Arrow Here's what you should do

Yes, most of the topics are tested in USMLE World but if your primary reading is not good enough then you need to review your Kaplan and/or FA again.

I suggest you do this.

Start doing USMLE World and if you find yourself answering more than 55% correct then keep doing the questions until the exam day. If not then you need to go back to your materials.

Hey, don't take it very lightly my friend, no need to offend anyone but the best predictor is the nbme. When I started I had 65% UW and the nbme showed 440, and this was a big slap in my face because i thought i was the king with a 65% in world, but it is not enough unless you do the official nbme...

Kind regards
