Help Is this plan feasible for the last month and a half?

In order to complete my goals and take my exam in the end of August, this is what I have to accomplish EVERYDAY:

2-3 UWORLD Question blocks (almost to my 2nd time around)
+
Approximately 25 pages out of FA
+
10 PharmCards

Do you guys think this is do-able?

I would love some feed back before I schedule my test

I want to get through FA, how much ever I can, and finish up one round of Uworld first before taking an NBME. So far I have glanced through my notes and about half of FA for the first time. I just wanted to make sure I was recreating how prepared I'd be before taking a test for real. Is that ok? or would you suggest going ahead now. I still have 900 unused questions from Uworld. Thats also why I was hesitant on taking an NBME.

Btw, I have two Uworld SA's should I just go ahead and take one, or stick to my original plan where I was planning on taking it in a week after a decent dig on FA.

You can do FA=>UWROLD 50%=>NBME=>UWORLD 20%=>UWROLDselfassesment1=>UWORLD30%=>OLD NBMES=>UWORLDselassement 2=>NEW NBME=>EXAM.
However, there's no standart way to apporoach this exam.You should make your own strategy how to get high USMLE score.We cannot help you, for some people 10h of sleep migh be more efficient than reading FA for 4hours.
You should chose your OWN way.YOU should know yourself better than some random guy on the internet.
When you'll understand that best fits you preparation strategy you'll rock USMLE.

yeah i think i'll just go ahead and take it, just so I can focus my studying better after I have a decent evaluation.

Do you know what the extended evaluation is vs standard. It is 10 dollars more for the "expanded feedback"

Default so i took the NBME form 7...

got a 470/214

Super weak in Neuro and Resp I guess? I looked through pulmonology in FA and it seems as though I have a pretty damn good grasp of it, maybe the questions on the NBME were just tricky?

Getting through FA is HORRIBLE. I don't know how to do it, DIT is too slow and seems as if its a waste of time, however when I go through FA alone, I dont know how much I am retaining. Any tips on getting through FA at all?
