Additionally I wouldn't spend much time at all doing paper practice tests. Since the test is almost exclusively computer based there is no sense practicing for a test format you won't actually take.
In my experience, getting a good book with practice tests is the best preparation, the computer versions are very similar in structure. If you have a problem with content, you need to plan on working on your weak spots for at least a month to get a high score.
Knowing the content is one thing, being ready to take the test is another. Being in the mindset to take the test correctly under pressure, answering all you know for sure the first pass, working on the ones you are not sure of the second pass, and guessing at the rest after eliminating the answers you can rule out on the third is something that you cannot ignore.
It is so basic, but people can forget the very basics of test taking on these big tests. The percentage of people with unanswered questions should be zero, but is is much higher that most would think. This is why these timed practice tests, paper or not are so vital.
