Question What after doing the first time??

Hello

I am an IMG, My exam is after 3 months and I am done the first reading of everything.

BUT

I remember nothing about Microbiology (MRS studied) Nor Pharmacology (Kaplan) Nor Pathology (BRS) ( even though I've read them from cover to cover once) ((DID THEM AT THE BEGINNING LONG TIME AGO ))

I didn't do First aid yet and I have nightmares during solving Uworld.

What shall I do?

A) repeat MRS , pharma kaplan , and patho BRS?? then 1st aid then questions?
B) do 1st aid and questions immediately?

and after doing the whole 1st aid?? , shall I go back to kaplans and Brss?? or do 1st aid again and again??

Help please I'm bit confused

Thanks

Default hi

hi, i might not be the best person to give advice but i will try.
i finished FA last month, and then i was in your shoes, didnt know what to do, didnt have any other books anyway. so i did nbme form 6. that woke me up. it made me realise that solving questions is a good way to go about 'fixing' what you have read in your brain. it might be depressing when you cant answer the questions but i think its worth it.
si i will say my 2 cents worth of advice and say start questions and you may begin FA or a second read, i have no opinion on that. but i think you should start questions

U can try qbank timed but subjectwise after finishing each subject.
It'll fixate facts which are imp In ur long term memory. Which is needed for exam.
Try all sub like this give nbme and then see score and come back I'm sure there will be improvement but. If u score below what u want try to do a second read of all notes and qbank.
Hope it helps.

Thanks.
But I've finished all the subjects already
I just remember nothing of the ones I began with
Shall I repeat the notes or just go on with FA?

This is my question

Normally people do it two times but depends if u feel like u can do it in just1 read and getting a good idea and good marks in qbanks just do first aid and ur notes
Most of amg's just do first aid. And qbanks
