Also, still i am not satisfied with my UW studies, do u think its wise to subscribe for it again? Right now i am doing FA.

Arrow Try something new

What i would suggest to do is do nbme 1 if you haven't done it before anything else.

After you do that assessement, i would then do kaplan qbank. There is no point to do a qbank twice unless your going to try and read each and every explanation for each question just for the purpose of learning..

But if you want to do a new qbank to test yourself, its advisable to do a new qbank such as kaplan's soon.

Try not to stick too much with the FA unless you kno all other subjects pretty well. FA alone isn't enough for the USMLE.

You need to have multiple reads of everything (all subjects) in order to prevent that
