Well, I've been working on this for awhile now. My schedule is whacky, because I'm taking COMLEX and USMLE with a couple weeks in between, and I had to plan around other school activities.

I know this sounds totally insane, and there's no way in hell I can actually do it all......but if I can even get most of it done I think I'll be good.

Wow, that seems like WAY too many resources. Are you really going to be able to get through all of that? I'm taking the approach that it's better to know fewer (key) resources, but know them very well. Some of the books you have listed seem redundant or just overkill.

But, what do I know, I'm in the same position as you.

I've seen a lot of schedules on here that were above and beyond anything I could ever do, but that schedule is ridiculous.

My favorite part is in phase 3...where among about 20 other things you are going to complete all of BSS, Qbank, WebPath, and Robbins Review. Dude, that is almost 8,000 questions.

Actually I've already worked through Robbins review and Web-path. I'm just going to hit them again-real quick.

Yeah getting through all of BSS and all the other stuff is likely impossible, and the review books are meant more to study my own particular weak areas and supplement my doing questions--except HY series which I plan on reading cover to cover.

I'm NOT a gunner--hence the overcompensation!

I'm one crazy mo-fo.

:laugh:
