ALLHAMDULILLAH
people usually view the threads with 99 scores only
im really proud of this score because i constantly scored really poor in nbmes
nbme 12 score 191
nbme 6 score 208
nbme 11 score 197
USWA 1 score 209
i was in a bad shape n then postponed my date n started working hard not only on weak areas but also focused on repeating everything again n again
i used to worry a lot cos everyone say nbme are predictors of ur final score but thanx to my freind she encouraged me to take nbme as learning tool n knowing ur weak areas..in my xam experiences post also i advised to work on the concepts tested in nbmes..
i had no idea in these days wat to expect
seeeing the result i m happy to see how much i ve improved n this is my real successs
CHEER UP! all those who re ving trouble in nbmes u r ur best analyst n there is a vioce inside u which tells u when ur ready for the test n work hard till u hear that vioce n then give the test as i did!!!!

ok i graduated in 2007 n then did my housejob in from 2008-2009 after i got married i came to usmle i work in OBGYN hosp.
regarding questions
1.my preperation plan...it took 8-9months(i wasted a lot of time)
i started slow i was not with well defined plan. the best thing was ving really good study partners n i first went thru kaplan videos n kaplan notes then used to discuss it..i used Golgan for patho n for anatomy SNELL review.
i used printed Q banks (thts illegal ) but they re available in paki i used both kaplan n U world..i started FA earlier n compiled all the points from Kaplan into it as we all know FA is not enough..i switched to Q bank U world quite late n realised watever i had done from went in waste cos u must do some q too after every topic to get grip on topic so my advice """start q bank as soon as possible" wen i started q bank pathology i realised i had no idea wat the question were about so i started using it as learning tool n added points in FA too..i must say, try to keep things simple i see people going after too many things to study i did dat too but at the end FA came to my rescue n when i postponed i didnt touch any new thing i jus did FA i did kaplan immunology n genetics n golgan n videos also (great help) i joined gunnerstraining too n i used tro test from the site daily.. in first week after xtension i marked all the topics i have to go thru i went thru ll the nbmes n tried to do the questions on my own n i did suceed in dat too
i used to study the whole topic asked in q
i was in love with FA in last 10 days i went thru videos for CT n MRI from You tube n yes whenever i used to go thru any neuro or muscular disorder i used to go thru vdos .i made sure i know all the receptors cell biology was weak area for me in every nbme so i even watched vdos on tht
in last two weeks i went thru golgan i did all figures n tables for physio in kaplan n BRS i did all the figure for anatomy from kaplan i studied clincal cases from snell.all the fractures especially i revised marked q from q banks i did offline nbme 7 1 n 2 i was actually scared to perform low so i did it offline i wud say though i performed well but i still ve doubts on ans keys available so make sure u dnt ruin ur concepts on these keys n YES this forum i must say it was great help try to do max q i used to reply to every possible q except in last week wen i ws short of time but this forum is the BEST!!!
my plan is not defined infact it ws actually like tht really ill defined n thjt ws my mistake i cud ve done everything in max 6 months
i must tell u tht in my college we never had MCQs n so attempt such xam pattern was also new for me n i give credit to my study partner she helped me in tht..
i took off from job fr the last 6 weeks so its possible even if ur working n i also went thru a post where someone had issues regarding in laws forcing for the test n she failed it... i wud say it ws the same fr me i was constantly under pressure i was working here n fr two months this year i was given charge of hosp fr 24 hrs to work as gyneac due to some reason i was forced to quit one thing either job or xam but i was determined to continue both cos we re doctors n we must be strong enough to run career n personnel life n wanted to do everything on my terms n i did n even wen i wnted to postponed i had presuure to give test cos as my in laws said i shall land up with poor score as they think those who study 12hrs for 8 moths get 90ss so i must say NO how much time u spend does nt matter hw well u work on a subject is imp
i ve learnt a lot frm this experience n shall work better in futur
so the moral of the story is do not depend solely on nbmes n low nbme doesnt mean ur dead n u cnt do anything n also stay simple in ur plans n do all nbmes all re high yeild n my xam was like older forms
in my test performance graph i gt with result i ve star in immune system histology n nuitrion n respiration n genetics (these re where i used to perform poor in nbme) n i ve colliapsed in behavioral sc i had really poor performance n thts mailny bcoz i did nt ve dvds so work on it n do the q from forum
thanxxxxx tht ws really long anymore q re welcomed oh yes i can be ur agony aunt tooo im good at it

Thanks for sharing your experience,yes its really hard to study for such an exam after marriage ,experiencing the same situation,my exam in Nov,I started doing mcqs now after studying for about 8 to 9 months and performing very badly on mcqs, even about the subjects which I think I know the best,I am lost . Now thinking I should to have started doing Mcqs early,its my biggest mistake.

Anyways your experience encouraged me...
