Help Need advice for step 1

Hello, I need some advice on something i was hoping you may have noticed while doing uworld prep. I have divided my queries into 3 topics:

do you remember there are those tough uworld questions that only 20-30% people get right? how relevant are they and how often do they appear on the step 1? because these questions seriously reduce my average on the uworld and i wonder if they are the same as the WTF questions that one comes across on the step. Also, these questions are the ones that are mostly NOT the most common things seen in clinical scenario so are they really going to be asked on step 1?

Do you have any notes or memory aids available for pharm and path that you can probably share? I have the medical mnemonics book going around the internet but i specifically need some way to memorize pharm and micro.

Exactly how to go about consolidating the info present in the uworld answers/questions into the first aid? I mean, it takes me almost 10 minutes to copy down all the info in just one question. Also, how much time to spend in this consolidation phase? (pardon the medical pun, i'm doing respiratory section right

I know i have asked a lot but honestly, I would be very grateful for any assistance possible. my exam is in late november and i really need all the help i can get.

Thank You
