Default Pls Help: How LATE can I start UWORLD?

I am trying to finish reading things and do Rx/Qbank before I start uworld... but in that pursuit my test date is fast approaching...

I have pushed back starting uworld every week for the past two weeks. I feel unsure of what to do. I really want to do Rx/Qbank also.

The thing is I want to use uworld as a learning tool plus an assessment tool. And I am that kind of person who would get very discouraged if she get low score in uworld tests because they have known to be highly predictive. I want to start uworld when I have atleast some amount of hold with subject matter.

I am aiming to give exam in mid sept. and I can only push the date by losing money.

Please advice.

Thanks

If you are aiming for Big score and wanna give exam in mid sept then I'd say U might get a big loss by NOT starting UW NOW..!!!
Juss take it as a learning tool and If u wanna assess urself, do a block or two of USMLE Rx at the end of the day everyday..
But Really If you want to really ACE exam, You have to LEARN UWorld..

Thats all I can say...
rest depends on you...
take care..

If you're aiming to give the test in mid september and will do non-stop random UW blocks, you should start at the beginning of august, at the latest. That way you can cover UW in a month(@ around 2 blocks/day). You need time to go through your reading material again after you finish UW.
Also, unless you have some major time constraints, I'd strongly recommend that you don't truncate your preparation just to give the test at a given time. Take your time, follow your plan and postpone the test if necessary.

IMO start UWORLD asap...its a must...
dont worry when u score low on uworld blocks, take that as an learning tool
N for assessment go for NBME's or as said by one_destiny do some blocks from other qbanks or u can do them after ur done with uworld

all the best

Thanks @one_destiny @smanthrav and @anomali for your replies....

The reason why I cannot postpone beyond Sept. is a v. long story and if I have to end up postponing (which I will if I need to) then probably be a decision of heavy magnitude on many things... will try my best...

I will probably do what @smanthrav said as of now...

Thanks again...
