USMLEWorld UWorld Subscription; 6 Months or 2X3 Months

Hello everyone,

Need some help deciding what kind of subscription to get for uworld.

I am an IMG thinking of writing my exam in september. My plan is to do uworld once system wise first so that I can learn everything important about a perticular system from it and then do it again in Random/timed mode. Is this a good idea?

Also, if I were to do uworld as I outlined above, should I get the 6 months subs cription of 2 different 3 month subscriptions? I mean I would want to evaluate where I stand myself when I do it second time around in random/timed mode. What do you guys say?

I just realized, you can reset the 6 months subscription once. So that seems like the best option economically and academically.

why would you do the same qbank twice ?! i think of you use kaplan qbank for 3 month system-wise & uw for another 3 month Mixed you'll have a better exposure to twice the number of questions as you would get with uw alone.
this is just my opinion & the method I'm using.

No, dont get confused. I am just starting on my prep. If your prep is well on the way than you dont need more than 2 months of subscription. I did most of kaplan once and I am starting to do first aid now section after section. So I was thinking of doing to qbank this way cause I need to start doing questions immediately. I am from a low end Caribbean school and we are usually less prepared for step than a lot of you guys.
