NBME 4 is more predictive of the score than the rest, so I think it should be left towards the end.

Personally I did nbme 6 first and then NBME 4.

Do NBME 4 and UWSA last and rest first.

I Did all the books(MTBs and kaplan) before starting UW. During UW 1st pass I only took notes on a separate notebook, because as you go along UW you will feel MTBs are not a much of a big help and mastering UW is the way to go forward. Take time to understand every algorithm, table and explanation in UW. Dont rush through.

I started with 1 block a day initially, like for 2-3 days and then switch to 2 blocks a day. Theoretically if you are doing 2 blocks/day, you will need 26 days to complete the whole Qbank (2259 total Q). But At days you will be not be able to finish explanation reads of the two whole blocks per day and you will slack slowly. So 40 days to finish is a safe time limit.

In 2nd pass i did 6 blocks per day and then read explanations at that day and the next. As i have gone through the Qbank pretty well, these reads were fast and only there to close the gap on information that i have missed or not understood the first time. Also doing questions took less time as i remembered some questions and was able to complete these 6 blocks in 4.5 hours.
