Embarrassed Shyangel18 Exam Experience!

Jus got back form the exam!!
it was DOABLE!!! went Good by the grace of Allahh!!
for those taking the exam soon. keep a calm its all abt CONFIDENCE and STAMINA in the end
NBME 11/12 concepts were tested heavily.. in a simpler way
exam was easier than nbme 11/12.. more like NBME 7. couple of Blocks were tough, but nothing u Dont know. An active mind is all that is needed to cum to the diagnosis. i was Heavily tested on RESPO.. very few CTz , 2 heart sounds ( one was normal hear sound so make sure u kno that too!) one ECG - heart blockk.. Know all ur respo examination findings COLD..

Anatomy was twisted.. more of Upper Limb MUSCLES and PERINEUM stuff. but Kaplan Anatomy z enuff.. i wasnt tested much on Neuro, which makes me sad. cuz i love neuro. only 2 cross sections! then there was stuff abt Cauda equina, conus medullaris.kno all that stuff ..

Biochem was v easy v basic. FA is more than enuff..

Micro i got couple of those Parasites we hate, Leishmania entrobius n all.. but overall easy!

CVS was super easy.. murmurs were prettty much identifiable based on scenarios!

Immuno couple of tricky qz on Omenn syndrome .. Bare lymphocyte syndrome.. make sure u do Immuno from Kaplan..

Physio was all over. HIGLY RECOMMEND doing Kaplan Physio thoroly ,including V/Q graphs it was all there, endo Vit D def , Git physio

overall UW + FA + Kaplan Notes is all u need!!!
this is my 0.2% of input!! goodluckk
n m offf to ZUMBAAALAAAANNNNDD... TIME TO PARTYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAA

Congrats on being done. Been following the forum for few weeks now, but rarely post messages. Nice exam exp.

My exam is next week.

I have done NBME 11. Should I do 7 or 12. Can only do one.

How was Mol bio and genetics? Is FA and UW enough for both?

id suggest take NBME 12!! because there were concepts which were repeated.. and if u r ready try doing NBME & offline ( ie if u dont want to spend on another NBME) but for now go with NBME 12

Mol Bio was easy... genetics was twisted. FA + UW z not enoug a few were easy ones but there a couple of those lousy ones as welll

Behav science was my avg subject too.. i did evrything from Kaplanure notes lect + UW + FA + Kaplan Qbank ( online- i got it from a friend who was done using it.. used it for Behav sciences n micro only ) and i also did Conrad Fischers Ethics book!!
BUT THE QUESTIONS WERE EXTREMELY STUPID!!! like lietrally no top or bottom.. most of them. except for a couple nothing which i cud remebr studyng abt. they were absurd n totaly radiculous. like seriously. oh yeah i hav Done all those NBMEz qz too offline/ online.. exam qz were horrible!!
