USMLEWorld UWorld Advice

Hey guys,

I finally got my permit but haven't scheduled a date yet. looking to set one up for late MAY. (about 2 and a half months to go still). I was wondering if you guys can advise me on what to do for my USMLE World QBANK ! I was planning on getting it starting March but I havent finished through my first read of Kaplan yet. I still have to finish Kaplan and then do CMMRS and RR for micro and path ! Please help !!

Thanks

Is it ok to start UWorld along with my reading ? I can still start doing questions or blocks for the stuff that I've finished or do you recommend that I finish my first read and only then start Uworld ?

I'd say finish your first reading and then hit on UW

When are you planning on taking your exam ?
I was thinking the same thing, whether we should do UWorld after 1 or 2 reads of Kaplan. Are you also doing RR? I feel like its very time consuming to do the whole book though!

I haven't planned when Im going to be taking the exam, i'm hoping late may or june. Hopefully, I have 2 or maybe 3 reads of Kaplan and FA done by then.

Im reading relevant FA after I finish the subject in Kaplan so it counts as a read I guess. So in the end, I will only read FA and leave Kaplan (after a couple of reads)

I've read RR once, page to page, but, seems that i've forgotten EVERYTHING . So I think i'm going to just stick with Kaplan LN for pathology (lots of people have gotten 99's with only Kaplan!)
