Listening Should all the time on DIT in its last week?

Hi guys,

Tomorrow will be my third week in studying for step 1. I take my test on June 16th. So, I'm stressing out trying to figure out what's best for the next week of study prep. For the past two weeks, I've done DIT and love it. I feel like I'm learning a lot, but the problem is I have also wanted to do at least 1 block of questions everyday and I just can't seem to find time to really learn everything from DIT for that day and do questions. UW takes me a while because I read over all answers and take some notes (about 3.5hrs/block).

I need some advice on the last week of DIT. Should I just devote this upcoming week to just DIT and make sure I know that material inside and out without doing questions? If I do questions and go over the answers, then I just don't have enough time to really learn it as well as I would like as I go along. I just started UW have only done about 30% it and was really wanting to go over it twice before my test (if that's realistic at this point).

My goal is to reach over 250 on my step :sorry:.
Stats so far:
-NBME 11 two weeks ago: predicted 217
-UW average timed random: 74%

so if this is your third week, and your exam is on june 16th... that means you are studying for only 7-8 weeks (2 months) and aiming for 250!?

wow, i should be asking for your advice, not the other way around lol.

Lol, this is my third week to be studying nothing but step material. I have been doing other studying for step, but while I was in school. Before these 3 weeks, I have listened to Goljan audio 3 times, and have done about 1500 practice questions from another Qbank.

Any advice though on focusing the rest of this week on just learning as much as possible from DIT vs. doing what I can in DIT with a block of UW/day?
