Does UWSA follow the same question format/ type as UW?

And for behavioral - try reading the BRS one time. It def. helps!! or Just go over the questions and their explanations at the end of every chapter of BRS and its just as good as reading the book! lol

Thats a great score..
Yeah i would suggest you to go thru BRS behavorial science..its really interesting and easily digestible..
For neurology..kaplan is good but going through FA definitely helps to integrate all the stuff.
All the best..You are going to rock the exam..

FA is great but it would not be so much help in behavioral science for u. but definitely it's good in other aspects.

Idea!

WoW! thats an awesome score, and that too without the FA. I have similar problems with behavioral but no time for BRS though have heard a lot about it. Neuro Id say try doing FA, itl definitely help. My read of the FA is, that if you can put in enough stuff into the Fa and then stick to it as your last source during the last few weeks it'l definitely help. I think you should consider giving it a shot, its hard to get the hang of it initially though!
I've personally come up by approx a point every day of reading it over the past 3 weeks or so, and im a very procrastinatey type lazzy course/review book reader....Go for it bebix, you can truely aim for a much higher score in 30 days!
And give the nbmes, start now, coz uwsa2 over predicts, and uwsa1 i think varies from person to person...
