Default Exam in 8 weeks, UW ended, Can I start Qmax now?

Hi guys ,
My exam is in 8 weeks and my uw will end 2nd time in a couple of days.
Its not online. I finished online one in June (78%)
But I feel I should do something to tease my nerves and timed mode stuff! I am planning to buy a month q max and do hard questions on timed mode!!!!
What do you suggest

What do you suggest
You should do both Qmax and Kaplan/Becker QBank (4 weeks each)
Qmax is too easy and it won't give you the feel of the exam.
If you really don't want any surprises during your exam do all the available NBMEs also.

There no HY or LY anymore.
Whatever is on your test is HY and everything else is LY.
Kaplan QBank helps to practice concepts which is what you will need on the test day.
Also, doing QBank(s) offline is a sure recipe for disaster.
