Smile ali75462000 experience!

This forum helped me so much so I decided that I would provide a little summary of what worked for me and my experience

-Nbme 11: 235, 5 weeks out
-Nbme 7: 240, 3 weeks out
-Nbme 12: 245, 1 week out
-Uworld : 76 percent timed mixed overall

Its such a surreal feeling to finally be done with this. I studied for 2 months starting at the end April. I used primarily First Aid, Brs physio, Uworld, High-yield neuro, Pathoma, Rapid review, Goljan Audio.

-First of the test is extremely doable, and do not let anyone tell you differently. Also, I don't know why people talk about how the vignettes of the test are so long, mine was def. shorter than uworld, and barely longer than NBME.

-def. everything was in first aid, except for a couple of obscure pictures

Stats and Psychiatry
-all was pretty much covered in first aid

-everything was in first aid

-Goljan audio, pathoma, uworld, and first aid had it all

-95 percent of it was in first aid

-by far the only subject where first aid is lacking, don't really know how to tell people to study for this except to look at CTs and maybe brush up on your anatomy class notes

-most was in first aid, a couple of questions I got right from High-yield neuro
-know different sections of the brain, CTs, try to focus on the major locations

-I had maybe 3 questions on it, to be honest I don't even remember what those were, haha

-brs physio is highly recommended for this part, questions were not hard just required some thought

-I know people have fallen in love with Pathoma, but word of advice is to not forget about Goljan. The man still gives great concepts and advice on how questions are phrased and how to think critically.

All in all the exam was very doable, I can't think of anything else, but if anyone has any questions I would be happy to answer them!
