Dont waste your time on videos when you have only 6 weeks left. Do FA and look up relevant topics from Kaplan lecture notes where you are weak.

you have to hit FA hard...reading it once isnt going to get it done. For physio, a combination of Uworld and FA should be more than enough. If you are weak on concepts in physio, you could go back and refer in the Kaplan lecture notes. I still do that from time to time, even though i will be taking the exam very soon. Molecular bio, this is the tricky part, even i am a bit weak in it, but i was thinking to just revise some of it from Kaplan and FA...

physio is about applications,its better to do more questions than study... molecular biology was one hell of a thing even for me but it became easy wen i tried to remember it as a story from begining to end rather than bits here n there...
