New NBME Six for your CK Prep
by StepTaker 04-23-2013, 09:49 AM

The NBME has released a new NBME Self Assessment Form for the USMLE Step 2 CK Exam preparation. The NBME calls the CK Forms as (Comprehensive Clinical Science Self-Assessment, or CCSSA). They are numbering the new form as Form Six and they retired the previous Form 1. They are saying that form 6 is a modified version of form 1.

The CK forms were 1, 2, 3, and 4. Now we have 2, 3, 4, and 6. I don't know why they missed number 5!

The Step 2 CK NBME forms were not updated since very long time, unlike the Step 1 forms which are frequently updated.

We've added the new Form to our poll here
Best NBME Form for USMLE Step 2 CK

Here's a quote from the official NBME website;
A new form of the Comprehensive Clinical Science Self-Assessment (CCSSA) is now available on the NBME Self-Assessment Services website. CCSSA Form 6, which is a modified version of the newly retired Form 1, is offered in both regular and expanded feedback. This form features a multimedia item that requires Adobe Flash.

NOTE: All forms of CCSSA started on or after April 19, 2013 will appear on a different longitudinal performance profile due to changes in the minimum passing score for Step 2 CK and changes to the CCSSA score scale. In addition, CCSSA forms completed prior to April 19th will not be rescored or compared longitudinally against those started after this date.
