Try to do at least 2 blocks/day. That way you can comfortably finish review UW and your mistakes in a month. Forget about the UW score, that does not mean anything. You will using nbme and uwsa to assess your performance anyways. After you are done with UW, review MTB. 2 months is heck of a lot of time if you spend it well. Good luck

Nah. I know people who did not have time to even review UW once, ended up just reviewing the mistakes and scored above 245. Once is more than enough if you are limited by time.

mtb is good for quick review. I read it once in 8 days and went over IM again couple of days before the test. Its not comprehensive like FA for step 1 was, so reading it again and again is not very productive. I would focus more on reviewing all the questions in UW using mtb as a review in the end. Its how well you get the concepts in UW that would improve your score.

Uworld is not enough for the exam. As a recent exam taker I can tell you this comfortably. Uworld concepts cover 65-70% of the exam content. Unless you have a good medical background or supplement uworld with CMS it is almost impossible to score 250+
