Yes, I've finished UW in random timed mode (cumulative was 68%). The important point with UW is to learn from it. Scores do not mean much. With one block a day, I think you need around 2 months to finish the bank. Check how many questions you have left, and do the math. After you're finished with UW, take an NBME (preferably form 4, the latest) to estimate your score. Then if you don't like the score, you may want to delay the exam.

Of course biostatisitcs questions weren't as many as OBGYNE or Peds, but I noticed the questions were either psychiatry or biostatistics, and almost no ethics. I expected more ethics like "what would your response be?" type of questions, but there were almost none. That's why I felt there were more biostatistics. May be it's just my exam!
