Smile Oti Nogonno Step 1 experience

This forum gave me a lot & now its my turn to give it something!
At first I want to say that I am not a high scorer & I believe that everyone are not like that.
I have to say my background, my YOG 3.5 yrs..(may be old.. though I don't think so)!..preparation started on June, 2011.
I studied for on an average 5 days a week 5/6 hours..! & weekends no study..(actually a lot other things to do....)!
Exam taken on 16th December..!
I can say that my exam was fair..some are very lengthy questions & some are not! Behavioral science & bio stat was my weakest areas & I messed up that portion as far I can remember..!
So now just praying that those were not real ques..:sorry:!
Main portion of the exam was pathology about 60% I should say..pharmacology and microbiology most of the questions were pretty straight forward..!
I dint see a lot of physiology questions..my first block was horrible..but I kept myself cool! so my advice would be don't panic..stay cool as much as possible, that's also a way to do better..!
There are a lot of tricky questions & no of ways to mislead u..so I want to say that read the question & at first think the answer if its on the answer choices then that's it..if u want to read all choices you may get confused..!
I don't know how was my preparation ..I would describe that after my result..!
but materials were like others Kaplan Lecture Notes, FA and USMLE World & Goljan
Anatomy questions some were easy ..& others I don't know...!
My conclusion is plz whatever you read try to understand it..its mainly a conceptual exam..if Ur conception is strong nothing can beat u...
all my best wishes for upcoming examinees...& also pray for me..plzz:sorry:!
thank u all...thanks to this forum for every support on my way to step 1.

plz feel free to ask any questions....i will try to ans at my best.
