Default Step1 result: 98/228

dear all,
first i want to thank every1 in the forum its a gr8 place..
now i'll briefly tell u about my experience:
first read: kaplan+DVD's+Goljan audios and book
second read: kaplan + Qbank(woudn really recommend to u guys)
third read: kaplan plus FA , Uworld
fourth read: FA + online Uworld mixed timed
final read: uworld notes and FA
NBME 3 weeks b4 exam : 233-550
rest did NBME 5 & 6 offline scored around 160+ Q's rite out off 200
did free 150 too b4 exam.

NOW THE EXAM DAY:
exam is not that tough dont complicate it for urself but they hit hard on basic concepts,obv there are some tough and confusing ones....try not to make silly mistakes i.e dont be over confident.exam is exam!....and rest it is all about consistency and compliance....try to go fresh to exam...i took breaks after every 2blocks...and i'd advise every1 to plan their breaks carefully...and thirdly result is unpredictable...dont overestimate urself...all my NBME's over predicted my score bt fr some they underpredict too so dont freak out...

SO BEST OF LUCK ALL U GUYS!!.

I didnt even notice that! I read it as "WOUD really recommend to you guys".

No wonder I make stupid mistakes in questions!

kaplan Qbank is just pure hard core recall...whereas Uworld qbank is the REAL THING!!!.....n best to do it online n mixed....
FA is VERY useful(bt only whn u use it as a revision tool n u can understand what it says in each line)....
about NBME i just did NBME7 online rest were offline....i found my exam a lil easier then NBME7....thou i scored less in the real exam...bt i would still say the closet to the real exam are the latest NBME's..n even free 150...cuz u mite find the practice tests easy but if u check ur answers u'd still b doing around 80% Q's rite....so all of them are quite balanced...

GUD luck guys...n thanx for wishing me luck..cuz i need the confidence boost ahead
