Default Can I go from 160 to passing in 3 months?!

I took an assessment and scored a 160. I am sitting for my exam in just over 90 days. Realistically, I need to pass and am very worried. I am questioning if I can do it or not.

My plan it just to go all out on First Aid, Uworld, and Pathoma for pathology. Maybe use sketchy micro for micro, because I have a very difficult time memorizing and retaining pharm and micro information.

Any advice and insight would be greatly appreciated!

The answer is yes/no as it depends...study usmle material throughout the whole day and you may even get a 230/240!

Start with pathoma for patho,clinical microbiology made ridiculously simple for micro and kaplan for anat,pharm,bioc,physio,beha,micro too...

goto this thread and request blueboy to make you a schedule he is good

Post Yes you can do it

You can definitely improve your test scores. If you are planning on going through first aid I will recommend using an online course to help you understand the concepts.

SmashUSMLE review program covers most topics in first Aid and can you bring your score from 160 to over 230. You can even create your own schedule on line.

you can try a free trial smashusmle.com

All the best.

Also other sources quoted by cleveFOX is highly recommended too.
