Planning Scored 247 in NBME; Still have two months of prep

Hi,
I have finished Kaplan lecture notes once. Finished USMLE world (timed tutor mode) with 70%, attempted NBME. score 610 (usmle equivalent 247).
Planning to take exam in June last week. what should be the next method of prep? by the way, I am an old IMG(>10 yrs), is the score good enough? i dont know the present trend. should i finish first aid first, then revise Kaplan? or read them side by side.
your comments are highly appreciated.
Regards.

Default doing good......

with only single read of kaplan,u have a good score.....

now since u have almost 2 months, u must give kaplan a second read and side by side, read that subject from FA.....

also practice MCQs side by side......

try to give all NBME's.....

u can easily cross 260.....best of luck.....!!!!!
