Smile God Thank you so much. Got my score. 243 (99)

I got my score back today and is a 243 (99).
I'm so happy.
I just have to say thank you God, you were with me in every step.
Also very happy because I always have the support of my wonderful husband, my parents, my sister and my in law family.
This is a very stressful journey and you need all the support from the people you love.

Kaplan qbank is good in physiology and It helped me to warm up with questions before starting UW.
Also is good to do it because exam can be similar to it and to UW at the same time.
I just don't understand how some people say the exam was like UW or Kaplan. Honestly I feel both qbanks are good and I can not say wich one was more like my real exam.
I felt my exam was a mix of everything, UW, Kaplan, NBMES, and some questions similar to UWSA.
So just to make sure if you can do both do both. Is alwasy better to do more than less.

Everyone can do it. Just work hard.

Kaplan Online.
Prep it depends on every person.
Some people take 5,6,10 months. Other people 1 year.
It all depends on how many things you do.
If you do all qbanks, kaplan, FA, goljan book and audio it will be longer.
Just depends on you.
Don't start getting stress about time. Just take your time until you feel comfortable enough to take the exam, at the end of the day residency programs will not judge you for how long your prep was, they will judge you for how good your performance was.

Kaplan for physion is good. For Neuroanatomy is good too. For general anatomy not that much.
For pathology I used FA and some goljan, not all. I read kaplan for pathology, but I did kaplan for all subjects just once.
It all depends on your backround in pathology.

If you have to skip one between physiopath and pathology, skip pathology since I think Physio is very important from kaplan.

I did One NBME at 50% of UW and also a week after I think I did UWSA1.
When I Finished UW I started doing NBMES one each week until the exam. Also did UWSA2 like 5 days before exam.
My accumulatives is Kaplan qbank where 69% and in UW 72%.
NBMES all said 99, except for the first one wich said 97 or 98 (not sure).
All dpends in your goals and the score you want.

First congrats!!!

Second I see you did NBME 3 first, I plan on doing all the NBME online before I write the test I was wondering which one is the best one to start with? This would be after USMLERx and Kaplan is done but not UW.

First of all, congratulations for the wonderful score!

I need some assistance in how I should go about. My exam is 10 days later. I don't feel like studying anymore (death of a close friend yesterday and terminally ill health of a beloved). I am done with my Uworld with a 74%. I am doing FA. I did NBME 12 on the second day that I started my Uworld and I got 190, which really demoralized me. Well, I feel more comfortable after finishing the Uworld. But, I don't know what to do now. I want to finish FA once more and take NBME 11,7,6 online. DOes that sound fine? What should I do for neuroanatomy ?

Please help with this!

Do an NBME asap. Depending on this you can either decide if you take exam or change date.
To do this exam you have to be in a perfect state of mind. You should feel good before walking into the center, if you emotionaly don't feel good, take some time to recuperate and then take exam.

Thanks for replying. I'm taking form #11 in 10 days.... I bought the extended feedback for form #6 and I don't understand this breakdown cuz'..one question falling under more than one category...plus it tells me that my lowest is GI. But I only had 4 q's wrong on GI whereas pathology had 30q's wrong...so i guess they decide on lowest by calculating wrongs from the total # of q's...like if GI had total of 6 q's i got 4 wrong that's 30% correct...and for path there were 100q's and i got 30 q's wrong ..that's 70% correct... now I'm confused...is it the GI or pathology that's my weakest????

Congratulations!! This is an awesome score!
You said somewhere above that KLN are not good for general/gross anatomy. Did you use any other book instead that you can recommend?

Study the whole chapter of GI from FA. That's what I used to do when I got a weakness in a specific system.

No, I just studied anatomy from kaplan. I said that is not enough because I had some leg and arm muscle questions that where not in kaplan. But there where only like 3 questions in the whole exam. Don't get stressed about that.
