Wink Bronchiole Done with Step 1

guyz I wrote my exam couple of days back. but really busy packing and moving to a diff location.

exam was fair enough . I mean I wasn't cursing them. they were legit all the way. of course there were 3-4 of "those" WTF qs. but thats OK. oh lots of immunology but all are doable.

all in all, FA covered a lot of qs. KUDOS to that. although Kaplan is the real thing here. but FA helps to stick things in your mind.


feel free to ask any questions you have . and good luck guyz.

well, physio wasnt directly physio q but I had to apply the theory to get the answer.

molecular bio was 2-3 at best , i remember one was a bit confusing but the rest are in kaplan, very much bold and beautiful. dont worry about that.


difficulty level is def more than UW. almost like nbme. my 2 blocks were harder thank nbme. and q were OK sized. 2-3 was bigger than ever. but the rest is just fine.

hope it helps.

I had atleast 3 in every block. in some there were 5-6. I dont know if that is unusual or not.

some of them are doable right away. some needed thinking but i guess that is all under control. the best thing is to read the graph as it is and take things from there. if you start to remember what you know about this kind of graph that may prove fatal.

well, you know how uw's q s give away sooo many clues and after doing hours and hours of questions you kind of know how they ask the questions....that was def not there. real exam , to me, was with enough clues if not a lot. but UW def knows the exam and it's way of processing a question. and with UW if you know the theory/disease the answer just pops out from the options. but in real exam I felt like I had to think more than that.might as well be xam jitters. I don't know if this will help you or not.


NBME s are the most accurate indicator of eveything, the score , the question style.it was more like 13 to me.

I used goljan.
