hey haaj,

it seems like you are reading all the right materials and going through all the right qbanks. perhaps the problem could be that you are not applying the info to the question the "usmle" way, i.e. i found that there was no point in memorzing facts, but rather found that my scores on uworld improved drastically when i started to understand the concepts behind the facts.

also, figure out if you lost the exam due to CCS or the mcq's or both. from my experience i feel that one needs to really understand the reasoning behing the CCS cases rather than memorizing them. with that in mind, i found the offline usmleworld cases to be super awesome, b/c they explained the reason for each decision. but ofcourse, they should be used in association with the online usmleworld ccs cases.

hope this helps and good luck to you!
