Question Trying to find time to read First Aid

For my study period I'm doing Kaplan, Pathoma, UWorld, and FA. I'm trying to memorize FA, but I'm having trouble finding time to read it. My schedule for the next 2 weeks is to wake up and read FA from the moment I finish breakfast till 3pm. After that, I start Kaplan. Do Kaplan for 2-3 hours. After this, doing Pathoma.

Thoughts?

I advise u to stop being negative, study as much as u can, no one can retain everything , keep studying until your exam date , if u felt ur self comfortable and u will get the score that u r aiming for go for the exam , if not, just post-pone it and continue studying as much as possible

Just stop being negative, u will not benefit from this , all what u get is lack of concentration and feeling depressed for nothing , be cool

try to read as much as possible as I said
concentrate on Endocrine as I heard it is heavily tested
leave micro and biochem last so u can cram them fast and still remember them
it is not the appropiate time to burn out just use every second in ur life right now , u shouldnt be on the internet either
and the most important be positive and have faith that God will give the best for u .. beleive in ur self and Best of luck.. u can do it
