Default Extreme beginner. How to get USMLE done in 2 summer vacations

I have completed third year of med school (bachelors)
So far I've taken Anatomy, Physiology, Histology and Biochem in year 1 and 2
I have taken pathology, pharmacology, Parasitology, and Microbiology in third year.
Now the thing is I have a little over a month left of this summer vac. And people where I come from advise that we start studying for USMLE after year 3 so that the stuff is still fresh and finish off in the vac of the fourth year which is a clinical year and take it then, so that we'd been exposed to clinical stuff.

The thing is: This is a HUGE load! Third year was so tough as is, I was not even capable of writing this post before. I needed a break from all of this.

I honestly have no idea where to start. I heard going over the Kaplan books to recall the info first is important, and seeing that I do not have anything from what I have taken in first (mostly) and the second year memorized atm, I feel I do need to do that. But how will I get the time for that? I have a job that I get back from at maybe 2 and I go back to full house. So if I wanna make the time, maybe 4-5 hours of study a day max.

And also, I am not sure how I can be using this coming month to the full and not have everything vanish by the fourth year.

Any help.please? *crying in a corner*
