Well today I'm reviewing the UWSA 1, along with FA.
So far my plan is to keep doing UW until I finished (have 8 blocks left), keep reading FA and doing NBMES.
How about you?????

Hey guys,

Your NBME & UWSA results look good and you still have time left so you can definitely improve in the next month!! GOOD LUCK!

My exam is end of august as well. Im taking my first NBME on Saturday probably. I did KLN earlier .. now doing UW & FA. Im done 30% of UW (700 questions)! Any advice on what else there is that I can do? Is goljan audio necessary?

I haven't done goljan audio, but I have the book wich I used to review a concept when was not to clear for me. Now I hardly use it.
I wouldn't say is not necessary, if you have time do it.
How is the UW going on for you guys??????

Its not going as good for me!

I did 700 questions and was averaging 45% but the last few blocks were higher average than when I started. So I stopped doing UW at 700 questions and reviewing FA (its my 3rd read). After FA im giving an NBME and then starting back on UW (hopefully my average improves!!)

You did good at stoping the questions and reviewing FA.
You will see improvement as soon as you start the questions.
Good luck.
