Default Looking for advice! from previous test taker

hey guys,
i'm american student; i have 5 months
but i am taking classes
my goal for class is to keep up and study earnestly just before exam... i am still shooting for good grades, but i've also become more critical about studying for boards.

so has anyone had this situation and can give me advice?
i have 5 months, and have the following materials:
kaplan ln + 2010 videos
first aid 2014
pathoma
goljian

i don't think it's practical to use all of these equally well so i am just focusing on FA and pathoma right now.

goljian is a dense book so i try my best with it, but it's hard with class.

i am also doing q banks- kaplan q bank, usmle rx, and usmle world

my plan was to finish 1 pass of F.A. + pathoma by march, and take NBME exams to see my performance.

any thoughts on that plan?

also, i have the kaplan stuff and i think it's really good but it's dense so i want to cover the weak subjects like anatomy right now...

I always tell my students tackle uworld first and make it ur no. 1 study material. To score high go in this sequence. Watch video of the respective subject (i.e. path endo) ? then study the material a review book quick ? then solve respective qs & study the explanations thoroughly
