Default what to do next!

Hi,

I am taking my step 1 on may 12th. I have done the Kaplan videos and reviewed FA once. I just did a practice NBME and got 350/196! I was expecting to do a lot better than that, so I am a little disappointed and really nervous since I don't know if one month is enough time to improve to where I would like to be (240+). Should I reschedule my exam? plz help!!

I agree there, qbanks are your best friends along with FA. The important thing is to be able to review the questions you get wrong.

Take the weakest areas on NBME and go over those first without forgetting the others. Qbanks and reviews qbanks and reviews!!
