Default Calculations on Step 1

I wanted to ask what the most common calculations are asked on the exam?

Also, how can I practice them? I feel memorizing formula is not enough, sometimes you have to practice one or two times to answer the question correctly in the actual exam?

Usually PPV, NPV, Sensitivity, Specificity, all that stuff from biostats. Sometimes they'll ask questions that just require common sense like entropy, etc. Uworld + NBMEs is the way to go! Other than that, HY biostats and Uworld Biostats notes.

Thanks! Is there a way I can practice these concepts online somewhere besides UW and NBME?

Thanks
