Help Last Four Days Before the Test!

All right guys! my last question about step 1 hopefully

So my exam is on Tuesday 10th of July which means that i have 4 potential studying days.
What would you guys recommend on doing on these last days, i have done NBME's finished the Qbanks i am mainly going over the wrong answers, i have also revised the FA very slowly about 70-80 pages per day - finished today.
Whats next i thought about doing even a faster revise of FA 130 pages per day for the remaining days, and 150 free questions on the last day.

What else?

Smile since it is only 4 days

i think that the fastest way to finish FA is a maximum of 6 pages per hour
meaning a maximum of 72 pages per day, faster than this rate will be scanning which is no good for retaining and consolidating info

so the other solution is selective revision....

1. equations
2. graphs and tables
3. 15 pages of Rapid Review FA
4. all pharma pages in FA around 60 pages excluding pharma section


if after all these u have time, then u might go though wrong questions in qbank

good luck mate

Exam in 2 Days! i feel so lost , feeling like material is escaping from my mind - feel like i dont remember anything. i really hope that the score doesnt depend on the things that you study during the last 2 days (i mean the last punch of the score).
Gonna do FA Rapid review, Go over renal and neurology aswell and child development - omg what a damn topic - so much information is needed there.

Gonna go over some Equations that i have prepared ahead.
on the last day probably gonna do the last 150 free questions.
Gonna cut studying around 16:00.

Thanks for you replies and Wish you good luck!

Wish me luck

Juss one suggestion..

I recommend you to cut down your studies at 13:00 or 14:00..
because right now after seeing your condition ..looks like you've got this..
juss dont worry now..
Relax on that day and, most important thing...
Dont forget to remember god even if you are an atheist...

Just pray for the courage and calmness...

You've got this buddy...

take care..
have fun..

2nd thought 1 day before dont do rapid review, it's about buzz words and really makes you more confused, questions in the exam are not asked in that way.
