Help I am forgetting what I read

hello everybody!!! i am kinda in a weird situation right now, i dont know if anyone has expericed this but i dont even know where i am right now for step 1... so far what i have done is anatomy, physology, biochem, micro, fron kaplan lecture note and videos and i am currently with pathoma.... and after that i am doing pharm and behavioral...

my plan is to get done by next month with everything and start doing FA and leave DIT videos for last month before my exam

currently i am doing UW questions everyday in the mornings (adding everything to FA) and studying pathoma in the afternoons, i have to admit i have a really shitty pathology base so i am taking my time with pathoma and hopefully be done by the end of this month.

what do you guys recomend for me todo.... should i take my nbme after my first read of FA or before? also i feel like i am taking forever its been 5 months since i started and like i said i have weak basic science so thats why i took my time with kaplan videos and LN... i am beginning to forget things... i notice this when i do my UW questions..

please any recommendations??

thanks in advance

I always say that if i give you an year to mug up every usmle book you encounter ...you will stand at the same position you are in right now no matter what you do .....

the key in knowing your progress is by doing questions .... your should be doing a different qbank as compared to UW right now as clearly you are not upto the mark to even attempt them ... only in your first pass of your review ...

grab kaplan or USMLERx qbank and solve them .... if you have enough time do them both ....

i see you are doing all alone .... try to find a study partner who is at the same position you are right now and do FA with him/her ....
