Last month before taking CK Please I need advice

Hi Doctors,

I am taking my CK at the end of March. I went over the Kaplan books, and I re-listened to Goljin just once to help me recall my own notes. I also read through my FA for Step 1 to simply refresh my memory. I am using Masters of the Boards trying to do 3 USMLE work Q banks a day and reviewing 2 subjects a day. I am scoring roughly about 60% I still need to time everything but I like taking notes when reading the answers. I am almost done with the Qbank and I wanted to go through it again.

My questions:

1) I get one shot at this, do you think if I keep at it I will be ok for the exam?
2) Have a done enough? because sometimes I feel that I haven't or maybe I am underestimated how much material I know. I have been studying between rotations and I finished my Online MBA in October 2012 so you can only imagine the exhaustion.
3) Is masters of the board a good review in sync with Kaplan?
4) Any advice?

Thank you so much. I am so exhausted Allah only knows but I am sure we have all been there. Thank you so much in advance for your advice and encouragement. I wish you all the best.

Exhaustion is not good in this case. Try to take restng periods and make sure you are not stress while you are taking them .
Focus on UW Q bank and if you need to go back for something to solidify then open MTB.
As much as you do Qs as much as you will be in good shape in the exam.
Stop taking a lot of notes bc thats a time consuming .
Make the blocks timed and random , being quick in the exam is the key success .

Good luck.
