Well Priya !
The fact that u r reading Kaplan now is good. Please read FA
in between ur Kaplan reading. I mean that when u finish reading a subject in Kaplan lecture notes
, then read the relevant subject in FA
. Do not memorize FA
and only read it quickly as u may have sufficient knowledge from Kaplan lecture notes, however after finishing FA
of the relevant subject, please read the MCQs of the relevant subject in Kaplan Q book
. When u finish all the subjects this way then please start 2nd read of Kaplan lecture notes
once again and FA
in between them as described above. When u finish a subject this time then read UW Q bank of the relevant subject and apply this same strategy for all subjects. Please notice ur performance in UW q bank. I mean notice how many questions are u answering correct. If ur performance is above 50% then u r going really well. Then do NBME Form 6
online and evaluate urself. If ur score is low then have another read of kaplan lecture notes
+UW Q bank and do NBME Form 3
online. This time u would have definitely improved ur performance and if ur score is according to ur satisfaction just have a quick read of Kaplan Q bank
once and then go to the exam.
Regarding ur question about reading Kaplan lecture notes
, I would like to suggest u to try to understand the text and not memorize it. However, I don't mean to read it as newspaper, I mean that try to analyze what u read but do not use a lot of time on first reading. As u continue reading the next subject after finishing one, u may feel that u have forgotten the previous subject, however, remember that it is normal and almost everybody feels this. As u repeat the notes and MCQs u will feel more and more confident.
Should u have further questions, please ask me!
Good luck for ur exam....
