I would highly recommed that you leave Kaplan Q bank, Uworld and NBMEs after your first read. Some for right at the end! like NBME forms 6 & 7 Which to me are the pre STEP 1 test for every one!
You can do other recommended book like pre test for physiology, USMLERX and others along with ur 1st read!

Finish all of u r subjects, buy FA and then start doing questions from kaplan qbank first. while doing questions u will come across lot's of info which u feel is HY and u will forget-write down that info in FA. complete qbank 50% and then read up and review FA and the small notes which u have written in it. den compete kaplan qbank, give another revision to fa and kaplan also this time note down points from kaplan which u still feel u have missed and start with u world.

All the best :)

The standard recommendation for study is
  • 1st read of Kaplan lecture notes with Kaplan Dvds with a few exceptions/additions as mentioned above
  • 2nd Read Kaplan lecture notes with First Aid and Q banks.
  • Practice as much MCQs as you (Kaplan Q bank, USMLE world Q bank, USMLERx Q bank)
  • 3rd Read with First Aid revision and more practice of MCQs
  • NBME, UWSA & other online MCQs practice
Different Individuals study in a different way with more and less number of reads but this is the basic and most widely recommended way.

You can add some q books i have mentioned during your 1st read too!

Hope that helps!
