  Hey Dr.N good to see you but not like this. Calm down.
did u do kaplan Q bank?? more important than UW , that is the general opinion.
how many more days for your exam?
Sure we will discuss, u keep posting them & inputs will keep coming.
I don't know which form is better.
Recent exam takers NIshi & malvika suggest FA FA FA during the last few days.
take care, best wishes.

  Dear nautilus:

please do 1/2 day FA, and 1/2 day Q (any Q is good), and make sure you go over your final notes within the 10 days, visit the forum when you are taking your break from study or Q.
DO NOT touch any new materials...............

10 days is not a long time, but you can do it.
take 30 min think about what you are going to do for the next 10 days, and 30 min for break, and start your new plan today.

hope this help.
have fun study, and GL

  Hi nautilus,
You are very lucky having only 10 days in your exam. think about the freedom and fun you ll be having after your test. UW is not for assessment as everybody says, its for gaining more knowledge. Marie, cd45 and coke are the best. they advised you right. take FA and preferably do usmlerx with that. FA covers more than 70% of the test. I cant advise you to do UW at this peak. Q bank is good. Good luck nautilus. i m waiting to hear you passed!!!!

  Thank you...
I did Kaplan Q bank long back...but couldnt finish it completely though.
And yes i feel i cant do UW now.
But i just want to do atleast few every explanations look like revising.
Hmmm...FA...yeah...I will.
Yes my exam 16th...
After that I have many happy things happening...which i want to really enjoy happily...especially going to meet my 1 Y/o after an year...wk after the exam!!!
Thats the only motivation I have right now...and thats the only deviation too!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But just praying god to give me strength to do right things in last days of prep...and give me good concentration thro the 8hrs...and give a good recall...and rest not in my hands!
thanks friends
I am actuall ythinking to do UW 7 blocks trying to simulate 8 hr test. so that i can learn atleast those 350 q's..any advice..r feed back appreciated.

Thanks all of u...
