The learning management system helps you track strengths and weaknesses at a fine level of detail and helps you structure your knowledge-base. The first step: Use the sequential mode in the My Goals portal to assess your overall readiness at the beginning of MCAT review. Take a tour through physics from beginning to end in the first module, chemistry in the second, etc. Assignments for these initial tours are in the bird's eye view section in each of the first modules. Filling in your initial values for the learning goals helps you come to grips with your starting point and gives you a bird's eye view of the challenges ahead. Another big benefit of getting this done early is that after you have initial values entered for each goal, the reporting functions in the My Goals portal will help you monitor the crystalization of your knowledge base as you make progress in the course.
As you make progress in the course you can adjust the values for your learning goals yourself with the My Goals portal or within the modules, and the diagnostic testing system on the site adjusts values as well. Make adjustments to reflect achievement within each topic as you achieve the learning goals. Also, adjust values within topics to reflect your performance within certain passages in practice tests. In addition to these manual changes, the diagnostic tests on this site will also produces adjustments in your learning goal assessment values. In other words, the overall assessment picture in the My Goals Portal depends on a combination of your own self-survey adjustments as well as diagnostic testing results.
