You can't make a study schedule without assessing where you stand.

You've done quite a bit of studying already so I would suggest you take an online NBME and depending on where you score, then go accordingly. Look at your weak areas, and where you can improve. Then look at what sources you have used already or what else you can include in your prep. Once you get all the resources down and know what you want to study, THEN make a study plan.

Also, don't stop doing questions! Sign up for an online qbank - may be Kaplan qbank for now and then online UW later on in your prep because your exam is still quite far.

Perhaps you should take an NBME this weekend.


PS. Ethically I decline your $100 offer

Not trying to sound like an a$$ but this might seem like I am -

Real Talk: Its YOUR study plan, YOU come up with it!

No point being lazy and asking people to make a study plan for you. Do the work and make a plan yourself because only YOU can assess yourself and make a plan. No one knows what resources you have, or how much time you want to put in every day etc etc. However, if you make a study plan for yourself, we will gladly help you on it and give you advice!


And if anything I can make a study plan based on what I think:

Mon-Sun = Study for 12 hours if you can
Subjects: whatever you want
Resources: whatever you have


(like I said, just sounds like I'm being an a$$ but its true! no offence tetradotoxin)

Ah well sorry I misunderstood

Just take an NBME and see where you stand before jumping into making a study plan.

And as for my day to day plan...you can check my threads. I write updates in it as well lol The thing is, anyone can make you a study plan but you will eventually end up making a lot of changes to it and you will constantly do that as you study. Add new stuff, take a day off, catch up days etc etc.
