Planning 2nd Time UW along FA review in last month!

I'm in my last month of prep.
Finished UW yesterday with 72%.
Now I have to review FA and UW notes.
Is it a good idea to review FA and after each chapter do questions related to that chapter on UW for 2nd time?
I just feel weird doing only FA without doing questions every day.
I don't want to get bored on my last month of prep.

Default Try another qbank

I'm also done with uworld (67%), and left with 26 days for my step 1, I'm doing usmlerx this final month also (I did kaplan qbank before uworld), to keep doing questions, it is easier than uworld and it is a way to review your first aid in an active way, you should give it a try, there is a 20 question sample in their site(actually their are 16 questions, you`ll see why). If you haven't done kaplan qbank, you can give it a try also, it is more expensive than usmlerx, but their explanations are better, and their questions are tougher(I think some of them are kind of weird) and they give the page for first aid after each question. Try to do some nbmes or uwsa along the way too.

I did kaplan at the beggining of my studies (69%), like you said is weird,.
I just don't want to pay for USMLERX because I want to save the money to do 4 NBMES.
Thank you for your repply.
Good luck on your exam.
I guess I will read FA and UW notes and if I'm falling asleep I will do some UW questions.

How about gunner training? they have a 2 week free offer, I haven't use it myself but I've heard good things about it. I think redoing uworld questions is not a good idea, because you already know the answer, and if you don't remember it, you'll make the same mistake(personal experience).
