MusculoSkeletal How to score better on musculoskeletal questions??

I just did my first NBME.. Perfomance was satisfactory in most subjects except behavioral science and musculoskeletal. BS borderline and Musc below borderline. I'm thinking I'll do Conard fischer 100 cases to score better on BS questions but I am not sure what to do with Musculoskeletal...


Any advice??

same thing going with me

but chapter 23 is only 25 pages. so 2 hours of reading would suffice.

btw is your score normal on NBME 7?
