Listening Exam in 1.5 months, plz help

I have read FA 1.5 times, some topics many more times. Uworld finished once , with average 50-55% , did nbme 12 2 days back, got a very low score (188 when equated to 3digit score) . Took nbme 6 earlier 10 days back, got like 165 :/ Improved a bit on nbme 12 from there, but please guide me on how to proceed from here on.

I was in the same boat. Kaplan is a good source if you want to learn, understand and have at least 6 months free time on your hand. I took 3 months off work to prepare and 2 weeks ago learnt of DIT. My exam is next month and this made a huge difference in a mere 3 wk period. My conclusion after my friends aced this exam( all imgs working and studying)..was to know FA inside out! I read it over 2 times and recalled almost nothing. Get the DIT and use this ....you have a lot of time still...I wish I did...it will absolutely send your scores up. Don't give up, keep your eye on the prize..and start DIT ASAP!
