Default Last month of Step 1

Hey guys,

I'm going into my last month of Step 1 revision. I just wanted some advice about how to approach some of my weak points + other tips to try and get my score as close to 250 as possible.

I've gone over Kaplan QBank and I'm nearly through my second pass of UWorld. I was wondering it it would be worth buying Rx for a month to do the harder questions?

I did USWSA1 last week and got 254 and did USWSA2 and got 254 on the dot again. I feel like I've plateud in my questions too - getting around 83% on my second pass of Uworld (my first pass was 3-4 months ago and I missed a few sections out plus I can't directly remember the anwsers to most questions). I've attached my forms to the post.

NBME 12 I got 247 and NBME 13 242. I think at the moment I'm hovering around 240 as USWSA over predict by 10-20.

Considering my weak points, would it be worth going over goljan again or sticking to First aid? And for general principles which I've got consistently low in, would it be worth doing the first few chapters of goljan again?

Thanks!!

I think questions are the best way to learn and understand the material

Rx is cheap $99 for 6 months

I am taking my Step in February and plan on doing as many questions as possible

By the end of January I will have finished uWorld, Kaplan, and Rx banks and in February I plan on buying Truelearn (weapon) Bank

Reading will only get you so far, it's questions that will take you to the next level in terms of scoring

Thanks for the reply

Would you know if Truelearn is worth buying as there's not many reviews on the net?
