Default Quick advice needed

I have less than 23 days before my test. I have done UW once (random, timed, finished in the high 60s), read Kaplan 1x, MTB 2&3 1x 2 months ago.

For the last two months I have been doing UW and nothing else. My question is can I just stick to UW second round until test day? I really don't think I have time to go through MTB 2 and 3.

Thanks in advance

if u have taken step 1, then its time to give your 3 hours only ( not everyday) to FA step 1 and just give a glance to selected topics..

What do you mean by saying selected topics? Who select them? And how often step 1 questions occur on 2 CK?

23 days....

(1) JUST FLIP through FA step1, it wont fetch much points though. however, reading MTB will fetch > points than setp1. i mean MTB does have step1 stuff, what abx for actinomycic/nocardia, clostridium difficil stuff etcetc. these are the kinds of step1 stuff that is tested and is present in setp2 books as well. ck does not test kreb cycle, RNA primers so i dont see any point in doing stpe1 books. opinion of others respected.
(2) if you have subscription repeat uworld once, whole of it.
(3) repeat again the incorrect ones.

NOTE: nothing beats uworld, u will be surprized stuff directly tested from uworld.
