Planning Exam in 2 months, study plan

Exam in 30th of July, Study plan for the next 2 months! please i would like to hear any additions or advises,

Where am i standing now? I finished Kaplan qBank today got 71% random, Did 1 fully simulated exam of kaplan - 78% about 1 months ago.

June 5th-15th - Finishing revising organ systems (this will complete my first pass over the whole material) + going over the wrong answers and "my questions" in Kaplan qBank
June 16th - NBME Form 7
June 17th - july 3th - 2 pass over the material + UW 1.5 block each day
July 4th Kaplan fully simulated exam number 2
July 5th-19th - DIT + UW 1.5 block each day
July 20th NBME form 13
July 21th - 28th Revise FA fully + Finish UW + full revise over mistakes.
July 29th Drug Holiday!

Should i add any other Nbme's? or do others? should i add uw diagnostic exams?

With regards.

qbank is my weak area here .. I recently started it and I see most of u have alreday done with it once I did revise all the subjects except pathology Im willing to start goljan in the few coming days... DIT in about 20 days from now ... If you are planning to do it maybe we can start it together ! again, as long as I started uwarld recently I feel I know nothing .. that's why I feel Im behind I wish I did that earlier

Modesty ur plan is very good .. its somehow like mine .. except U did kaplan qbank before and I did not ... good luck this is perfect

and yeah ... Im willing to take NBME 13 and 7 one after Im done with Goljan and one after DIT hopefully ... and that will determind if Ill stick to july 30th or not " hopfully all of us do "

Good luck again

Ok, so we all r planning to take inbme's 13 n 7. yes, i suggest u do start UW asap. do a block or 2 everyday n then study goljan in the remaining time. I watched abt 75% of DIT videos once about 2 mnths ago(thats when i took a long study break for some unevitable reasons). i cudnt study at all so i thot id watch a video a day. lol. yeah i think DIT is quite helpful but its really really time consuming. n i didnt do it with that workbook either .. so im nt sure if il b doing it again.
My whole plan depends on how I do in my first nbme though .. then i'l really know whr i stand.. hehe
I think u should also take ur first NBME in within the next 20 days or so right?

So i have started UW today about a week earlier then planned, did the first block. it's really different from the kaplan, the interface and also the question distribution, also the questions seem to be less how to say convoluted. I am still thinking about which NBME's actually to take and if the do the fully sitmulated kaplan exam or not.

Any advises?
