I barely did first read of 6 subjects, pathology excluded. Then I flew to be with my parents for help so they helped with the baby and I studied well for next 4.5 months and took my exam. I did pathology only from Kaplan. Pathetic choice I know but I didn't have time for Goljan. Next I did a quick second read in 1.5 months. Then 1.5 months for first read of first aid then did uworld qbank 2200 questions in 1 month in which I averaged 72% in timed unused block practice and I did second read first aid simultaneously in same month. In last 15 days I was so tired I only reread difficult areas and took uwsa 1 & 2 in which I got 252 and 250 respectively. Didn't take any nbme I was so exhausted. Exam felt easier than uworld qbank or uwsa. Completed everything in time. Was expecting 240 since they say uwsa predicts +10 above the real score. But I guess 235 isn't a bad deal either. You can certainly do it
