Did you review the questions you got wrong in Uworld? It seems like you've got deficits in your knowledge base.

Yes I usually go through the answers i get wrong.. I obviously do have a knowledge deficit, as only did fa twice so far...I'm not sure if that's enough

If you're like me, then no. It's not.

Are there particular areas you're not good at?

Thank you slight improvement but still subpar my goal.. I guess usmle (taking after) can make up for a lower comlex score..
Thanks

I'm sorry to hear that. I wish I knew what advice I could offer to help you improve. I can't give any good advice regarding comlex because I have issues with it but I can recommend that you know the lower yield bugs and parasites and how they might present.

I really do recommend that you study and take usmle if you can. Use the scores you get from the practice nbmes and uworld SA to help you figure out if you should take usmle. I may have had comlex issues but I still managed to pass usmle.

Oh, there is something you can try if you haven't already. DirtyUsmle on youtube has some really high yield stuff.
