Wow 50pgs/day that's a lot! Well for me at least you must be pretty comfortable with the material to be zooming thru 50/day! Keep up the good work.

Hi guys...well i tried hard but finished only 40 pages...
Guess you guys are right...50 pages are too much.
The DIT guy said one can do 50 pages...but it is too exhausting before the exam ...atleast for me.
May be 25 is a better number and questions half day...keeps the interest and breaks monotony ?
will try that today !
Keep studying and helping.

drdj @ 4 blocks of kaplan seem very tough..you will take about 4 hours just to solve those 4 blocks....then review and FA 20 pages do take time...may be 3-4 hours depending on how many times you have done it before. Be realistic and plan well. If you just read the explanation without reading the other wrong options...may be...but it is still a very very superhuman task
My 2 cents !!

Hey, i did it in 6 days, but it was my second time, so i watched it at 1.5x speed! I would totally recommend it. It helps to solidify your path, with help in physiology too!

Good luck

Well, if you only have one more NBME available, you could postpone it a week (trying to do it 2 weeks before your test). That way you could work hard on your weaknesses and kill the test. Keep it up!

My exam is on Feb 21st. Only 20days left. Now I mainly read FA, about 50 pages a day, and 50 to 100 questions from UW for the second time.Also I think I should do one more NBME but haven't decided when to do it yet. Any suggestions? hope I can get a good score

Hi ...my exam is also on 28th feb....doing UWORLD 2nd time...but cant get thru more than 1 block a day and not having enough time to do FA as planned .

@DIT is good if you cant get thru FA by your self !
I did 3 lectures...then realised i could read faster and cover more in 1 day than with lectures....so i stopped but if you have the time you can go ahead...but 1 month before exam i think one needs to read faster ....which i am trying now
good luck for today !!
CARPE DIEM !!

I did UWSA 1 two days ago and I got 263. 20-? Are you sure? That scares me.UWSA1 test my week area, many molecular questions. I need some confidence.
Only two weeks left, I think i need a full length exam

Is this your first time doing UWorld on random, timed mode? If yes, then you should have been able to get atleast 510+ on NBME.

Now I am read FA , kaplan q book(old) , some old UW qs and NBME reviews.

I'm done with my exam. This is very hard time after exam absolutely no feeling of relax all qs just flushing in my head.

What I recommend yu . Stay focus - read disease- make list - disease (a/b, hormone level, cells active not active ).
Don't be lost in this info. when study drugs group them in same SE .
Read all formulas and graphs - kidneys , heart, biostatisctics. Look anatomy and neuroanatomy in kaplan book and nbme.
On exam Yu must be able to recall info even yu feel stress.
It why now you maximally clarify important points.
You can do it!
