Congrats with your score my friend !

it is a very decent score !

for which residency are you aiming for? (:

for IM/GYN/EM/PEDS 231 is a quite good score.
if you are thinking about surgery and more competitive specialties you have to do your best on other following exams and get some us clinical experience.

I did KLN , golijan RR( didnt help me much), FA and U world.. I felt that UW is the backbone of the preparation. A good notes should be written from it to revise it often.

UW should be done after reading the remaining ones. It might be difficult to do UW initially but you should gradually get accustomed to it to do 2 blocks per day with explanations. I hope the below link helps you.

My preparation was very discontinuous . I read all KLN and Golijan RR completely and gave a break for a long time and restarted with u world , finished it and had done a revision of the texts and i did uw again . Even i had done 2500 q from USMLE rx 2 mnths b4 the xm to improve myself in memory based questions.I read FA thrice meanwhile. My scores in NBME were really very low so i postponed my exam from jan 24th to mar 13th .

The exam is really doable with a good score but the thing is it needs understanding of the basics, good revision of FA and uw world notes.
