. I had time to use this during BS and PS, which I did just to make sure that I had answered everything. On verbal there was no time.

          One of my instructors told me that they studied the phenomenon of changed answers. They found that the vast majority of times a person changed an answer they changed it from right to wrong. Moral of the story....be careful of second guessing yourself.
