Default Need help !!!!!

Am an Img preparing for step1. My exam is on 21st April..
I have read Kaplan lecture notes as well as videos once except pathology for which I did goljan audio and rapid review.
I am doing UW and FA simultaneously now.. Done with 40% with an average of 68%.. I will be happy to know how I should game on with my preparation.
1) is it necessary to read Kaplan lecture notes for all subjects again (my plan is to read goljan rapid review and behav science and 100 cases) .. Any modifications suggested??
2)how many times should I read FA
3)after am done with UW , should I do UW again (am planning to) should I add either USMLERx or Kaplan Qbank
4)when should I take nbmes and which ones..

Thank u for your reply in advance !!!!

I didn't touch Kaplan notes. FA and usmle world are great. Just make sure you know the concepts inside out. Memorising isn't enough. Once you read FA and do the questions on usmle world you'll realise how to apply your knowledge. The real exam has questions that are similar. Above all DO NMBES ONLINE. My biggest mistake was not doing any. I guess the latest would be the most predictive. If you score around 250 you can be almost certain you'll get over 240 unless you have a major in exam frank out. Good luck

I have not taken the exam yet, but brother think about it, what do you mean by how many ones should I read first aid??? define read?? so If I tell you read it 10 times do you think it will guarantee you something?? come on man, do it as many times as you can, as many times as you think is helping you!!!
