Help The Remaining 2.5 Months of Prep

Assuming that i can not read Kaplan now (i may see it only for the topic i am weak in)
is it proper to do just FA, UW and Pathoma for remaining 2.5 months of my prep?

FA is concise yet very finely detailed book, taking me forever to go through it and i forget te stuffs as soon as i read it. I can hardly go through 15 pages a day, i am a full time learner.

Please anyone who recently took exam or going to take it, advice me how to manage my further prep.

And is it advised to take one week for each sub? Like, 3 days ill do FA for a subject and in remaining 4 days i ll solve UW for that respective subject? Coz i fear that if i spend one month in memorising FA and then wont be able to recall it while doing UW, it will be waste of my recent one month of doing FA...



Super confused...please help, thanks in advance...

I am IMG and an average student

I am in your exact situation

I don't have time to go thru all the lecture notes and the videos,
I have done kaplan for physio, bchem, pharm that should be good enough, for path im doin pathoma

I think as long as we understand UW why its right why its wrong, drill first aid, and do as many nbmes as we can, we will be good to go....

FA UW Pathoma (usmlerx if you need to drill FA better)
BRS are good books for clarification... ( physio constanzo etc)
and there is always google

good luck fellow december test taker
