Default Need help with question bank selection

Hello! I have to take my step one in about 4 months. I am on first aid right now. I would like to start doing some questions every day so that I get the idea of what I am missing out on and what things to do. This will also help me familiarize myself with the way things are tested. What question banks should I do before I start u world? Thank you

You will need 4 months with Uworld itself so that you can do it 3 times. Don't waste time on other question banks. Treat Uworld like a textbook. Know everything in it. At the same time keep reading FA again and again and you should be able to get 240 easily.

Yea.
What I do is I create a test of 44 questions (i.e 1 block), timed, answer them and and then go back and review. For each question, I read the complete explanation, figure out why the other options are not the right answers and what change in the question could make them the right answers. I also read the same topic from FA even if I read it just a few hours back just to reinforce it.
