Default how effective is it to review weak subjects(according to nbmes)

Seriously. How effective is it to review weak subjects according to one's nbmes? I am being very critical of my nbmes and am throughly reviewing the weak subjects according to the chart that the nbmes provide. Anyone find their scores skyrocket after reviewing the weak subjects? Please do provide feedback

Its a very good approach..this is the only way to put NBMEs into best use ..and make sure when you do another NBME your performance area has shifted to right..
trust me..the same thing happens in exam..i was always borderline in cardiology in my nbme and for step 1 my behaivoural was always on the lower side..and when I gave the exam thinking that I have revised everything thoroughly , my weak areas on the score report were the same as those in my NBME's..
I would say make a list of the topics you are weak in or the ones that need to be crammed and tested very often..Otherwise we tend to forget which area we needed to work and realise it only when we cant pick a right answer for an easy question in the exam..good luck
