Help Need your expertise

Hi friends,
I am here again asking for your suggestion. I've been studying for step 1 since early December (roughly 10 weeks). I am using Kaplan Lecture Notes and Video most of the time. I am also attending Kaplan Live Lectures to supplement it. I guess I am doing just OK so far, I have finished reviewing all Kaplan videos and lecture notes, taking all the Kaplan subject assessment exams and scored overall 80 % (excluding Pharm and Path because I plan to take it after the live lecture). Well it really can't tell me much where I stand now since I haven't started any qbanks yet.

I am planning to take my exam at the end of April but until now I haven't reviewed other sources like Goljan Rapid Review (+audio) and First Aid. I am planning to start revising First Aid early March after the Live Lecture finish.
I also have Kaplan Qbank Plus subscription (including Physiology Qbank and Integrated Qbanks, overall around 3600+ questions) which I haven't started working on, while at the same time, I am thinking of subscribing to USMLE World too since many students really recommend it.

In this situation, I am so overwhelmed, I don't know where I should start? I only have 8 weeks after the live lecture, I don't think I can cover them all (especially Goljan ). Any suggestion for me, how to organize my study schedule and which one is my priority. Is it possible to finish both q banks, I thinks they are all great qbanks.

Thanks a lot guys !!!

You don't need to do Goljan RR and you don't need to do Goljan audio and you don't need to do Kaplan Physio Bank. That's overkill.

Just focus on your KLN, FA, Kaplan Qbank, and UW and you should be fine.

Hi, thanks for ur suggestion, I do appreciate it . Hmm, i think I will skip RR Goljan, hopefully Barone will do great job during Pathology Live Lecture...we'll see then if I still need Goljan after that...
