Default Exam on 29th of may, Need advise on how to proceed

Hey everyone,

My exam is on the 29th of May, and I've been nerve-wrecking all the notes that I can manage. I want advice on what else should I do, or how to manage my time more properly. My stats:

UWorld-Stratified Analysis(taking only the timed/unused ones and getting an average): 77% Otherwise, its at 83%
UWSA1 - 257
NBME 15 - 252 (I was planning for a 260+ though )

How good is my performance?

On a side note: NBME 15 is tough as hell, but I made some really silly mistakes(messed up Gram+ and Gram- ), so I think my score would have been higher if I hadn't lost my confidence in the middle and started screwing things up.

So far, I've reviewed FA and all the UWorld notes. Is Goljan Path review notes(the 36 page one) worth going through? And is it a good idea to review FA again (its soooo boring to revise it now. Especially it pisses u off once u dont remember the things!), or just the UW notes? Also, is doing another NBME worthwhile?

I also have the UWSA2 that I havent used, but I am planning to take it after 2-3 days.

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

you're in really good shape. no sweat. if you're bored of fa, just save one good review for the last couple of days before your exam. i dont think you need another nbme...but if you'd like, you can do a full length simulation, take one nbme and your uwsa 2 on the same day like the exam. this should be enough i think. good luck! be confident!
