Idea! Ideas for improving?

Hey folks!!

I am an IMG from Spain, currently studying for Step 1.

My main and only sources are FA + UWorld QBank. I rather be focused in few sources, thatīs why I am not reading Pathoma and so. I am in the last year of college and I usually get 4-5 hours of study per day. I have been studying since September and will take the exam on 5 May.

Yesterday I took NBME 15 and I got 232. Previously, three weeks ago, I got 235 at NBME 13.

Any suggestions how can I get up to 240+? There is enough time to go till my exam date.

Well pathoma is not a big nor difficult resorce. Idk how much will it affect you score, but i think you can include it.
My opinion is find your weakest areas and use extra material (other than First Aid) only on that subject.
Best of Luck!

I think that is a very good option.

Thank you, I really appreciate your feedback!

I think I will take your advice and add Pathoma as well as BRS Physiology
