Thank you Aliya,

There are different approaches to preparation based on the individual preferences. One option could be: 1- Kaplan lecture notes 2- First Aide 3- USMLE World Qbank

Best of luck for you!!

Thanks. Among the common resources available, UWorld and NBME are the closest to the real exam. But real exam looks harder :-)

Thank you. I would focus on doing Uworld qbank and sometimes looking at First aide. Anatomy was different from the common resources( Kap., FA..), so you may want to use a nice text book. But I think it would be best to stick with the resources that you have been using so far, and not jumping into new unfamiliar books at this time.

Best

Thanks

Congrats . You murdered your test.
did you do UWorld and if so would you recommend doing sets of random questions or block specific questions . I have 2 months before i take my test.
