Default Best Way to do UWORLD?

hi guys!

i have a quick question, i jus started off with UW, doing it Random timed mode. scoring bw 50 n early 60z. kinda disappointed. earlier i did Kaplanqbnak for a month, only IM subjectwise tutor mode.
i want to ask if doing UW in Subectwise Timed mode is better way of learning than doing it random? my exam is in end of August. so like most of us here. going neck to neck with prep!
any advice would help
THanx

You are doing it the right way but you need to brush up your knowledge.
My suggestion is to read Kaplan LN along with Kaplan videos and do Kaplan Q Book. MTB 2 for revision.

Kaplan Qbank was good!! thoight i basically rushed through it, overall i liked the question format apparently, and like evryone says, its more of real exam style questions! overall , id highly recommend it, esp atleast Internal Medicine!

and UW i gues covers on the Main topiks u need to kno for the exam. its like a good study resource

For Step 2 Kaplan & Conrad Fischer are pretty much is all that you need to score good. QBook helps you understand & reinforces concepts in a Q&A setting what you learned by reading KLN. It's not that up to date and that's where MTB comes in the picture.
Just like MedEssential for Step 1 , Kaplan Q Book is hidden albeit a flawed gem.
