Help Third attempt need advice

Hello. I am studying for this test the third time around. My study materials have been Master the Boards and UW only. I did well on the CCS cases. My UW assessment was 440 (I knew it was borderline, but had no time left to take it). I feel really lost in what materials to use this time around. I know everybody recommends Master the Boards, but I feel that it is not enough for me. I am terrified of using the wrong materials and even more terrified of failing. I would really appreciate any help. What materials I should use? What strategy? Thanks.

I would recommend Archer and doing more questions such as Kaplan Qbank.

Take NBME and see what it predicts this time.
