  yes they r.....they really help...do them with the lecture notes...then start UW & Q bank (or go with Q bank subjectwise after u finish each subject then UW at the end) everyone has their prefrences.

  do all IM ones first...cardio/hemeonc/renal/ are very good

obg and gyne are boring but useful..same for surgery..so repetitive that you end up getting it by heart

peds --dunno..never did it myself

psych and surg generally better to do from UW and read around stuff that u dont know

nb...just my personal experience

  ure right dolly, most important is IM so do it first, personally i liked the OB/GYN & peds, surgery the guy pretty much reads out of the book (but like dolly said it'll stick to ure head), focus on trauma cause that's the most heavily tested subject in surgery and psych isn't that big of a deal..u can just read the book although ide recommend doing it with a study buddy...ESP antipsychotics....it also makes it alittle easier if u relate each disorder to some keywords and a person (movie star or someone u know), so i'de recommend IM first, psych & surgery last, OB/GYN & peds...personal prefrence.

about the Qs...dont bother with Qbook if ure gonna do Q bank, UW & Q bank are more than enough..with UW, TAKE NOTES...it's a mistake i made and my exam is on the 21st of this month so no time to do it...but i wish i had!!

  pick your weakest topics and the most confusing ones....everyone has them...it's just different from one person to another....i'de also advise that instead of doing a 3rd reading (u mentioned time was short) start UW...it'll be ALOT more helpful than a 3rd read...as i said in my previous post...TAKE NOTES...if u have the time do UW twice..it'll cement everything and it covers all the concepts neccesary for USMLE....also Q bank is very useful...use it for timed mode...if u look through previous posts on the forum ul find links for both...and if u dont...post ure e mail and im sure "someone" can help u.

Good luck

  do medicine dvds....like cardio,endo,renal ,haemat....first

2.obgy

3.psych

4.surg/paedslast.....same as notes

with dvds...read the test

go to uw next as you have to take notes and read test simultaneously acc to topic currently doing in uw

last ..review uw notes and read kaplan again so get a complete info...if possible kqnak..optional.

this is what i recommend....gl
