The tips begin at a different place in each module. The advice moves along with the stages of the course.

Try not to watch the clock during the exam. It's too distracting. The unit of flow for the MCAT is 30 minutes. Come up for air at 30 minutes and then 60 minutes. Make sure you've answered about 20 questions each time. You're on pace to finish the entire section with 5-10 minutes left. However, if you're at 17 questions at 30 minutes, you need to go to plan B for the next 30 minutes. Take a deep breath. Don't rush passages. Plan B gives you more 'get out of jail free cards' for questions that may have you pinned. Choose the least worst. No time to go back to the passage. No time to try that problem again. Flag it and move on. Play just a few extra cards and you're back on schedule.
