Question How do I review what I studied before?

ok so prepared for the CK for 3-4mths was supposed to take the exam but then didn't feel ready so extended my eligiblity. For the past 2 months haven't been studying for personal reasons and now want to take it before the end of Jan.

What do you guys think is the best way to study everything that I had already spent months studying?

I was in a similar situation few months back. so i am advising you, STOP thinking about everything and start studying. Rapidly revise MTBs and then revise uworld again and take nbme within next 20days at the max.

Nbme score will motivate you to study hard. trust me on this and please take this suggestion dont spend time on thinking rather start working in this direction.

Hope this helps!!

ok, so should I start a UWOrld subscription again? I already did uworld twice before and made the noted and so was wondering if I should do the uworld again or do the offline version?

I am taking it in last week of january. I like only online uworld as many explanations have changed. i would rather say they have modified it. So its better to pay and get a new one for a month if yours has already expired. I am also doing my notes alongwith revising uworld second time. Hopefully I will be doing good. I can tell you more after my exam.

Good luck!

you should focus on u world and mtb 2 nd 3 . and still if you get time do some other q bank which improve your thinking and gives experience of new questions.
