Smile Last Week of Studying

Hey all,

I am taking my test Saturday, and need some advice. Basically, if you could choose b/w trying to cover FA once more in four days, or just hitting your weakest areas, which would you do? That's what I'm having a hard time deciding between, and I know time is running out.

Basically, I planned on trying to do a second read of FA in this last week, but I keep scoring lowest in GI and renal, and have been for the last couple of weeks, so now I'm not sure which direction to go. I just don't know if I would actually retain anything by covering those 500+ pages in four days.

I have been prepping for 6 weeks, and have done only one read of FA, which was alongside DIT. I have also completed UW once (random, timed) and have done about 1500 questions from USMLERx.

Thanks a lot. :sorry:
