    April testers,

    How are you pushing yourself to learn/relearn the last bits of information and secure things you're really INsecure about?

    Am I the only one beginning to freak out? :eek:

    Going to hit the books hard for the next 3 weeks, then go through about 5 practice exams in the last half of March. Then relax before the big show :)

    yikes... 19 practice MCATS in one month is huge and you might risk burning out.

    Just stop taking the full-lengths about a week before the exam. All you'll do is freak yourself out, and it won't help. This is from someone who did not listen to that advice and spent the whole week before getting lower and lower scores and completely panicking.

    I haven't really started studying yet, but I'm fixin' to go hardcore with my TPR science workbook until the MCAT. Plus I have spring break the week after next, so I'll be doing nothing but MCAT practice material then.
