Kudrath MD. (Physiology teacher from Kaplan) would say schedule your test 8-12 weeks if you did Kaplan diagnostic test >60%

Was the kaplan diagnostic test reflective of your weak subjects in the nbmes? Thanks!

Before I started studying, I got a 46% on the Kaplan diagnostic and 192 on UWSA 1.

After about 2 weeks of full-time studying, I got 83% on the USMLE Free 150 (the meaning of that is somewhat contentious). At this point, I was averaging about 53-54% on UWorld.

After about 3-4 weeks of full-time studying, I got a 57% on the new Kaplan diagnostic (with different questions but similar difficulty)

After about 5 weeks of full-time studying, I got a 230 on UWSA 2. At this point, I was averaging about 61-62% on my last 300 questions on Kaplan/UWorld.
