Cool Weak areas in last month?

When people said to review the weak areas of the NBME to improve the score what do you use?

FA on that subject
more questions on that subject? UW? Rx? Kaplan? Becker?
textbooks on that area?
Kaplan lecture notes or videos?
Flashcards? Anki? firecrackers? Picmonic? Firstaid flashcards?
Doctors in training on that subject?

It's my last month before the step and my weak areas don't seem to improve by much? Need advice? pleaseeeee

Weak areas?
Anatomy
Musculoskeletal
Neuro
Physio

You have to identify WHY you are weak in this area. Did you forget factoid? - FA/ Anki best for you. You didn't get the concept? - Uworld, may be re-read 'big books' . May be you were tired? - Get rested.

I think I am forgetting things I already knew before. But I don't know how to approach it to improve it.....feeling hopeless and stressed.

Thanks for your response and for the advise.
