Get Kaplan videos and leture notes. Start from any subject (e.g. anatomy). Read the notes of any specific topic, then watch its video and after watching the video re-read the topic. That way the topic will stick to yor mind. Once you finish all of the Kaplan notes and videos, start Kaplan Qbank and start your second read of Kaplan. Although many people give Kaplan a single read and some give 3-5 reads, your number of reads should depend on how much you have retained from your first read. After you're done with Kaplan, understood every concept, memorized every detail, then move on to First Aid. Go through it, annotate it with important points from Kaplan and give it as many reads as required. Once you're done with FA, start using UWorld questions. And once you're done with UW and you feel you're ready, start NBME forms. Best of luck
