CONGRATULATIONS< GREAT SCORE
My UW avg was 68% in random timed mode...
I gave only nbme 11 which was 20 days before the exam and got 226.
I did Kaplan notes and Goljan pathology 2 reads...
Then started UW and FA side by side...
Read FA 3 times and revised the wrong questions from UW...
I listened to goljan audio whenever i got time...
That is all!

One day before exam I revised some easily forgettable topics... Had a good night's sleep and was pretty relaxed before my exam...
In the exam, I took breaks after each block... found the first block a bit tough... Rest were pretty fine, but at the end of exam I was quite confused about how I performed... I even left 1 question unattempted in one of the blocks as while i was thinking on it, time was over... so i would advice everyone to answer all the questions and mark those which you are not sure of but at least pick any one option and mark it... then come back and think on them... This way even if time goes short, you have at least marked something.

Thank you!
Yes I think they covered all important concepts and as everyone says some questions are always experimental...
I did not use kaplan videos or any other books...
I did Goljan RR and audio for pathology... Rest only Kaplan notes, UW and FA!
For neuroanatomy images i referred to snell's neuroanatomy and few online neuroimages sites...

For ethics I went through Conrad's... For biostats kaplan and UW is enough... I didnt get any tough biostats questions.... Ethics questions you will learn with time as you go through more and more of them...
I did two reads of kaplan and goljan... then started uw and fa...
you should revise fa as many times as you can...

Congratulations for the great score. I have few questions and your answers would be highly apreciated.
It took you how long to prepare for step1
I am starting with Kaplan notes and for some subjects I use the videos but informations don't stick I find it hard to memorize without doing questions. I will definitely do qbanks but planning to start them after I finish reading the subjects. was your first read in depth read with memorizing or just superficial?

Wish you the best for the rest of your path and an excellent match
