Did you try Kaplan Q-bank - mine was the same after reviewing UW two times, so I have decided to go through Kaplan Q-bank - 32 days left...

I don't know yet, just finishing today after couple days I'll try NBME 12 - since that I took 7, 13, 15 all between 217-228 , the point = I came cross the same concept questions in Kaplan Q bank. For me NBME looks closer to Kaplan then UW. I Don't know the people who took the Exam, say Kaplan is useless, nothing like questions from UW or NBME - I don't have any other available Q-banks left ....

Thank you very much Veronica, but I could afford 55$ per hour x 8 hour per day = x 30 = 13.200 $ per months = I wouldn't apply for US Residency, here we're all poor foreign doctors, most of us roughly work about 800-1000$ salary per month. Are you yourself in Residency now?

I absolutely agree - teachers should be rewarded, I would love if somebody can teach me, but in my current conditions - I'm barely finding 60$ to do NBME's ...255 $ per hour for me like knowing all 32 or 33 steps of de-novo Cholesterol synthesis by heart....

do uworld one more time.
do nbme questions that you missed; look them up. look at the graph for your performance and see where it is low or borderline and work on those subjects.
do not walk into this exam until you get a 240+ on ur nbme.
220-230 is good on nbme. you have enough time to improve. just work hard. 10-12 hours a day. stay at it !

If you have two month time left then do it - about 2 weeks enough to go through, Kaplan Q-bank is actually harder Q-bank then UW - especially on Genetics, Neuroanatomy, Farm. calculations, Acid-Base Disturbances, HIV - questions. I did it twice, first route was 65% - second route about after 4 month 80% - I don't know I always felt that Kaplan is tougher Q-bank, in general single disadvantage- Kaplan Explanations are not good as UW - explanation. Not yet taken the test too, so I can;t tell how much - close to real Exam. People say useless. Nowadays, they're even saying question no more like UW, Kaplan, or NBME.....
