I would say purchase the Uworld qbank online, because using that you can do timed blocks of random questions, which is what you really need right now. Practice to help you do 46 questions in an hour. Offline uworld will not help you with that.

Apart from that, you're on the right track i feel. Just keep reading up KLN or FA as you do uworld, especially on topics you feel inadequate in, etc.

Since you are trying to give this exam on April or May, try to do these:


1. Do UW entirely and keep doing it.

2. Do Usmle rx qbank. This qbank reinforces you on what you read/understand FIRST AID.

3. Do MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF QUESTIONS. This will help you a lot.

4. NBMES - Do form 6, 7, 11, 12, and 13.

5. Pretest questions.

6.Do free 150 NBME questions as well.


See if this helps!!!!!!
