definitely do as many UWorld questions as possible. For me at least UWorld is by far the most efficient/productive/valuable way to learn and understand the material. Just read Step up lightly (a chapter a day is doable) and do questions. I spent about two weeks studying (about a week of that was solid studying) for the shelf using primarily UWorld (honestly did not study at all outside of those two weeks except for presentations and reading about patients) and was very happy with my score.
