Question Preventive Medicine & Health Maintenance

Hey guys.
I took NBME 4 today and got a 250. My lowest performance was in "Preventive Med & Health Maintenance", in fact there was a star at the far left. Other than reading the short Preventive Medicine section in MTB 2 and doing the uworld Preventive Medicine questions, is there anything else I should be doing to improve in this section? My exam is in a few weeks.
Thanks for your help.

MTB has a very good section for that. I think it's high yield.

I skipped the Kaplan lecture notes. They are highly recommended though so I would not skip them if you have the time to read them.

Thanks for the advice guys. I will take a look at the NBME 4 discussion thread.
