It's always good to diversify your type of study from online to print to audio to video to texts to questions.
So yes, it's nice to listen to some audio books.

Both approaches are good. I'd say start with the slow approach to solidify your knowledge and then move on gradually to the fast approach making questions a form of practice for the upcoming exam.

We agreed that doing questions is good. To know if Consult is good see the link that I referred you to above and if you want to see the poll see this
What is the best USMLE step 2 CK online Qbank?

Am not sure if Robbins is a good choice for Step 2 CK but definitely it's good for Step 1.

Analyze why you are getting the questions wrong. If you are getting them wrong because of lack of knowledge then you need to review your books again. If you are not answering them because of poor question analysis and test taking skills then you need to do more questions and start paying more attention to the question clues carefully.

Low scores definitely mean what Sabio has said. I'd recommend you to review your weakest topics first (in which you score least in uw) and then the others.
After reviewing material, come back to the mcq's again. If you've improved, it's good. If not, try changing your approach to the question and review your test taking skills.
If your exam date is near, consider changing it.
Hope this helps.
