Question Percentage of Questions NOT in UW or FA!

Hello,

If someone studies FA and UW perfectly and repeat them alot and memorize everything in them, and lets say there are 300 questions in the exam what is the percentage of these questions that will come from outside FA and UW together?

I studied all the books plus FA plus UW and I have one month to go, should I repeat only FA and UW multiple times, or should I read UW and FA once and repeat the other books like kaplan and BRS?


Thanks

about 25% which are super important if u really want to match to a program. if u just want to pass then u r good to go.

i must edit this. if u just study FA and Uworld, about 25% of qs will be out of its scope. so if u have time, u better revise the whole course.

let me tell u one more thing. u can give USMLE only once if u pass. so better target for a higher score than trying to be earlier. remember everything counts later, step 1 score counts first.

if u have one month, then go for FA and uworld without any doubt. coz its impossible to revise the whole kaplan so quickly. but if i were u i would check my score with nbme before deciding on the exam and yess thats what i will do InshaAllah.
