How was the gross anatomy?

I'm spending a lottt of timing cracking away at it and knowing every little detail, especially considering FA covers NOTHING on anatomy.

I find the Kaplan Qbank questions so far don't go as in depth on anatomy, so I'm worried I may be doing overkill.

@brujaburbuja if the exam is easy then the scoring becomes hard.its a standardized test ,thats why nbme give us a taste of the real thing with a relatively tougher test and a tougher scoring.that is why it underpredicts .

your kaplan qbank % was good.wish u best of luck
