I am a first-year university student. There are eight days of no class until my week of finals. How should I stay productive and focused?

I have a fairly good idea of what study strategies (practice exams and questions) and such I'm going to use (but sworn favorites are always accepted).
My basic question is that I have 211 hours (minus sleep) until I have four difficult (yet manageable) final exams. How should I spend my individual study time to maximize my productivity and motivation? I don't want to not get as much done as I could because I know I have so many days.
I'm fairly new to the pomodoro technique but I kind of enjoy it, though I often underestimate the pomodoros required for a task, or get frustrated when a task takes longer than it should. Anyways, I was planning on just filling my days with roughly 24+ 25 minute pomodoros (taking 5 min breaks in between , and 15-20 minute breaks for every 4). Any suggestions?
