Default my experience!!

finally got my results yesterfday and was relieved to know that it was on par with the nbmes inspite of the wretched feeling that one is left with after the exam.

materials used: kln, first aid, uworld, fisher 100 cases, goljan rapid review.

duration: less than a year.

mock tests:
uwsa 1- 242 2 months before
nbme 15- 243 1 month before
nbme 16- 240 3 weeks before
nbme 7- 244 2 weeks before
nbme 12- 243 1 week before
nbme 13 - 249 5 days before
fred - 89% 3 days before
main exam- 244
the day of the exam: i went a couple of days before the exam to verify what all documents were needed and they did mention the prometric appointment slip so do take that along.
i was there right on time and was ushered in immedciately to begin the exam . i would have preferred going a ten mins early to catch my breath n relax a little bit.
coming to the exam all topics were covered , the behavioral ones were incredulous and nothing i read helped . so thats just a gamble i'd say.
For the other subjects , read kaplan and first aid and you're good to go.
i had the usual mix of histology slides,xrays , mris , some ecgs as was mentioned in other posts and heart sounds.
first aid first aid first aid.. the most important book, period.
also look up cts and xrays as u read a topic.
overall the exam is doable. dont get yourself worked over it . use the nbmes to guide you .

and the wait.. it wasnt that bad . i resigned myself to the fact that i didnt do that well and that i'd get a low score and yesss i did it!! i got 244!!

so good luck to all you guys and just keep cool.
