hi sasi

ur score is descent, its not bad at all..

if you dont mind could you please tell us how u prepared for the exam???

if you dont mind could you please elabortate about the exam??

1- DID YOU FIND UW help you answer the questions with ease? If you did so, can you please give us an example on how did it help you answer the Q.
I mean where u able to answer the Question because u learnt the concept from uw????

2-how many times did you go thru uw. did you write notes for every Q u did in uw?am asking this because i feel like i have been writting alot of notes from 1 Q itself and i feel its time consuming.

please do share your views on the above Q

thanks!
GL

Thumbs Up step 1 prep

hi, thanks for ur reply... praise god. this is wat i did. my prep time-7 months,invariably i didnt studied after 7 maximum 7.30pm. nothing gets into ur folder after this time. also i had akid to take care. i gave a quick rerading to kaplan notes and listened lectures, but i swear FA is the book of choice.. i dont know how many times i read may 7-8 times i guess. and stick to UW ,since i didnt work out anyother q bank i did it thrice. also dont forget nbme recent series...i saw aquiet lot of q from nbme as such word by word and same histo pics.so dont miss it.
The concepts tested in actual exam is very much similar to UW and nbme. nothing deviated.so take time to understand uw and fa. i suggest u better take notes from uw, if u think its time consuming add only the educational point given at the end of the answers. but never feel lazy to take notes from it.
Try to give a nbme online 1 month before the exam so that u might know where u stand, which to concentrate. after 15 days give another one, if u think u ve really improved give the exam orelse please postpone it. nbme is a accurate in predicting our actual score.. i got 216 and 212 in nbme 11 and 12..
alas hard work really pays, nothing can beat this.
one Mistake i did was-
i slept in noon times not regularly but i sometimes did , my body reflected the same on the day of exam, i felt so dull after the 4 and 5th blocks
on the day of exam eat lil i know u know these bvut from my part a lil more advice is take break for each and every block.. have a bite in each break thnat way u dont feel hunger and also will not be full rather u feel energetic.
hope wat i shared would help u
stick to FA , UW, NBMEs, its more thn enough.
let god be with u and guide u in watever u do.
all the best .
