  It underpredicts your score by 10 points. UWSA-2 is the exact predictor.

  The real test is very fair . To manage time I did 1 block then took 2 min rest , did another block, took 10 min and so on . When i did 4 blocks I took a break to get some lunch and use the restroom and then did the other 4 blocks as the first 4

The last 2 weeks I rev all the tables of uw and tried to improve my weak areas like obgyn
Tried to get on a healthy study schedule : 8- 5 and at night just relaxed and took it easy bcse u dont want to go and take the test being tired or overwhemed . Its important to get good sleep too

It worked for me. Hope all this helps.....

All the very best !
God bless🙏🏻

  @mortciia thank you so much for your help. I did only UW 2 times and didn't read MTB 2 or 3 because I didn't find it useful like FA step 1. And I took UWSA 1 and 2 and my score was not great, barely passed. I have only 1 NBME left and that is 8. My question is you took exam recently so is UW enough for exam? I have no time now to read MTB.

  I took the test on Feb 20th
My advice is to read mtb and do uw
Do u have the videos that go with the mtb Fischer gives the lectures with all the others guys that wrote mtb those videos are great and helped a lot .

I did mtb2 and uw thats all i did .
Didnt do mtb3 at all

UW i did like 5 times to get clear all the concepts with management and also best initial step
