Default just a week away from the result...

After 6 months of solid hardwork came 14th sept 2011...the day of exam..
nervous initially but as the blocks went on i felt that i slowly fell into groove and then after a couple of nervous but decent enough blocks there was no looking back and the time raced past and i soon realized that i was on the last block..well after 234 in UWSA1 ,224 in NBME 12,and 253 in UWSA 2 i am confident but still i m eagerly waiting for 5th oct which is expected date of my result..chi!!! my hand are gonna shake as i i ll open my gmail hat day
but i ll be happy to answer any of your questions about my experience or the exam?

b)Uworld one time 100 percent and then jus wrong and marked ones..used it as a learning tool only...

c)FA didnt read..jus abt a 100 pages of it of behav and immuno..and whatever i felt i should

q2) How many hours did u study per day??12 to 14

q3) did u take any long breaks in your 6 month prep(week or more), plus did u study 7 days a week....or took a weekend off?..went to USA for 15 days in may but i used to study every day of the week,rarely a day off(like once or twice a month off)..had the deadline of sep set.. so..

q4) what was your last month strategy...give tests each wednesday either nbme or uwsa...hit the weaker topics,understand them and learn from the former mistakes and sustain the strong points..

q5) On NBME what was your weakest subject and how did u overcome weaknesses?behav and genetics

q6) can u tell how was genetics and Molecular Bio on your exam? and how did u prepare for these??
both of them were standard and not hard if you thoroughly know kaplan..for these i did kaplan,did extra ques of kaplan qbank for more practice.nothing special..i feel if one is very good with kaplan he can surely pull of more than 90 %n ques in any subject (except for patho)

get the offline kaplan q bank from the net..its not worth doin whole...U world is the ultimate q bank for usmle and i suggest you dont go for kaplan online..jus go thru some subjects in which you feel you need more practice..behaviour and biostat would be a good prac on kaplan..all the best
