I felt that gradually my feeling of "knowing everything" went down dramatically, so much so that the day before the exam I felt like I didn't know anything!

The key is to go "out" when you're peaking in terms of knowledge and confidence!

Tranquila amiga... To tell you the truth, I tried to study a little 2 days before and I felt like I had to stick EVERYTHING in my brain and it was very overwhelming. I think it's better to do NOTHING 2 days before the exam. Because if you see something that you don't know 100% you feel like "OMG, I don't know this, OMG I need to read more."

That's my 2 cents. Believe me when you do your exam you'll see. It's A LOT easier that UW and the NBMEs. You'll be fine!

Just think that your 99 is just around the corner. Go kill it!

Suerte!

Pharm is super stupid... I got asked simple things like leuprolide ---> what does it do... In lieu of GnRH. Nothing complex, simple mechanism of action questions. Nothing like NBME, very simple.

FA is MORE than enough for pharm... Really don't worry!
