An honest suggestion:

If you scored well in UW offline, and are comfortable with the matter in FA (which means u know most of it by heart), then DONT waste time with offline UW again. JUST DO ONLINE UWORLD ONCE, then get a couple of weeks of revision of FA, and sit for the exam... That should be it!
Oh, and you may wanna take an NBME or UWSA in between if you like. Assess yourself with its scores, and delay if u feel like it.


Cheers

Default take another

You already took Uworld, move to another qbak. Take Kaplan qbank and continue with FA which is a great complement. Don't forget to take a couple of NBMEs they always help you focus on weakest areas, those that you have time to review/improve.

You said you have already done uworld questions. Then you should do kaplan or rx and they have random timed mode. Doing uworld again ( Considering the fact that you have already encountered these questions) would be wasting of your time imo.

I agree with Baris. You already took UW a couple of times doesn't matter if it was offline, you already know many of the questions and that will give you a false estimate/score. Go with a different qbank, take Kaplan 1 month and USMLERx 1month too complementing both with FA, since you have the time, then an NBME to see where you are standing.
