Default done with step 1

Hi guys,

Just completed long journey with long exam.
I am feeling very much relaxed now.
I am very much thankful to you all for your support.

Just some advice:
  • Do FA by heart --dont miss even a single word.-They are just testing that how much you read FA
  • UW +FA are enough for 220+ .for more than 230 ,do kaplan. I got many questions from kaplan.
  • Read questions carefully upto last word. sometimes they gave major clue in just last word.

I got many questions from behaviour science about 10-12 or more(all were about physician best response type questions) and that was the weakest subject though practicing very much .

Biochemistry questions -mostly from FA.
Immuno - i felt i have given disappointed performance in immuno as they have twisted many questions and FA was not definitely enough.
Psychiatry questions were simple straight from FA.

Got some questions from NBME , some from Usmle 150 .

Just study hard + do FA 5- 6 times ( i did 4 times,still i felt it not enough).
Practice as many questions as you can.

Actually I have no idea how i performed in today`s exam as i have so many doubts about questions ..so cant predict how much i will get .

Thanks.
