Smile U.W qbank 64%...wat to do next... ?

hi guys
i really hope for some advice here as i have no one i know who could advice me on this. i am an IMG.
i am almost done with uworld qbank with about 64% aggregate. i did the entire uworld on timed-random mode. wat to do next...? should i go for nbme...? or else should i revise once everything before going for nbmes...?
by the way i only have 2 months left from my exam date...
i have already done multiple revisions of all the subjects and my only problem i figured is in cracking the vignette in question n recollecting the specific minute details.... really praying for some one to advice me...
thank u in advance by the way....

I think, now is a good time for NBME.
Then from ur nbme results - you will figure out ur weaknesses.
You seem to have plenty time to do ur incorrect ones again from UW if you have not allready done so and see which ones u get wrong again and that identifies ur weaknesses also.

Hey, I am not sure about the order....
Give nbme 7 a shot, everyone says it is a very good predictor.
Might wana save the newer ones like 13 and 15 closer to ur exam date.

Agreed with tai35 that an NBME is in order... From here, determine where your biggest weaknesses come from (via NBME and UW) and go back and re-read textbooks wherever you are falling short.

Once you've improved on the weaknesses, you should re-try the UW questions you got incorrect the first time around in order to determine whether you have a better grasp.

After improving your weaknesses, do another NBME to see for sure whether you've improved, and then simply re-evaluate to see where/if there are still some gaps in your knowledge. Don't write your exam until you are confident that you have no weaknesses, which will ensure your highest score.

Good luck.
