Depends on you. When you're taking the exam and how many blocks a day you want to do.

For example: If you want to do 2 blocks a day expect around 23 days each for kaplan and uWorld.

USMLErx has a lot more questions but the explanations are relatively simple. So you may be able to finish that in a month.

I suggest 2 months for UWorld.

In retrospect, i'd say the Efficient way to review is 2 blocks a day (46 items each), but you don't have time to review the explanation comprehensively. if I do comprehensive review (comparing with notes, review associated topics), my rate was 10 questions/day initially, then 20, to 40/day. If you do the efficient way, you'll probably have time left form a second uworld review in 2 months so it's probably ok.

there are about 2200 q in uworld i.e approx 44 blocks
if u do 2 blocks/day u will need 22 days
each block will need approx 4 hrs
so its up to u if u can give 8 hrs daily for q bank
good luck
