I have the same situation mate! I have done my second pass of FA and got 57 average on 15 blocks. I plan just to do 2 more passes of FA with RX and start Uworld.

i also thought of rereading fa; but ppl say it wont help, unless u will start uworld. cuz when u read u think that u understand nd memorize everything, but wile doin tests u realize that its not so easy. when u plan to take exam ?

IMHO you should stick to Rx for now, try to squeeze out as much as you can from that qbank. Learn it, understand the concepts and when reviewing FA try to memorize all you can. Avoid the easy qs, they're ridiculously easy and won't help you. Overall is a decent qbank that will help you to get used to the question format, timing, and the two/three-step reasoning needed for the test.

By doing this -along with DIT- you'll start to master FA. Start UW after reading FA from cover to cover once. A big amount of the UW material is sort of covered in FA, so rereading FA will definitely help you.

Cheers!

Easy questions still help you as they will help hammer important facts and key points in your brain

If you can answer easy questions and understand the concept you will be solidfiying the facts and not missing little details

I would suggest you start Uworld.
Make sure you annotate what you learn from each question into FA. Not too excessive though.
For each question read the explanation for all options and also read FA about that topic. This way you will end up reading each topic in FA multiple times and each time you learn something new which you didn't notice the previous time. Spend at least 10 minutes for each question.
You need to do Uworld at least 2 times. The reason this qbank is so good is because it helps you understand everything. Don't mug up the answers.
It will take you 3 months to finish Uworld+ FA and then both again.
Am doing the same and I can definitely feel the progress.
