Cool EXAM in 4 weeks- What Q bank to do again?

Hey friends,

I did UW while reviewing kaplan videos and FA - 60%. I spend last two weeks redoing all my wrong questions.

I did a UW assesment and my 3 score was - 196 ( I could have hit 200 if I wasnt so silly and lazy during the test)


I have roughly 5 weeks and I plan to do DIT with First aid , nbME 7-13 ( 1 every week)

I want a Q bank - My friends suggested Uworld is enough and that I should keep reviewing it.

Another suggested Kaplan Q bank. - He also said its very minutia details...

HELP ME - I cant seem to make a choice. Should I just continue re doing uworld again or get kaplan instead?

i would focus on Uworld. try to do it again if you can. but dont spend too much time reviewing questions. just look for patterns i.e the kinds of questions you get wrong so you can figure out if its a concept problem or a memorization problem. and work on that

DO dit. helps to retail the easy points that may show up on the steps.

and just keep reviewing FA. and make sure you take not to what the NBME wants you to improve on. Pay the extra 10$ to get the feedback.

I woudlnt do a second qbank at this point. i dont think you need it. just keep working.

good luck.

I agree with mdsoon.


Know uworld in and out and finishing DIT will def increase your score.

Go for the Kaplan Qbank and focus on your weak areas.

THANKS guys. After much thought, I decided to stick with UW and get it inside out. I really dont think minutia details of kaplan will help me last minute.
