If you could give us an idea about how far in your prep you are and how much time you have, you could get a better response.

With less than two months to go, I wouldn't start Kaplan Qbank. Concentrate on UW now.

pls postpone your exam for atleast 1 month,i think your concepts are weakmaybe you should do kaplan videos with pathoma/goljan audio.40% in uworld is poor

No. Please, don't waste any more of your UW until you have read your Lecture Notes again and got some of your concepts in place. I suggest go back to your notes. It's not a question of how much or how many times you do them. It's question of how well you understand. From your current score, I am sorry, you don't seem to be getting there.

Pausing UW is the wise choice.
Don't know if I can say same for going to FA when u r scoring 40%.
Good luck, you must know what's best for you.
