Unhappy Please Advice

I've just scheduled my exam to be in April & I'm starting to get ready.

I'm gonna watch Kaplan videos, read Kaplan notes, read First Aid then after i'm done with those, I'm gonna do a 2 months subscription of UW.

My questions are:

1- do i have enough time to do all that?

2- is it necessary to memorize kaplan notes cover to cover or just read carefully a couple of times? the reason I'm asking is that i really suck in memorization.

3- which is more important, reading the books or UW should do it?

4- That's all thank you all.

Yes, you have enough time to finish your plan.

You don't need to memorize, just understand the concepts and maybe memorize those things that need memorization such as the causes of AF for example.

Reading books and doing questions are both important. Read books first then practice with questions as much as you can.
