Default NBME 11 Assessment score.

Hey guys... as you can tell by the title, I did NBME 11 assessment today.

score: 560/235

Exam is in 4 weeks. I do plan to write another NBME(13) three weeks from now.

I'm looking for advice on what to do during these 4 weeks to improve my score.
My weaker areas were: "Immune System" and "Musculoskeletal, skin and connective tissue"

So any advice on how to effectively improve those areas is also welcome.

Sources used so far:
Kaplan Notes (2x)
Kaplan Video Lectures
Goljian Pathology Book. Goljian Pathology Audios for major organs.
DIT
First Aid (2x)
Usmle World Qbank notes I made while doing the Qbank

Hey, great score! I would suggest you watch Pathoma videos for musculoskeletal, skin although you can read Goljan again for the same topics because they're covered well. For immuno read FA again and watch kaplan videos if you have time. GL.

Btw, did DIT help? I am debating on whether I should use it or not. I've heard conflicting views.

Thanks for the advice; however, I do not have access to pathoma. What were your feelings about pathoma as whole? I might just end up watching kaplan immuno lecture again from dr. M.

As for DIT, i think its helpful... I think is helpful if you do it a month or so before the actual date you plan to write the exam (even though he suggests that the course should be done not to far away from the date) highlight important stuff he points out, and scribe additional notes that come along during the course... and then go through the first aid once more on your own.
I heard 2012 is much better than the previous two. I did the 2011 DIT.
