Default Do you have any advice??

I am an international medical student (from Greece ) and I finished the 5th year of my studies. I have been studying for USMLE step 1 since September 2015 along with studying for my medical school exams (and not only ). Yesterday I finished the whole FA (and by finished I mean I have gone through all the FA sections-at least one time-and added what I thought was missing..). My sources were:
Kaplan lectures and notes
& Anki (Brosencephalon decks) to support my studying.
Now I just need to take a little break 15-20 days (but I will continue doing Anki ~1 hour/day). Then from August I will start studying (again) and I am planning to take USMLE step 1 by January (2017).
What's your opinion on how should I study these months ? I thought that it would be reasonable to spend 2 months to review what I have been through and 3 months Uworld. But do you think I should study only my notes & FA, should I just look at another source (one of my great concerns is that I have not studied Goljan).. I am just a little worried
Any advice is appreciated.

your doing great, from my personal experience, I wouldn't suggest any new source at this time. Start Uworld immediately and in the end stick to Uworld, FA and ur notes.

Good luck
