Question Uworld...Need your advises please

hello guys,

I need your advises regarding this:

my UWorld subscription ends by 29th of august. i will be able to finish it but without passing through my incorrect questions! i have took good notes though!

do i need to extend it for 1 week to pass through the incorrect questions?
or it will be enough to go through the notes i took & going through another qbank is a better idea??

my exam on 22nd of october!

Thank you

My personal advice is take a nbme now and see where u stand...incase if u dont hit ur target score.. then extend the uworld subscription until ur exam and first do the incorrect questions and the sections that u are weak...Then do it once again ...Doing it one time is definitely not enough for this exam according to me...doing it the second time improves ur reflexes...and reinforces the concept better....Since u still have 2 months under ur belt..i would definitely recommend you to do uworld atleast until 2 weeks before your exam...Last two weeks just do FA...

2 weeks for fa is too less...u should finish fa 3 to 4 times before the exam...uworld 1 time is ok only if u hv made good notes..I had my exam on 30th of july..it took me around 10 to 15 days to revise my uworld notes...I vil say extend your uworld for 1 more week...

So it will be better to extend for a week then I go through the notes for a week then do nbme to see where I stand, & to work on my weakness + reviewing fa & uworld notes!! What do u think?
