Arrow 208/79 - my step1 passing

so i'm a very lazy person. i normally played sc2 or Lol or even gw, when i was studying i'd study 1h then play for like 20min. i find studying very boring.
i spent around 3-4months., truely i only needed like 2mnths, but i goofed off.

- my opinions of the test
-- everything -- FA +UWORLD+ FA qbanks

-- what i did
-- FA + uworld + fa qbank
- i took notes and studied form them

-- on the uworld qbanks i scored -- in the begining around 45% then it when up to around 60-65% avg
- i found the FA qbanks alot easier -- scoring -- 60-70%

NBMES - i did - 7,11,12
- i scored like 380--440

- the exams - was fair, when i went out, i knew i made 6 mistakes for sure, i'd highlight around 10-15questions per for some blocks i wasnt 100%sure.
- i found the 1st 4blocks prett easy, last 2 were really hard.
- i had alot of antamy questions - which i had no clue - so i guesed and moved on.

- my best advice -- KNOW - FA COLLD - and do uworld/fa qbank.

- im sure if i studied more and focused i'd prolly be able to improve that mark, but i didnt .
