Default Need help

Hey everyone! Really need some help with Step 1 prep

I started around an year ago and have been studying on and off. Started uworld some time ago and got done with 33 blocks random timed unused and getting an average of 63 so far. Really disappointed with this. I did pathoma around twice. I feel that I don't retain kaplan much. I have given 2-3 reads to first aid. I have a really hard time memorizing stuff. I cannot recall some of the stuff I read from Kaplan and feel that I should probably go back and do them again. Haven't done Kaplan q banks but doing them side by side. Any advice?

Should I keep doing and revising u world regardless of my scores? I booked May/June/July slot. Really confused because of the low uworld score.

Default That might help,

Although I didn't start preparing yet, but I think that I know what's going on with you. Sometimes that problem happeneds with me when I study to memorize not to get the concept.
Because studying to memorize is worthless. Therefore, if you do that strategy absolutely it's the problem. Study to get the concept not to memorize.
I hope that may help.
