Hi,
I'm a working mom too (IMG). I will suggest you use as materials: the notes from Kaplan, the MTB 2(master the board step2) and the Qbank from UW. Then at the end of your preparation you should take the self assessments from NBME and UW to identify your weakness and guide your last review before the big day. Now regarding how long it will take you, I'm not the right person to give you advice. It depends on how fast you study, for how many hours a weekday and what score you aiming...I study slowly, for example after a test on UW I go over all the questions both correct and incorrect, then I go back to the Kplan notes to review each concept and sometimes I even do some research on Wikipedia and take notes if I feel the need to. I study everyday except Sat (time for kids and my family) and I work during the week but not full-time. It's gonna be a year since I'm doing that, my exam is in 2 months.
Sa far I've felt pretty confident, except that the exam pattern has change recently (August 1st 2012) and the feedbacks I had so far make me very nervous, seems like it's different from what we use to see on UW. Anyway it has to be the same concepts....medicine stays medicine.

So what is the 3 digit passing score? I tried doing the UWSA and i got 400/192, just being curious of how much knowledge I gained after 2nd round of UW and first reading of MTB and Kaplan. Will you guys help me what else to do? I'm planning to do second reading of MTB and Kaplan notes. I'm getting depressed after my self assessment.

Oh i haven't check your email yet, so busy this day working, studying and tending to my kids. Thanks for your reply it gave me a boost. Now I'm planning to start again on UW for 3rd round and review Kaplan notes and MTB. Do you think it's ok to take USWA again? Will it be the same questions like the first time i took it? What NBME should I take and when? Thanks!

YES YOU CAN TAKE USWA AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT. I DONT KNOW ABOUT THE MTB. I NEVER HAD IT. AND THE SAME FOR NBME. I HAVE NO IDEA. YOU CAN TAKE IT ANYTIME WITHIN 1 MONTH OF YOUR EXAM.
AND PLEASE CHECK YOUR MAIL AND DO REPLY AT THE EARLIEST POSSIBLE.
THANKS

I'm single and have enough trouble taking care of myself (some days). Couldn't imagine what it would be like to walk in your shoes. Hang in there and know that it will be worth the dedication!
