Help One month to go...need to increase marks!

Ok guys, since I only have a month to go I was wondering if I could get any advice on how to increase my marks by about 15 points? Have done UW, starting Kaplan QBank and reading FA. Haven't looked at Kaplan books for 3 months so should I give them another read to gain concepts? Will Kaplan Qbank help with concepts? Also thinking of now re-reading Goljan too. I really want to hit atleast 225+ now and want to use this month to my full potential as I cannot extend past this month. My nbme's have been between 214 (nbme2) and 227 (nbme1). I would appreciate any advise

Is it possible for me to increase to 225+ on the real test as my most recent nbme showed 214?

Hi
I am also nearly three weeks left. I just did UWSA 1 209 . haven't done NBME and UWSA 2.

I think that possible for you. As I am revising the wrong questions and the weak area.

Stay calm and concentrate for the last month
You can do it

Yes, you can improve that much in a month. Hopefully you have really consolidated notes that you can review within a week. I like to review notes and do questions for 6 out of 7 days, then at the end of the week, take an NBME and see where I stand.

Get the expanded feedback and see where your weakpoints are.
