After studying for many many months (old graduate) I used UWorld for 2 months, barely finished it once cause I got sick in the middle of the period.

What I would do different is:
- start with books for a period of time (this varies greatly)
- start UWorld earlier
- subscribe for 3 months at least
- You may start with one test per day but quickly ramp it up to 2 or 3 so you complete the whole Qbank in 4 or 6 weeks.
- Then repeat it for the rest of the subscription.
Take notes along the way, be careful what you write or it will eat all your time, keep it brief and accessible.

I don't like FA, but turned out to be really useful during the exam, who would have guessed? Keep it with you at all times and read it over and over whenever you are away from your QBank.

Do exercise, eat healthy, take some time off for fun or venting.
And for the love of everything that is good in the universe, watch your sleep schedule and sleep away as much as needed.
