Warning! Need LIFE ALTERING STUDY ADVICE!

Okay here is my story, I graduated a year ago from a foreign country, I am a US-IMG. I have been preparing for a year, I have done my first revision of everything and took the Kaplan live lectures in Los Angeles. I took the Kaplan Diagnostic exam and scored only 27% correct. I was originally planning on taking the exam in February. But now I don't think thats a wise choice. I Am thinking end of April or May now.
I own, But haven't read first aid yet. I have Kaplan QBANK which ends in February which I haven't used.

What should I do? Should I go over all the subjects again via the Kaplan lecture notes? Or should I just jump into First aid and Qbanks.

I am scoring so low I dont know what to do.

jumpin to first aid at this point wont be wise. go over kaplan once again with full concentration . try to grab the concepts. first aid is just like a collection of imp points.it cant help if u dont have a strong concept. and jumpin to qbanks before makin a strong knowledge base would lower your morale . so i would suggest you to go over kaplan again . kaplan helps makin a strong base ! good luck
