Mine is in 5 days too - 23rd April!

I can totally understand how you feel. At this point, I'm trying to cram in whatever I can... last chance to stuff it in right?

Sigh. Okay, so I'm doing FA, relevant Kaplan path and basically all the other subjects, one after the other, as much as I can, properly from Kaplan, otherwise from my annotated FA. I should be doing FA more but it with some topics, like physiology, I had to go back and read again.

Looking at pics, keeping my list of forgettable topics at hand. Trying not to freak out.

And the only questions I want to do now are the NBME 15 I'm taking on Friday morning. Seems like a waste of time to do any more than that when I need to build up my short-term recall.

Btw, have you taken NBME 15? I saw on another thread you'd said you'd take it. How is it?

I did NBME 15 today too and totally agree with you - I made silly mistakes too... about 6 avoidable mistakes definitely. But I'm happy... can't wait to be over with this... yayyyy! Good luck!
