How do you "go over" what you get wrong on the practice exams? What worked well for me when I was going through prelims was to make a flash card for the formula or concept I missed. Then review all flash cards daily (or use a spaced repetition software like Anki). You want to understand the question well enough so that if a similar question comes up again, you'll be sure to solve it efficiently and correctly.

Say I got 11 questions wrong, I go to every question that was incorrect and watch the video and follow the written solution. Once I did that for every problem then I start from question 1 and redo every problem I got wrong until I can get it right. Once I go through all thirty questions I take a short break then I redo the problems I got wrong on the old exams and then return to the most recent to reattempt the incorrect problems. I know thats a process but it was working fine up until I got to level 6.
I was thinking that since I have so much time until I can take the exam I should just relearn the topics that I consistently get wrong. Tedious? Yes. Will it work? Maybe. But I have time so why not try?
I have never thought of going over the problems I get right. Some of them are so easy to me (normal approximation, transformations, discrete distributions) what I am really struggling with is Bivariate Uniform, deductibles (even though policy limits and coinsurance is close to 90% correct), and random variables.
