Group talk June 2012 exam takers thread!

Hey,

This thread is for those of us taking our exam in June.

I figured since we are all near the end of our study it would be best for us to throw around forgettables and be able to discuss things we are having troubles with.

Also, I'm looking for a skype study partner from June 1st-4th for super high yield stuff.

But also we can throw around super high yield stuff on here.

Who's in?
Post your exam date and what your plan looks like for the remaining days!

Possible, but only if you do not make notes and just read the wrong ones (and maybe some good ones that you got randomly correct)...

Good luck....

pathoma is GOLD, 2nd best thing after uworld during my preperation now,,, never regret watching any single second of it!!!
u will go confident to the test and thinking that patho is ur strongest subject,,,, the problem with ur computer can be fixed dont worry, just ask any computer geek or technition, its most likely something like java or a flash player... dont pay any money to get this fixed, somebody will do it for free, ask ur friends
good luck man\fellow female step taker :P ,,, anyway i strongly reccomend doing it [pathoma]

6. eating a lot
7. taking nap
8. talking to family
9. talking to girlfriend
10. drugs (no drugs including sleeping aid or alertness aids)
11. studying
12. quitting my coffee addiction

any ideas on what to do on the last day?

people say watch a movie on the last day but if its a good film (which is all i like to watch, dont waste my time on rubbish films) then ima be thinking about it the whole next day whille i write my exam lol.

same goes for music.

thats why i figured id drive down to the prometric centre and look at it on this day as that should kill half a day.

guess i could chill at the mall and holler at girls too.

Hmm, actually shopping is a great idea I think. Always helped me.
Strategic shopping will be a shopping at the mall - so you'll never get too tired from walking around, cuz everything is in a close proxemity.

I've took my toefel and GRE at the same prometric so I know it pretty well, won't go there.

Oh my god, so what's left?..i think talking to family is most relaxing. I would NOT take any coffee but have some exercise in order to have a good sleep! And if I still can't get, than yes, I will take a sleeping aid devoid of effect on cognitive functioning (zopiclone? yeah, and definitely no books on that day..

Doing DIT/FA/Qbank/NBMEs.
Nothing else.
Sounds good?

def do it all at once, same day, like a test

i have mine planned for the day before my exam, just to keep my brain warm and used to questions
but im not sure how good idea it is

some people say the free 150 isnt that important
some say do it mid-prep

i dont think its such a big deal tbh

since its 2nd pass i cant really tell if DIT 2nd pass has helped
DIT first pass made me increase about 10% in my UW questions (1st pass).

right now my average on UW 2nd pass is 72, although last 4 days ive been in the 60s, trying to get back up to 70s.

Hi, if you don't mind... What's the 3-digit score of 520 in nbme 6??

I just want to check if how much uwsa 1 overestimates compared to the nbmes... Bec. I'm planning to use it at the end of my studies. Thank you!

Thank you! Don't worry though... I've read from other threads that nbme 6 underpredicts. You're probably in the 230's. Good luck!!

last one i took was about 15,16 days ago, scored 221.
aiming for 225 on wednesday.

i took nbme 12 and liked it.
i havent heard of it overpredicting or underpredicting.
pretty much all nbmes predict well.

why, have you taken nbme 12? how'd you do? whats your plan now nbme-wise?

Did they show the same weaknesses or patterns ? Or was it different each time you took those ? And how long has it been since you took your last NBME ? I'm sure you'll improve now!

I took offline NBME's (1,2,3) in 2 weeks time and scored pretty consistently in those .. didn't improve much in that time. Taking NBME 4 offline in a day or two since its going to be a week since my last offline NBME. After that I'll take an online NBME.

.
for the most part they showed the same weaknesses, some subjects where in totally diff spots on each but thats because they were smaller subjects and there were only a few questions on them.

i took my last nbme on may13th, next one is may30th.

i hope i improve this wednesday.
just asking for a 4pt increase, i dont think thats too much to ask lol.
lets see how it goes.

Yeah you will improve for sure!
You've been doing DIT 2nd pass along with UW 2nd pass so you will definitely improve!

one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip
You better lose yourself in the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
Tear this MFing roof off like 2 dogs caged
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed
So here I go it's my shot.
medicine fail me not, this may be the only opportunity that I got

*rage mode* ~ thank u eminem, love you <3

to finish one block? or finish the whole qbank?

it generally takes me 45min to finish a block (new, 2nd pass, nbme, whatever).
it took me about 4.5 weeks to do the whole qbank again.

will be done UW 2nd pass by the end of the night.

tomorrow, nbme form 7. exactly 1 week before my exam.
GL mate, You will do well in the NBME and Ace the Exam after

OK so here is my progress Update:
I finished DIT on the 27th and thought i'd jump right into a review of FA.
Instead of doing that, i ended up burning the last couple of days .

So my New Adjusted Plan till the 8th Of June:
Review All Fa by the 8th Plus 2 blocks Of UW Qbank at the end of each day

Today's Plan : Phama General and Ans
Biochem: Metabolism

UW 2Blocks

yes --> when u read something, be sure to do it properly! u can do that by thinking to urself that the next time u will see this thing is in the real test... so u better know it good, like the back of ur hand, especially if its firstaid

good luck

When is ur exam?
I know its hard to focus at times after sitting at home for months and studyn.. While everyone else is chilling out in the nice weather... Just rmr u worked this hard you dont want to loose focus now and then spend another few months studyn the same thing all over. We got this far.. We can do it.
