How did that go? Was it FA-facts based if HLA was asked?

I will post my detailed exam experience once i get my score coz then it would have more value. As for now, I can tell you this. Three things that really helped me during the exam was FA (know this inside out), Uworld (infact some questions looked copy paste from uworld) and pathoma.
Even if you don't do pathoma, try to understand everything, don't just memorize blindly. And secondly, exam questions were very fair but every section had atleast 1 wtf questions.

I am happy to answer if you have any questions

Wow some ppl say that you don't really have to go through first aid but i guess it depends on each exam separately. Did you do pathoma? I was thinking of subscribing to it. How did you find it? How long did it take you to go through it all and when did you do it ? like 2 weeks before ur exam etc?

Thanks!

First Aid is a must. Pathoma was very very helpful coz when you understand something you don't necessarily have to memorize it. During my school years I did goljan too (some chapters). Goljan ain't bad either but the problem with goljan is its loooong. So yea, if you can do pathoma, do it. It's gold especially when it comes to general pathology and heme and blood section.

And you can do whole pathoma in 3 days (second or third time). I only watched the vidoes so it didn't take me that long

Oh wow! I saw on the website that its 35 hours of videos!! You finished those in 3 days? Thats more than 10 hours per day I will try to get pathoma soon and try it out for myself. When you got the videos subscription didnt you go over the book? They send you a book as well right ...

What do you mean by "fair"
You didnot feel that they were trying to trick you or you didnot have to guess between 2 exactly same looking answers?

Thank you!

I watched them at 1.7x and yes they do sent you the book. I went over the book only once early in my preparation. I like videos better than books coz i tend to fall asleep when I am reading the book

Thank you!
I personally hated the NBME questions especially the old forms. Real exam questions were more similar to uworld but their difficulty level were between uworld and nbme. So I think they were lot fair than some dumb nbme questions Like there were no 'cartoonish-diagram-like questions'

And I don't think my exam had any experimental questions. Maybe one question. All other questions were well written. And no they weren't tricky questions. I don't know, that's how i feel.

Also, i always find that when you watch the videos at a higher speed, it starts to sound like a chipmunk lecture LOL Does dr. sattar go at a good slow pace or is he like dr jenkins from dit who goes by really fast .

Dr. Sattar's pace is really slow so when you listen to him at 1.7x he sounds normal trust me!
videos are based on the book, so yea u have to pause every now and then.

Cool. Thanks for the info. how long do you think it will take me, if I go over Pathoma videos including the book + my notes I made in the Kaplan pathology book .. that would definitely make pathology one of my strong areas. I'm planning on giving pathology 7 to 10 days and then starting DIT right after.

I never used kaplan pathology book, so idk about that. But, if you do pathoma for the first time, it could take you somewhere between 10-15 days.
