I would take another assessment after another run of uworld... Dont sit for the exam unless you score 10-15 points above passing score. Just my opinion.

Yeah I agree with that logic, I'm going to review MTB, and go over uworld and take another nbme soon

Wow you guys are good. I study all day and all I can do is UWorld 3 blocks I finished incorrect questions and now have like 1000 questions left 2nd time for Uworld. Do you guys think I should read MTB 2, 3 or just keep doing UW?

I haven't touched a book in like 2 months. Exam in less than 1 week

most ppl I spoke to, said do UW at least couple of times. I guess if you still got UWorld to cover, then do uworld. But then again, if your first time % was pretty high, then its probably less rewarding . when is your exam?

You're exactly right. My original plan was to do UW 2x atleast and read MTB2+3 right after it. However first time UW took a very long time (I could only do one block a day) so things got slowed in the end. I'm taking UWSA in a few days if that goes well I'll take it. But I'm not content going into the exam with 800 questions that I haven't reviewed or reading MTB.

Im taking NBME 6 tmr, if the trend looks positive, then UWSA maybe thursday...I am trying to postpone my exam to 23-25th...I think everybody is trying to get it done so their mark will be out before Sept 15th. I want it to be done too, but I am afraid I might end up with a mediocre score that might jeopardize the future. Look at the bright side, at least you got CS done, one less thing to worry I am still waiting for my result. BTW, have you taken 6? how is it comparing to the other NBME(2,3,4,7)
