Help feeling nervous~~~ exam in 47 days!

hi friends!

i know i have always tried to motivate other people, but tats what they say.. when it gets to you, you come to know the real essence.. I feel terrible and so nervous now.
I've booked the date on August 14th and its terrible now!

Till now I've just done kaplan videos and notes (may be once or twice)
for questions, i just did kaplan bank, but i think thats not so useful. now, i plan to revise whatever i can in next one week and then book USMLE WORLD. do u think its a good idea? I know without Qbanks you can never even pass this test. but am scared..

did anyone else have the same feeling? OMG!! do you think i should start USMEL right away? or wait till i finish one revision and FA. this is my plan, but any better advice??

Thumbs Up don't worry

you have a great plan and 47 days is still quite a time to perform wonders. start uworld right away and refer to FA for most of the answers. this way when you finally review FA it will take a shorter time and make more sense. you never mentioned nbmes .do one and know your stand...wish u the best.

Can I be a little selfish to take your time. Please guide me about how to manage my time? Keeping in note that I need to work for almost at Least five hours a day.
I'll be highly obliged if you could help me manage the time.

I've scheduled my exam on 6th of August, so were're in similar situation Start UW immediatly, it takes a lot of time to revise it. Also you should do at least one NBME as soon as possible, if not for another reason then just to decrease the fear of unknown Go for it!

Hi drdhruv.. I wud advise u not to revise from KLN as u hv already read dem twice.. Dey r for building basics which u must hv done by now.. No matter how many times u read dem u'll never retain everything.. Now is d time to learn to apply those basics to ques and nothing does it better Dan UWorld.. So start UWorld right away cuz in my opinion u shud revise at least ur wrong and marked q from UW before exam.. Reading FA at least 3 times is equally imp... Take a nbme to see where u stand so dat u kno what r ur weak areas n pay more attention to dat... Doing q will tell u which topics r high yield n also make u learn facts..

tbh i am not the best person to advice you but this is how i would have planned it, fa systemwise and review two systems daily, not only one or review one system + one subject like biochem microbio immuno genetics etc... you need to find the best plan for yourself by yourself, what chapters you are weak in , spend more time... i have 5 months left and this is how i plan to spend the last two months(with UW too)
