USMLEWorld USMLE World, Round Two?

Hi..so I've done UW once for CK..and now I have 8 days for my exam..should I keep solving the questions again or just read through the answers on the UW tests that I've already solved?
I'm really stressed..cuz my UWSA was decent..570/233 and that was followed up 2 weeks later bye miserable NBMEs 4 and 3, with 300/183 and 390/204 respectively..I took them a day apart from each other..
Anyone..??

Default Postpone and do Kaplan

I suggest you postpone your exam.

Subscribe to Kaplan Qbank for at least one month. Review your material as you do the Kaplan questions.

There's no point in repeating UW questions or memorizing their answers. The idea is to get exposed to as many questions as you can before taking the test. See for example this poll
How many questions to practice?

Also, many recent exam takers have noticed that the exam is closer to Kaplan than it is to UW.

I really advise you to postpone the exam too. These NBME scores are not meant for a score more than 85 and you risk to fail greatly... I don't mean to be rude, but that's the truth about nbmes: they predict your score with great accuracy and your NBMEs are not good at all....
