As ur exam close in, you must maintain ur calm, its very important.
you will need to provide more details about how u are doing currently, like test scores, or NBME, then it will be easy to assess ur readiness.
the topics to read more will depend on ur weak areas as determined by ur test scores. have u done UWorld or Kaplan Qbank?

Do NBME 7 and see what you get. If you pass, go take exam and have some confidence going in. If you fail it, put off your exam. Do your last quick review of your First Aid..

i am going to take nbme 7 but the offline one..
can u plz tell me what percentage in nbme amounts to a good score in step 1.obviously i am for a 99.
i have read kaplab three times and first aid once.

kaplan avg abt 75 pc..
i plan to read first aid once more.

Heyy... Those are good scores and they are representative of people who got scores in the 235+ range (about a 99) I'd still recommend taking NBME 7 online because it is the single best predictor we have of how you do on the actual exam, but your scores indicate that you should be okay.

I would stay away from a full review of any book at this point other than First Aid and in your spare time just do qbank questions. If you're really worried about physio you can focus on physio questions specifically, but make sure you dont forget your pharm or other easy to forget subjects..

thanks !
