i think u shd go hru FA once thoroughly and then do UWorld with it...that will help u in scoring bettr,understanding the concept and will give u lot of confidence.

how much is ur subscription?...its better if its atleast two months.with proper conviction...wat u can do is
1.read the basics...anatomy biochem physiology asap
2.go for uworld q.bank for these subjects...
3.go for pathology....here read uworld systemwise....i.e. entire system CVS then go for its questions...solve them and ADDON and mark imp stuff in FA...also possibly make notes of imp and new concepts you come across...
4.then go for pharmac....
5.before you go for pharmac antimicrobial related stuff...START MICRO...finish micro question followed by related pharmac questions...

ALL DIS HELPS to make associations..
5.finally u may have less time if u had som time wasted in the middle...no worries..the remaining part is easier and u have the confidence to do it faster too...
6. dont forget to THANK ME>>>>;-)
enjoy dude.

Info hey

yes u r right there's this bias that can happen but do {cvs+bloodvessels}...together...and yeah that can n does happen.but the purpose of uw is notjust to improve ur scores but its about learning the way questions are asked and deciphering the pattern of thinking plus whats more imp to do...etc...so save urself 10 days in the end to do random marked as well as wrong questions together...

or else doin entire FA f/b UW is also not a bad idea.
