Ignoring Weak Areas: Focusing only on strengths while neglecting weaker subjects can be detrimental. Solution: Regularly identify and work on weak areas to ensure a balanced understanding.

Overusing Resources: Trying to study from too many sources can be overwhelming and confusing. Solution: Stick to a few high-yield resources like First Aid, UWorld, Next Steps Mentoring and Pathoma for focused and effective study.

Skipping Practice Tests: Avoiding practice exams can leave you unprepared for the exam format and time constraints. Solution: Take regular practice tests to assess your progress and adapt your study plan accordingly.
