Planning DIT + FA + UW...enough?

Hello Guys,

I've done one reading of Kaplan Lecture Notes awhile ago and I don't remember much. I feel that no matter how much time I spend on Kaplan I seem to forget most of it by the time I finish my last book!
My question is; If I do DIT, FA, UW, and Goljan Lectures, is that enough?

Please respond as am so exhausted from studying

While it may be enough for some, it won't be enough for others. Evaluate how your basic science curriculum was (Great, good, bad, horrible) then determine where you fell on in terms of class rank (best student to failed a few classes).

Don't short change yourself.

I will say ,after doing what u r planning to do (ie. Dit + fa+ uw), just give an NBME and see if u can achieve ur desired score or not and then plan accordingly......u will get to know ur weak areas and then u can strengthen them by going thru respective subjects.....simple.....!!
