how many times did you go through FA and UW?
how did you feel when you were taking the NBME? was it like you knew you had read it before, somewhere and you couldn't recall it?
or it was all new and sounded really unfamiliar to you?

i did kaplan long back initially ..but have been doin first aid and uworld for a few months now .. i had taken an nbme (form 6 ) on may 1st and got 340 . had gotten depressed and took a break in may and started studyin again in june ...

have finished u world twice (first time i was gettin around 50% . second time around was gettin in the 70's )

i've read fa a bunch of time .. more than 5 times . but since the break in may have read it twice

umm when i was doin the nbme . like most of the questions which i was unsure of i felt like i've read t before and couldnt recall it but some of the questions the info felt new ....hence also worried whther fa and uworld r enuf

not sure exactly how to go about it . if u do know or have ny advice it'll be really helpful

if i were you i would go through the latest NBME you have done and study the Q&A well. see where the problem is, if you have no idea about that special concept then you need to work on building knowledge up through Kaplan or other books but if its mostly because of silly mistakes you have made, or forgetting stuff, then you need to review more accurate. anyway relax and take your time to study better then do nbme again. just stop getting break for more than a day.
good luck

Thumbs Up FA 5 times

You must be a fast reader..but what you should do is more of grinding and absorbing the concepts. You should take your time..do not rush..try and understand what each concept entails. Finish and revise uworld then integrate with FA.. Do all nbmes too. All the best
