Listening Exam last week of May

I'm an IMG, took step 1 in last wk of November 2010. For the step 2 CK I've been studying since January 6-8 hrs/day, I've read just MTB and usmle step 2 secrets, good books if you have a good knowledge base but they omit important number of test facts, so I've been taking notes from uworld,,,i think the most difficult part of the real exam is the length of the questions, I've been told questions are longer than uworld and similar to Kaplan in length, I just begun Kaplan but it's harder than uworld! the real exam cannot have a lot of qs that only 20 or 30% do right like in Kaplan, so in conclusion I think the exam difficulty is similar to uworld but the length to Kaplan q bank, DO U know of any good NMBE apart from 4?
I did NBME 4 2 wks ago got 211/420 did really bad in psycho, now I'm finishing my 2nd read of the MTB and watching some kaplan vid of int med/psych from the year 2001 but are really good! and starting cases files psycho.

Any suggestion? I'll let you know my exam experience after the big day

Was doing 68-70% in uworld but 55-57% in kaplan, before this 10 day review. Now I got left 60% of kaplan and 20% of uworld wich i will begin to do in 3 days, hope that these days without timed questions didnt affect the ability I was developing and timed management to do questions!
