Congratulations!!!!
This is just awesome heights! You deserve every point of your score.
I will sit for my test at the end of this month, but haven't taken any evaluation from NBME yet..I can just pay for one...#7 would be best?
I've done 54% of UW and scoring around 57%, what do u suggest.
Thnx; u'll be missed on this forum.

Congrats boi!

I'm guessing you're already out there celebrating, so no need to tell you to do that.

Just make sure to come back in one piece and help those of us who have our exams soon!

Have my exam in a month, but I already finished UW.
Should I renew it and keep doing questions until my exam (even though it will be second time) or just focus on my FA and UW notes and NBMES and UWSA2, because i did UWSA1 already.??????

A month is alot of time to improve! I would do 11 or 12 since they are the most recent, and I thought my test was most similar to 12. Keep doing USMLE, make sure to read the explanations and read FA, I only managed to finish 70% of UW scoring 63% if I remember correctly, and I think I could have scored even higher if i had finished it and reviewed my wrong answers. Good luck!

I wouldn't repeat UW, I would get Kaplan Qbank or USMLERx if I needed more questions. I think your plan sounds great, just keep pushing on!

thanx in advance
During the last few weeks I did UW and FA, and really worked on my weak areas. Amazingly, my weakest areas when I started my prep (immuno, respro & endocrine, GI, etc) were my strongest scores. I put all my notes- UW, qbank, etc, in FA, so that's all I used in the last few weeks. In the end I was mostly doing my weak areas subject wise from UW because I didn't have enough time to finish all the questions (only 70% completed, think I would have scored even better if i had time to do all the question ) The key for me was that every question I did in UW, I made sure i completely understood the explanation, so up until a few days before my test it was still taking me at least 2 hours to review a block of questions.
I don't know about Conrad fisher's ethics, I've heard it's good. What worked for me was doing all the ethics questions in Qbank subject wise. Good luck!
