Default Hoping to take exam in April - please advise

Hi guys,

I've been studying on and off for a year now. I have gone through FA once or so, gone through Goljan audio once, and Pathoma videos once. I have done 100 questions on UWorld and am now averaging around 50%.

The challenge for me is to score > 240 on the exam and study alongside my demanding clinical rotations AND study for medical school exams.

I'm trying to find a study plan that works and something that I can stick to. I have narrowed my sources down to FA, UWorld, and Goljan/Pathoma for pathology.

I'm thinking about using DIT since it seems like a nice structured way of going through FA. So I was thinking about a study plan like so assuming I have 3 hours a day to study and then all of the weekend.

So during the weekdays I was thinking of doing 2 or 3 DIT lectures, and covering relevant topics in Goljan and Pathoma, and doing at least 1 set of 44 UWorld questions.

And then on the weekends, I could use the time to catch-up if I've slowed down, and also to review questions that I did in UWorld?

I have fully annotated my FA on my computer, so the plan is to write down notes directly into my computer so that I have a centralized source to study. (i.e., rather than writing down in my FA, I have decided to write it all up on my PC and just annotating it there).

What do you guys think about this? There may be some obvious flaws with this plan and I may not even get to do this much in one evening. Please help.

Thanks
