Help Any advice..words of encouragement anything

I have 17 days till the Test


Took NBME 4 weeks ago before DIT and scored 218.
Completed DIT.

Finished UWORLD 68%.
Took the UWORLD assessment this weekend and scored a 242.
From what I'm reading online thats a + or - of 15 ?


Planning on taking NBME next weekend.


Started using K-qbank and knocking out 2 blocks a day and annotating in First AID, while reviewing old UWORLD notes.
Will stop doing questions from Kaplan Qbank 1 week before Test.
Will probably have 30-40% questions left unused.
And Just read FirstAid and DIT notes till Exam.


Is doing the Kaplan Qbank a good idea?! Worried I'm not getting enough out of it.

I'm picking up a few details here and there from Kaplan that I didn't get the first time with UWORLD.

Want to jump up another 10pts!!!
According to my preformance anaylsis im still weak in Reproduction so I've focused on that on spare time.

Worried and Stressed!!

I've only used Kaplan physio and biochem.
Used pathoma as well.
Have gone through FA 2x and planning on 3rd really soon.

Its just nerve racking as time gets closer.

According to my seniors who scored well in step one , in my home town, kaplan qbank was low yield.
So its up to u now. Depends on how much time you have.

Goodluckkkkk
