Am badly messed up with my final revision
I jump from one thing to another and confused what to do

Kindly help me out what to do in such critical time my brain has burnt out
I will wait for your useful responses ...!!!

Please try to calm down!!! That's the most important thing at this point, or else it'll just frazzle your brain and keep you form accomplishing anything. Where are you in your studying? Are you doing UW? Reading FA? Provide some details and folks may be able to help. Good luck!

Just a warning- NBME 5 is brutal...the hardest I've done so far. 6 and above are supposed to be better and closer to the real thing.

STOP USING UW OFFLINE

Start with online UW as soon as possible.
I did NBME 3 wich according to the forum is on the top of best NBMES.
I will also do 7, 6, 11. According to the forum are the best ones.
