Help Still have obgyn remaining what to do?

I started studying for this damn thing back near the end of may im a typical ADD person so i do stuff in fits and starts still i had momentum and had finished Internal medicine and peads and psychiatry and biostats with all the questions from Uwolrd, life interrupted and i screwed up and took an almost 2 month break now im stuck with the 19th as a date that i cant change.

Im finishing surgery today ,im finiding it quite easy but i did it from the kaplan book and i only did the 2nd section i felt like the first part was a waste of time. finishing up the questions today. so leaving OB/GYN as my only remaining major.

anyway now my issue is OB/GYN i have set aside 1 week to do it thats with uworld questions according to uworld there are 200 questions that would take me a day and a half to 2 days to finishh and review so that leaves 5 days to study now what is the best option for me right now. I have kaplan notes i have the vids, i have mtb ck, and mtb step 3. also first aid ( im one of the guys who usually has all the books but in a dusty corner brand new and never used ).

Guys what book should i focus on to finish it to maximum efficacy in regards to the time frame i have for it.

This time frame leaves me 9 days to review which according to my estimate is 5 days for medicine review (i did it very well so it shouldnt take long but giving it the most as its the longest and most high yeild comparativly also as a side note with medicine i include psychiatry and opthalmology ) 3 days remaining 1 day to quick read each.

mmmm i think you can finish whole obg in 5 days .. read quickly from kaplan , then quickly from either mtb 3 or first aid obg .... and each day of the 5 days try to do block of obg UW ,, you will have really to work so very hard to catch up ,,may god be with you .. don't worry and try to do NBME BEFORE EXAM ,, and try to reschadule or if you felt you're npt gonna make it , or obg will sink your score down ,,, don;t go for the exam ,,if you get low score there is no second chance ... good luck

You could do Obstetrics from MTB 2CK and GYN from KLN. OBS is pretty good in MTB, GYN is not!

@ Rooshy i wish i could reschedual but no chance at all so its either do it or lose it. So u think 5 days is enough? i dunno man that kaplan book is preety big for finishing in 5 days with questions. If im reading something for the first time i average 5 minutes to do one side of a page so obgyn is 269 pages thats approx 23 hours worth or reading so hmm yeah it is possible. but will be hard so lets see how long it takes for real compared to how long it should take specially with my laziness/ADD.

@dr_mhm do u mean to say the OB section of mtb CK or MTB Step 3? as far as i know everyone likes the obgyn of mtb Step 3 over the one from CK

I just checked MTB CK OB is 40 pages and the topics looks preety thorough. So if its sufficient that would cut in half the time i would need for the OB portion making it easier.

If someone has done it from the MTB Step 3 book can you compare the difference between them?
