If you don't mention what you have done so far and what progress you made we can't really give you an adequate advice.

Also, I recommend you read here

ok thanks, this is a good advice...
so about nbme i took 1 last month and scored 177, what a shocker. and i took one yesterday and got 189. so there has been 12 digit difference
what should i do?
my aim is to get 250, well that was the plan but i will be very happy on 235-240
or even 230 but it seems like i am not in a position to get 221 at the moment either.
i am going to work very hard and see my score by the end of 15 days.. i am going to focus on my weak areas only!
any suggestions ???????i have 2 months!
