Help Enough is Enough?

hi eeryone. i know a lot has been discussed abt this topic already but i cudnt find any satisfactory answer. neeed some advice.
i have already gone thru KLN twice n goljan RR and done some UW questions here n there. but i really dont remember anything bcz i had alot of looong gaps in between. anyhow wat i want to knw is should i only do FA and UW now? i have not really noted much from kaplan into my FA but i have noted the new stuff frm UW and i plan to keep doing so. IS that ok? will i miss out on a lot of imp stuff if i dnt go through kaplan again?
Is it possible to get 230+ now if i only do FA and UW? this question might sound dumb but im reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy confused and need some advice.

kaplan should be in your mind, not necessarily annoted in your book
i say this because the point of kaplan is to build foundations, whereas UW and what not you should note done the exceptions and finer details.

if your base knowledge is good, then kaplan has served its purpose.

Hey numbndumb it really matters how was your medical school as many Question in the real exam r not found in kaplan ,FA or uworld .As they also check your basic knowledge .do NBME n always remember it goes both ways +or- 10 points depending on your basic knowledge from your med school .sadly i ended minus 10 to 15 from my NBME scores ,but its not always like that ,i was from very bad med school .but i worked hard and i ended up 215.
In short take an NBME ,to get an anticipation of your score .
Gluck to you
