Default 8 Months Sporadic, Now One Month to go!

Hi , am currently preparing for the step 1 exam. I've been studying sporadically for about 8 months.

I took an NBME twenty days ago and got a 181 which has made me postpone my exam!
After the NBME, I've revised whatever I felt are my weak points.

I plan to take the exam in exactly a month, so can someone please tell me how and what I need to study in this month.

Am done reading the Kaplan notes once and doing UWorld once.

What else do I need to do in order to get a score around 240.

Would really appreciate any advice I get . thanks!

Default Keep doing questions

I'd say that reading First Aid at this time is not a good idea because it may confuse.

Keep doing questions.

If you finished with UWorld then you might want to subscribe for a one month Kaplan Qbank.

While doing questions go back to your Kaplan Notes whenever you feel that there's something you haven't mastered.

What was you UWorld Score?

Do another NBME after two weeks of the above plan and see where you stand.
