Just take it easy, noone says it will be easier, but dont listen to your friends... That's not a friend whoever tell you to give up your dreams...

PLease get yourself up ! and take your time,, remember there are a lot of things that can happen during the time taking an exam... please revise your First AID over the LOWER subject on your NBME after that go over uworld and do test over that particular one so you can assure what you have done...

Re-read FA do DIT or Goljan if you havent... and Get ready... you are almost there.... with 2 weeks fully stud giving you enough time during the week to REST properly and have CALM you will achieve above 500 soon!... 550 = above 92 in USMLE...

Btw, 460 NBME = around 86 over the real EXAMEN but to be sure you get above 90!!


Here is the USMLE CORRELATED TABLE

Take care bro,, Keep it up!! Just HAve Confidence, commit and you will Succed!

Relax Priya !!......................tell ur friend to go F$## himself ......................Dont talk to any ppl who is depressing or gives u bad vibes now !!cut them all out


Ok about the score....read Bassatom Prep method............he got just 396 two month before exam in nbme but he pulled thru and got 256/99 in step 1 exam..............So relax !!


Whens ur exam ??...if its closeby postpone it .............since u have been a good student maybe its not the studies part...............so take two days break....check out ur weak areas in nbme......and get advises from ppl who wrote the exam recently


I suggest docmonster,harlesmd and bassatom.............pm them and get good advice on how to improve

3-don't be so worry about what your parents gonna do,i'm sure they love you.they will be more happy than you when you pass your step 1.
DON'T GIVE UP .

Agree with everything everyone else is saying - I've seen people get 460 on their final NBME and actually a 90 on exam day - I've seen it happen...

In the meanwhile - You should use full stops in your sentences

Hi Priya1, I have replied your PM. I just want to add some points here. It's very important to do Qbanks in timed-mixed questions mode, I dont need to explain why, you can figure it out yourself.

At the beginning, you can do it subject-wise but as your exam is approaching, you have to practice simulating the real exam. In my case, I used Qbook to test my knowledge subject-wise. I will reserve Kaplan or UW Qbank later after I finish revising all subjects.

In addition, I am against the idea of using NBME very early. Do NBME 1 month before your scheduled exam date because that's the latest time when you can change your exam date without being charged a fee. Based on your NBME performance, you can determine what your weak subjects are and this is your last chance to improve them. Do another NBME 1 week before your exam for final prediction. If you want to do all NBME forms, just do it offline, the idea is to get you accustomed to the exam style questions. The real exam is similar to NBME 6 and 7 in term of questions length and level of difficulty. I can guarantee they are not as difficult as UW.

Good luck
