Warning! Uworld score fluctuation, Am i responding well ?

Hello guys,
2 months left for the exam now
I finished 50% of UWORLD with scores fluctuating from 43 % to 60%. It haS become very annoying to do all these exams and still get 45 % and so....so i stopped solving and am now reading the FA book once again cover-to-cover along with whatever i added uptill the moment in order to HOPEFULLY RAISE THE SCORE ABOVE 60% !!!!!

N.B: My low scores were mostly due to choosing the wrong answer although i was well aware of the correct diagnosis of the case..and propably could have raised the score from a 43 to a 58 in some of those exams !

Am i doing the correct thing here? I do need some one with experience please to help me out. It is getting very frustrating knowing i am still at a 45% level after all that preparation

Default Focus in understand concepts

Hi Hope!
I failed my step 1 first attempt in January with 186. I took it again on November 9th and I got 238. So, I think I could correct my mistake For my first attempt I worked with UW my % of correct answers at the end was 57. For my second attempt I review all Kaplan lectures (videos and notes) and I took notes on my FA, when I finished all that I started with the Qbank, a new one for me, this time only Kaplan. You need a 65% or above of correct answers on random and unused questions in order to be in a safe place to passing the exam. Focus in understand concepts and know how to rule out differential diagnosis.

Be carefull! That problem remembering seems "burn out". It is important to have a balance during this preparation, appropriate resting as well as exercise. A useful plan for you could be to select 3 subject which your score is the lowest and start studying them again with videos, books not only FA, at least a week per subject and then go back to the qbank.
