glad to see you all here.i know its the time for us to rapid revisions but lets share our views here and aim for 99. and you know i have got 2 months too.My story is, i just subscribed UW again for these 2 months,did once already.this month i want to know where do i stand by giving a self assessment test and also i am pretty frustated regarding adding notes to the FA.as u see for eg.,micro UW explanations has points that are already in Kpln notes but not in FA and vice versa.now i am looking at 2 books thinking whether to add or not. the concepts which i dont know i add.
@yasir @docsikorski have you guys given any NBME already?i am thinking which one shld i give first as also have UWSA 1&2 in my account.

Hey. My xam is also 2mo away. I jus finished my uw. Random untimed mode. Right now i am going thru the wrong questions. And once i am done, i plan to do it subject wise. To the extent that i endup memorizing the scenarios. Thats an advice from a friend of mine who score 99. And then by oct15 i will take uwsa1 and then weekly an nbme to asses my progress. I hav annotated all of uworld on my fa. Also i made additions from kaplan micro, biochem n pharma in my fa. N previously i hav listened to goljan lectures twice! right now i am freaking out. because i am not sure if i m doing enough to get a perfect score. My 1st round of uw avg low. Cuz it was my first qbank. I hav a question, is it advisable to do kaplan qbank? I hav read ppl on this forum saying we shud atleast do it for physio and behav sciences. Whatdo u guys hav to say??! Any suggestions??
