Default Need some quick advice

Hi all. In my 2nd year but in a school that starts doing clinical rotations already. I wish I could have started studying from my first day in medical school. But first year combined two years of preclinicals. Made it very difficult to study for much else. Started casually studying since September. Almost finished with FA first pass, Goljan audio, and some questions. I want to take my test end of July with a target of 245. I hope with hard work, the right technique, and patience I can achieve it. With that being said, I have a few questions.

1) At this moment, I do not feel prepared or confident to take this test. I want to be feeling perfect when I take this test because I want a good score like everyone else. When should I register for a test date in July? Should I register even though RIGHT NOW I'm not feeling prepared but I may feel prepared by then? (hopefully)

2) I'm mainly using FA, goljan, and will eventually start using UWorld questions. What else should I study from? I considered Rapid Review but it's 600 pages!!! what about pathoma or BRS pathology? I'm going to use Micro made rid. easy for my micro revision. Lastly, when do you think I should start with UWorld questions? I've been doing practice questions just not Uworld yet.

3) Any other advice?
