Medicolegal and Ethics Help needed in Improving NBME Score

Needed some advise on how to drastically improve on NBME score. Failed my first NBME. I have done uworld: 52% average....second time:70s-80s%. I have also read MTB2 twice. What do you guys suggest i do next?

I was thinking to get usmlerx qbank and read MTB3 cover to cover? or should i just stick to my previous resources?

I want to take the exam by early august but have CS to study for for next month.

Can anyone help answer Dr. KnifeHappy?

Did you do the usmleworld questions in subject or random? Was your step 1 background recent?

I am not sure if MTB alone is up to date or enough by itself. I don't know if usmle rx or kaplan qbank will help. Does anyone have input?

Did uworld random timed....took notes and everything. Step 1 was 1 year ago. Felt i have done everything right....really want to know how people improve on their NBME scores over time. Is it just with repetition, or is adding another source vital?

Basically you have 2 more months. I have one more. My exam is on May end. I have done Uworld Random timed once. I have not done UWorld twice. I am planning to do it again.What is your NBME score?
