Default Weak basics: build it up OR review & chew?

First and foremost, I have like 3 years before I could be able to appear in the Match, so I have 3 years of relatively free time, and I want to take the steps during this period.
I've got really weak basics, and I need to know how to treat this problem.

Should I stick to textbooks and build up my basics thoroughly OR stick to review books and Qbanks and that would be enough to accomplish this mission and BUILD my fundamentals, not only review them?

As I just said, I will take the steps during this time, so eventually my goal is to act as good as I dream at in the steps.

Sorry if this question has been asked several times before, but I really have special circumstanses (much time, weak basics) and I am really so confused about this.
