Can you identify which subjects you are weak in? They might be the ones that are frequently overlooked (i.e. immuno). Going back to KLN/Uworld/Kaplan qbank/FA and paying special attention to them may make a difference. Good luck! You can do it...

If you are weak in the Ethics part of behavioural then I suggest doing Conrad Fisher's 100 cases you are most likely to see (Medical Ethics).. If you are week in the other areas then may be go back to Kaplan or BRS if you have time...

To be honest I am still in the process of studying.. So you should ask someone else who just finished the exam or are taking the exam soon..
But if you haven't already read the medical ethics then I will suggest you do that (it should only take u 2 days) and do the questions.. Some questions there are tricky but reading the book helps you answer them. And then see if your doing good/bad and try doing FA again. If you still have problems then ye you should go back to kaplan or BRS.
