Warning! Do not get scared by this forum

hi guys
good luck to everyone
please do not make the mistake of reading people's posts about how difficult the exam is becoming etc ie ppl trying to scare u or tell u things that are not true
dont read too much into forums
and just do what u think is right
it is good to come here for some advice regarding prep tips but not for other reasons for eg failure rate in testing centers for cs or img matching rate decreasing...dont listen to these posts
this is just based on my experiences from this forum (3 yrs now)
gl all

Default being confident

I have to disagree. People sharing their experience negative or positive, and its only how YOU take it, negative might be a warning, pointing to other people's mistakes you dont want to repeat on your test. If its not true, why do you believe in it then? Negatives might help you to be prepared for all kind of surpises you must face in the real test. Im blessed I discovered this forum, because Im an IMG as most of us, but never heard about NMBE, I wish I woulve found it out earlier, my scores woudve been better.....Its about you're being confident... thats all.... and good luck to all of us!

Definitely look to others' experience as a rough guide i.e. learn from others mistakes.
But when it comes to exams as tough as the USMLE, self confidence and a deep desire and belief in yourself are CRUCIAL; avoid anything that will hurt confidence and self belief.

Better freed by truth than happy in ignorance.

1.- Browse the forums
2.- Feel devastated with your actual chances
3.- Come back stronger with determination and focus
4.- Achieve your goals

A positive attitude is paramount to achieve your goals, but a rude wake up call is needed to get there
