Default I need help :(

Dear All,

I am an IMG/Perm Resident who started studying Step 1 last August(2012!!) but had many circumstances since then that slowed my progress alot like getting engaged and working at this really shitty hospital for 3 months with no time to really do anything but anyways, here i am still studying step 1 and whats stressing me the most is that i feel like i don't remember much!! I studied as follows....

1. BRS Patho and Physio, Kaplan Videos for Pharm, Micro made ridiculously simple, Immuno from kaplan videos, Biochem Kaplan videos, Behavioural from FA!

2. I got bored and started DIT-Doctors in Training videos ( reached almost 50% of it now) and they really helped increase the quality of my knowledge but i still feel weak somehow!

I paid for 3 months of UW and solved maybe 100 questions due to lack of time

I have a valid Qbank subscription which i go on from time to time.

I am getting sick of this !! I want to apply really soon to be able to do step 2 and do the 2014 match process and get this over with!! ( done my cs in 2011)

Should i do NMBE?? Should i restudy everything?what should i do am really really lost!!!!! Please help me

Hey ,,you 've done good up to now ,, don't give up ,, just keep on reading and revise your FA ,, start doing NBME ,,and well you need to decide what to do with your Job ,,
I'm an IMG too ,i was reading during my residence and believe me it didn't worked that much , so after collecting some money , i left my job back home and i try to make all the possible time for studying ,, remember your score will stick with u forever ,, so it deserves some sacrifices
wish you all the best
