do physiology, pharmacology, and biochem from kaplan again and use FA for everything else.

For a first read it a good score...If u are going to take the exam in october...you still have time to improve it.

Did you get any feedback like how many questions u got wrong ?

and have u done UWorld and FA yet?

yes i have 30% of uw left
FA i have done once already
nbme 5 does not come with extended feedback so i dont know how many questions i got wrong.
what should i be concentrating on....FA+UW or go back to kaplan (i really dont want to go back to kaplan) but if i have to i will.

I would say first finish UWorld and then start it again with FA only for the wrong questions..But finish it at least a month before your exam...and then see take another form , may be 7 this time...see if you improve.

May be you will consider doing DIT with FA as well...People have reported going up 10 to 20 points just by doing FA.

And yes you can always go back to Kaplan if you want to confirm or reread something.

Listening to Goljan Audio or UWorld notes might also help.
