1.u just gave kaplan notes 1 read? many revisions did you give to 1st aid? it better to note the new things from uworld separately or on 1st aid?

4.what about pathoma with its videos?will it be sufficient to face the music?

reply to these questions will be of immense help.
1- yes, as I said I gave it just 1 read because I integrated all key concepts to first aid
2- countless, while doing qs on Uworld whenever I encountered a concept I was not 100% sure of I went back to first aid and review it. For example question about statins, went back reviewing all drugs for dislipidemia
3- think it is to one's own preference
4- I didn't use pathoma just because I had already studied goljan. I believe most of different books available are equivalent one to another, just study smart and you'll be fine

Most importantly, this exam is doable. Don't listen to people claiming to study 12 hours/day for several months. Don't isolate yourself from your friends, don't give up sports and so on.
