Help Second qbank and how long?

Hello people,

I was supposed to do my exam within next 1 month but due to some circumstances I may have to do by it by end of June. I have already finished UW with 55% average and I am revising it once again along with FA.
Now I am thinking of getting another qbank because I have time till June.

Which qbank do you lot think I should take and for how long?

Hello.
Do Kaplan Qbank.
I did kaplan first, and now i'm doing UW.
Kaplan is the second best qbank according to FA and to what I've heard from people in this forum.
Have you done any NBMES??????

I haven't done any NBMEs yet.

I have seen those polls but what i want to know is should i keep on doing Qbanks till my exam time or have some break between Qbank and the exam to just exclusively study my resources? Hence the question for the time period suggestion.

It's recommended to continue doing questions until 2-3 days before your exam. Also Read here
