Help 1 mo. left; what else should I do?

I have 1 mo. left for my Step 3 exam. I did UW qbank and CCS, took notes from them, but I don't know what to do now. I tried USMLE consult, and it turned out to have lots of mistakes (one of them is heading directly to barium enema in suspected intussusception when U/S should come first), so I stopped doing it.

Kaplan qbank seems to have just come out of testing as it was messed up and Dr. Conrad Fischer spent a lot of time fixing it, so I think I'll pass (not that my experiences with Kaplan qbank before were good either).

FA for Step 3 have so basic info and MTB for Step 3 is said to contain a lot of mistakes and contradictions.

I can't take the exam earlier because I won't be able to visit the US earlier than this. So what do I think I should do in this period of time?
I've regained my honor [99/99].
