I took my first mcat and did not do well so I retook it in August and did not do well b/c I just freaked out. I mean...I would've been ecstatic with a 27.
My biggest problem was reinforcing my mistakes by doing as many practice problems without understanding how I got things wrong/right.
Right now, I got some EK books and kaplan practice exams. I'm done with TPR--they're too overbearing.
I was wondering if any of you guys study without taking a day off during the summer???
It's so hard not to. Don't ya think?

What worked for me was studying M-F several hours each day, and then taking a test over the weekend, and taking the other weekend day totally off from studying. As the test date approached, I increased the study time per day dramatically, and started taking tests during the week...but still made it a point to take one day a week off. I think it really helped me from getting burned out.
