Arrow Step 1 long story short!

hey!

i gave my step1 1 today.

i've read a lot here.posted a lot.and now its my time.so here's what i think about the exam...

the exam is all about the concepts.and how clear you are with them.they bend and twist the question.confuse you.do everything they can to make you think twice and be confused.so please be solid with them,no point mere muggin things up!wont get you anywhere!

besides FA, uw is the highest yeid.lot of questions were directly picked up from there.and yes NME 7,11 AND 12 too.


some question were bouncers,but then there is always so much to learn.and its a continuous process...all in all its great learning experience altogether.i am glad i gave the exam.

i think 1 question was directly form HY behav cs too.

whatever score i get. i will satisfied.

...now its time do catch with all the thing i missed in the past 8 months...


best of luck everybody.study hard.its worth it!

same as there were as in uworld.

if you do just anatomy KLN videos.you will be good.esp the video at the last in which he discusses the different ct's and mri.

you could HY NEURO TOO.

i got about 4 ct's and mri.

I agree

This is my first time in this forum. My exam is in dec. I read kaplan books all 7 months back, had to take abreak. Now revising first aid and UW. Doing UW the second time. Not doing bad.
1q- Even is the concept twisted in different ways, if FA and UW have all/enough material to answer them? I don't think I remember anything from Kaplan.
2q.Did you do Kaplan Q bank?

Thanks so much and good luck.......

yes. FA and UW cover all the concepts..except some really bizzare question....well the concepts are the same but the choices are confusing so know them well to rule out the options.

nope. i didnt do kaplan q bank.

best of luck.
