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

A person doesn't choose their mood. A person is thrown into a mood. However, you can learn to counter a bad mood with a better mood. A calm, engaged mindset is optimal for the MCAT. If a difficult passage has left you feeling stressed, close your eyes and clear your mind for a few seconds before starting the next passage. Don't let the MCAT roll you. Close your eyes. Clear your mind and breathe in slowly for four seconds. Hold it for four seconds. And breathe out slowly for four seconds. Relax your body. You can meditate for just a single breath.
