Default ck studying tips?

I am currently in my radiology rotation which is pretty relaxed (i'm done by 9am mon-fri) and i will have 2 weeks free at the end of May. My CS is June 3. I have an internal medicine 4 week elective for the month of june which will be very busy hours. July I am taking off for studying and my exam is at the very end of July..

My goal score is a 240+ for CK. I have ALL resources available to me: kaplan videos + qbank, uworld, step up to medicine, mtb 2 and 3, pathoma.

I have been studying throughout my rotations for each rotation specifically.. Example: during obgyn i read kaplan obgyn and then did all uworld qs for obgyn. The only rotation I haven't done yet is psychiatry.

I scored pretty low on step 1 (209) and I want to get into an internal medicine program. I am not sure how to utilize the time I have left to study for ck. Should I just do questions till the exam date? Should I still be doing lecture videos or reading? Should I just read topics that I don't understand on uworld? I am currently at a point where I am at least familiar with all of the topics on uworld and nothing seems to be new to me (even if i get the question wrong) I at least know what it is talking about.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Especially from those who have taken CK and scored well.
