Default step 1 experience 212

*I m going to write my experience that might help others.
Materials used:
Anatomy..fa& uworld
Micro..fa & uworld
Biostats and behviour...fa & uworld(dont make this mistake)
HY neuroanatomy
Pathology..pathoma & goljan transripts.did audio for couple of units then read only transcripts for rest.
Physiology..brs
Immumo..again fa & uworld
Biochemistry..KLN


Studied for almost year but with lots of distractions.
Nbme 7 ,6 months ago 92/200
Then nbme 11,12,13(1 month ago) 135-140 correct.
did all of them offline.
Last month focused on fa, pathoma and goljan transcripts.
I found real exam easier than nbme.few qs straight from pathoma, fa .to summarize 80% from fa and pathoma
Biostasts and behaviour was heavily tested.at least 3,4 qs in every block.roughly 5 experimental qs.

so i would say do biostats really well.dont forget to do free 150.
Wish u all a very gud luck and dont get discouraged by getting low scores in nbme.

Thanks
time was not a problem for me.i completed every block with 15 mins left and in those 15 mins i looked up for marked ones except in last block where i got lots of weired qs and was short of time.so if u dont know answer just mark it and move on.and for breaks
After 2 blocks took break for 5 min then
3,4 and 5 block and break for 5 mins.
6 block break for 20 mins
and then last block.
