My exam is in exactly in a month :eek:...

I am in the middle of UW (50% finished), finished this far in 10 days. Score is quite good. I have finished First Aid Q and answer and kaplan Q book as review question material.

I have been over FA twice and referred to it while doing questions frequently.

I also think I should do more picture questions from the Utah university website http://library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/EXAM/EXAMIDX.html ... it's a good one by the way ;).

So you think I should leave doing questions and start reviewing FA over and over again or should I go on with the review questions...

Any other advice (beside laying of usmle-forums for a while :))?

Probably it's good time for you now to do NBME
I suggest you do one or two forms and see where you stand

another advice,
whatever you review in the next month tell yourself "this is the last time am looking at this page" this is very important to gear you up for the big day.

Eat well, wake up early from now on.

Tell your family, that the next month is the most important month and you should not waste any minute from your time.

No weekends, no parties, no eat outs .... It's this 30 days that will decide your USMLE Step 1 fate.

We'll pray for you and we wish you a great luck

Did you do Kaplan notes?
Hardly, I did most of biochem. the rest I used them (or other material) for reference while reviewing difficult points on FA... But ofcourse I don't have the option of reviewing them now, and though a lot of ppl found them useful and scored high relying on them, even if I do, I (personally) am not a big fan.

Wish you best of luck in exam ....my prayers are with you ...... and thanks for the posts ....

don't let your sleep rhythm disturbed this month .... especially the last week before the exam ..... so that you can see your performance at your best in the exam day ....

I think .....for some more weeks you can go through Q study along with reviewing .....but not in the final countdown week .....at least that week should be occupied with reviewing the portions what you need to and want to be polished ......as it will vary individually ...

Wish you all the best in exam :)

Wish you the best

I am not going to say "Good luck," because I believe you won't need "luck" to answer ;)

Looking forward to congratulate you :D
