My guess is they have people (these could be medical students) sit the exam and update them on the latest changes or what not.

That being said, I hear half the folks say the real deal is quite different from UW type of q's, while the other half says it was very similar.

Yeah I heard the same. I guess it all depends on your luck. I hope I get all micro and patho so direct questions and not anatomy or physio (gasp)
