Help REALLY NEED ADVICE!!! Please and thank you!

Hello,


I have 7 weeks left before my exam (thinking November 21st or 22nd).

On my last NBME I got 210...and I (obviously) need to do much better.
I've been studying on and off since June and am definitely getting burned out now... so I have two options that I'm thinking now:

September 28-October 9: DIT + 2 blocks of RX qbank every night
October 10-20: Pathology review (Pathoma and Barone live lectures) + 2 blocks of RX qbank every night
October 21-22: UWSA 2 + Review
October 23-November 9: 2nd pass of UW (making it 3 blocks a day)
November 10: NBME 13 + review
November 11-November 16: Read all of FA + UW incorrects
November 17: NBME 15 + review
November 18-21: Review FA again + UW incorrects

That's kind of my plan right now

The only thing I was double minded about was September 28-October 9 - Should I do DIT? Or try and do two runs of FA myself and a couple of days on DIT for neuro, physio, and immuno because I am weaker in those.

So which is better? DIT or doing two runs + other videos on my own??

Thanks

Thank for the feedback...

I know DIT takes too long..
I just feel so burned out..it took me like 5 days to do 150 pages of FA! Which is pretty much the speed of DIT anyway :/

If you think you can bear watching videos at this stage of your preparation and it helps you then go for it.
