Unhappy :(

Hello everyone ,, Plz help as I m very confused , plz someone guide me back to the right path as I feel lost ..
My exam is on 12/31/2014
I read Kaplan books and Goljan
I don't remember one word of Goljan !! the same for Kaplan books ! I read first aid 1 time , ended up memorizing around 30% as I think !
I started with Kaplan Qbank and now I reached 55% with a cumulative score of 57 ..
I have 3 more months left ?
What Should I do ?
I don't have time to revise books or getting more into Kaplan Qbank unfortunately .. Plz I m very depressed , I just regret the time I spent reading all those books ending up with no time to revise them ..
Thank you very much

Start FA and finish it off within 15 to 25 days..and do Uword twice...and give atleast 3 revisions of FA...u can never retain kaplan...just be familiar with the concepts..

You are not new to this. We also have read the books you mentioned, USMLE is not about memorizing it is about "understanding".


Get U world subscription, give a quick review to FA, just to familiarize, add High yield into your brain. If you think you will forget add it into FA(latest edition).

3 months is enough if you utilize them properly. Go ahead you can do it.

you maay have the same problem as me...passive studying...you should UNDERSTAND every word from what you are studying, not memorize them...are you able to extend your eligibility period if needed?...
i have not tried Kaplan Qbank...but from now start studying by trying to understand..nobody is smarter than you and the difference with those getting high scores is understanding....good luck
