Smile my step 1 experience

Thank you all for your support. I'm an IMG , graduated in 2010, started preparing for step 1 in September,2011.
Materials I used:
1.Kaplan video: All subjects -1 time
2.Kaplan Lecture notes - 3 times - first along with the video, then just before starting uworld and finally 2 weeks before my exam.
3.First Aid- several revisions- added notes into FA while doing Uworld.
4.Goljan Audio and Pathology Rapid Review- liked it better than Kaplan Pathology.
5.Uworld - 3 month subscription -all questions- 60% unused, timed.

UWSA 1 - 211/470 - 1 month before my exam
UWSA-2 -244/620 -2 weeks before exam- after this I stopped reading new material and just spent time revising what i had already learnt.
NBME 7-219/490
NBME 11- 226/520
I did both the NBME 7 & 11- back to back on the same day- trying to mimic the actual exam timings and breaks..this was 3 days before my real exam.
USMLE Sample test- 82% -day before exam.
Exam date - 20th March,2012
Result- 239/85

I did not use any other materials other than those mentioned above.
Doing 2 NBME's on same day helped me a lot I think..to stay alert the whole time .. exam day went well.. was able to finish all blocks in time ..though I could not review marked questions for 3 of my blocks..
Honestly I came out pretty dazed and got frustrated trying to recollect questions and my answers.. finally gave up left everything to God.
I'm very happy with my score and would be happy to answer any questions.
Once again Thankyou all for your support.. and good luck!!
