Unhappy confused

Hi All,

I have just began to prepare for USMLE step 1. I am studying immunology. but I am really worried that after each chapter in Kaplan notes when I am taking those test I am getting 2 correct out of 5. Please anyone can tell me their experience or should I stop preparing for USMLE.

Arrow Don't worry about it

In the beginning of preparation it is perfectly normal to score less than 50% in any number of questions you do.

Immunology is one of the most difficult parts of USMLE Step 1, check this

Do not despair at all. Keep moving. You'll never improve on your test taking skills unless you make mistakes.

When I started doing Kaplan Qbank I was scoring 35% then after 200 questions I started getting 45-50% and then after a week or so I stabilized on 60-65%.
