Here's what to do.

1. Read First Aid and do USMLE Rx qbank. This qbank reinforces you what you have read in First Aid.
2. UW over and over. Use it as a learning tool. Take notes too from UW.
3. Do NMBE 6, 7, 11, 12, and 13. You can download them as well and use as a learning tool.
4. I can't stress enough but you need to do massive amout of questions. I don't care where. But you need to. We all need to.

Good Luck!
