Here is my advice

first: don't open lecture notes again in the same old way (I'll explain later)

2nd: I guess it's time now to do one of the NBME forms for evaluation

3rd: After you do NBME form you will get a report with your areas of weakness ,, combine that with the report of UW to further identify your areas of weakness and then mark your top 2 or 3 areas of weakness and review them again rapidly from a concise source like (master the boards) or from your lecture notes if you had time and power for that

4th: after you do your review ,, go back for your 2nd round of UW and it's a must ,, I'll say that again, 2nd round of UW is a must if you were seeking a high score in CK

after you finish your 2nd round I'd suggest you to do another NBME form or UWSA or even both if you could just to make sure everything is okay before going for the real exam

That's my advice to you ,,

again if you chose to do only one thing ,, just go for another round in UW

by the way tell me about your UW average score ,, may be that makes a difference to my previous advice to you.

Almost nothing is better than the main source from which we obtained our basic knowledge ,, but looking at the time factor and pre-exam circumstances I would recommend you MTB ,, It's written in such a fantastic way that will never make you bored of reading through it BUT I guess it's deficient in some areas like surgery and Gynecology yet it's great for reviewing IM and Psychiatry ,, so I would recommend it for you if you considered the previously mentioned points.
