I already did all of UWorld..took me about 2.5 months to complete, and i've already seen DIT once back in November. I am reviewing and feel that i cant retain much while reading FA. That is why I decided to do FA and DIT together.

The only thing I would suggest doing differently is giving yourself at least a day between taking NBME exams. Those things take a lot of energy and bybthe end of the day you are drained, so your performance on subsequent days might go down. It might also be good to review the day after each exam.

The NBME explanations are a great idea. Also, it seems that NBME 7 is the best score predictor, so probably do that about 2 weeks to have a good prediction of where you are. Also, many people do the free NBME 150 during the final week so if you find you don't have enough time you could probably skip one of the USWA assessment and do that instead.

i would like to take 2 nbmes at a time b/c prior to that, i would've gone through DIT, FA, and my uworld notes. I'm hoping i would've gained some knowledge in order to hopefully score high in NBMEs.

Even i'm not sure if there are explanations but if there are, doesnt hurt to purchase and understand the q's, as i've been told there have been some repeats on the USMLE.
