USMLEWorld UWorld Renewal or Buy it again?

Hi everyone,


Since I am planning to postpone my exam due lo low nbmes , I need an advice regarding what to do with the uworld. Should I renew it for a month and go through the incorrect answers or should I buy it again to do all the questions again. Please help...

I think you should go over incorrect and marked questions.

Do you mind posting your nbme scores? What's your target score? Also, have you attempted to answer any other qbank qs besides Uworld. Good luck with your prep.

If u r takn in 1 month u shud be hitting ur weak subjects, if you have not done nbme online do it and find out ur subjectwise weakness and study them, if u have done uworld random already then, do it in ur weak subjects, it wont harm ur performance if u do subjectwise now, u still can do nbme and uswa for random practice and score prediction, if u have problems in remembering facts than solving concept based questions, then choose those specific topics in uworld ie pharm, micro like tat, and do them. If u have rx qbank it will solve the fact based questions than uworld.

I have not done step 1 yet, so take it with a grain of salt.

All the best!!

I did uworld subject wise, never did in random mode. The answer for ur next question is I really donot know. Before nbme I was sure my weakness was answering straight questions than concept based , but now I should say I am not sure.

Have you watched the Behavioral science kaplan lectures? What topics in behavioral science do you specifically need to brush up on? biostats? epidemiology?

Cardiology: the kaplan cardiology videos are quite good. Also, FA seems to cover cardio quite nicely.

Not biostats, its the pscychiatry part in behavioral , yes I did kaplan videos but that was more than a year ago, I should go back n revise notes anyway.By Kaplan cardiology videos do u mean step 2 videos?
