Show Teeth advice on study plan

Hello all

I love this site, and I appreciate all the advice and motivation ... I want to take the exam in the very near future. I have started kaplan physio and so far love Dr Fischer and Kudrath... not looking fwd to Dunn lol...Please look at the following study plan and comment...theres two blocks of study periods...part one is more knowledge sharpening and info gathering and part two is more exam conditioning, intense prep, and closer to exam. Im an img studying on and off, have covered a lot of material but had to travel, work, family etc... now I can dedicate 100% to study. Thanks in advance!

Physio: kaplan vids and notes
Path: pathoma and reference rr. (Ive done pathoma 3/4 times already)
Pharm: kaplan vids and notes. Fast review with lange flashcards
Biochem: pass program and rapid review biochem (missing some kaplan lectures)
Micro: kaplan vids and notes. Fast review with micro cards
Immuno: kaplan vid and notes
Neuro: hi yield, kap notes, made ridic simple
Anat/embryo/histo: fa and brs and netters

Qbank: I will use kaplan during this period in high yield mode only. Timed and random. 20-46 questions a day and then annotate in fa
FA: will be right there with me along my studies and questions (I have gone through this around 3/4 times already)
Assesments: after completion of each subject I will do the kaplan qbook exams and after all subjects will take nbme

DIT on 1.5 speed. FA QnA book right after
Pathoma on 1.7 speed. Corresponding with DIT chapter. Robins Path Questions right after
Quick daily bugs and drugs review of flashcards (at lunch and dinner)
2Blocks of uworld timed random everyday (AM and PM)
Weekly nbme
If time also add first aid cases before bed

Sorry this was long. A little more info... I plan to study starting as early as 6 am and no studying after 9 10pm. Half day on Friday to chill and relax.
