Thumbs Up Best of luck

Hi, friend
i would say give ur
first read to kaplan , u can supplement this with video if ur r a good listener esp for phy, pharm, neuroantomy, genetics and immunology, goljan audio for path

second time read FA with doing a qbank (kaplan i suggest subjectwise, timed)

third time give an nbme to see what u got and what more u have to work on

fourth start uworld ( all unused timed random ) with FA

fifth give nbme

sixth revise FA with uworld , WEBPATH ,goljan pictures as much as u can
seventh take ur EXAM

by the way this is all what i did and still doing so u can modify accordingly

take care, best of luck
