Group talk November 2012 Step 1 Exam Takers

Hey guys!

I started this new thread to keep me motivated and to stay in touch with people that have similar exam date. So, I want to schedule my exam on the 5th November, since my eligibility period is Sep-Oct-Nov.

I finished UW Q Bank with an average of 72%, random, timed mode. Yesterday, I took UWSA 1 and scored 244, which is not bad, but I really want to improve a lot. Now I am revising UW along with FA (I just need to learn all the viruses and some pharmacology things that I keep postponing). I am planning that every Saturday until the exam to take a simulation: plan to take NMBE 7, 11, 12, 13 and UWSA 2. Maybe I will do some DIT along with these simulation.

I hope my plan is good enough. Will see! Is there anybody else in the same boat as me? If yes, please share your plan and your scores.

Default Exam on 20th nov

I am done with 70% UW (with 59% ).
I have country liciencing exam on 30th sept. so Will be done with whole UW by at max 10th Oct. Planning to take UWSA 1 after that.
Then keep on reviewing FA and UW and on weekends do offline NBMEs after 2 or 3 days.
Thinking to do DIT for stuff i can't cram properly from first aid (like pharma).
Will be taking NBME 13 and 11 by first week of nov.

Hope everything works according to plans.

Suggestion from all: I am struggling with remembering side effects and some cramming stuff regarding pharma. Any recommendations? Do lot ques? or Flash card? (if flash card any recommendation?)

Thanks

Update:

Yesterday, I took UWSA 2 and scored only 245 compared to UWSA last week 244. I am a little bit disapointed since I revised some of my weak areas and I improved only 1 point. I still have 5 weeks and plan to take some NBME, but I want 260. Do you think it is possible? What should I do next? Please, give me an advice.

You have a really good Kaplan QBank score giving the fact that Kaplan is harder than UWorld. You should do just fine in UWorld. I'm ok with Anatomy, but Behavioral is killing me and that's why I'm doing all the different tests related to Behavioral and Biostatistics. Well, good luck with your studies!

Hey guys! Well my goal is to hopefully get this monster over with by november too!! (maybe the end of the month)

It's just taking me forever to finish through uworld - done with 60% so far with a 61% Yeah not great.. still have to go through it more after im done once.. And im doing FA alongside, making notes and stuff. It's just taking me forever and my days fluctuate from being really stressed to losing motivation is that even normal?

I just hope i can get this done soon!! I really want to make it to thanksgiving dinner :sorry::sorry::sorry:

Good luck to you all!

Hey Drmano!
These feelings are all normal. We all have some bad days when you feel you can't remember anything or you feel that everyone around you is smarter. Or you are scoring very very low in UW Q Bank. I have been through these phases.
But you always have to remind yourself what is your goal, what is the motivation that keeps you going in this tough road. Always visualize your dream! Don't ever give up! Good days will come for all of us And I think that God has a plan for each one of us!

Short update!

I finally scheduled my exam on the 9th November because the spot on 5th November was available from 2pm to 10 pm. Oh my God! It wouldn't have worked for me for sure! So I got some extra days...

I plan to finish the second review of UW Q Bank until Monday, because my subscription ends then. Until now, I revised marked and incorrect questions, but also the ones that were correct in the first place, because I didn't write notes from the beginning in FA.

Next week I plan to take an NBME, I don't know exactly when. Until then, wish you all good luck with your studies and stay motivated!

Hello! How are you guys doing?

I just finished revising UWorld today, because my subscription just ended. I did the second time all the questions except Pharmacology and some chapters in Pathology where I did only the incorrect ones.

After that, I cleaned up my desk and I went for a short walk in the park (it is a beautiful autumn day and the trees are all colored in yellow and red and green). It helps me disconnect a bit from the exam. Now I plan starting DIT for 10-12 days and after that I plan to take an online NBME. Hope that everything works according to the plan! Good luck everyone

That sounds so serene! I want to live in a beautiful Autumn right now!
Okay enough whining. So I'm done with half of UW. Slight increase in cumulative, courtesy some FA revision. Haven't scheduled, but will take exam on Nov 15th come what may.
How many NBME's will you be doing Teona? I want to take one too soon (Predictive scores freak me out, so have been avoiding them NBME's. But everyone's pushing me, so I should stop being a wuss.) Is there any specific NBME test you have in mind? And would you be doing it online/offline?

Hi everybody

I have only 15 days to study before finally taking the exam. What a long journey ! more than a one year and few months to prepare for this step ! I got exhausted

this is my improvement:

NMBE 5 Online ( before 4 months ) : 380/193 ! very bad and got depressed and that time I realized that I have more time to study ( like months ! )
NBME 6 online ( ------- 2 month) : 440/207
NBME 7 Online ( ------- 1 month) : 490/219
UWSA 1 ------- ( before 2 weeks) 240
NBME 11 online ( before 1 day ):540/231

by now I have review pathoma and FA many times. before that of course I started w/ Kaplan books and their videos
done w/ usmleworld 67% 1st time, and also review more than half of its questions
done w/ Kaplan Q bank 60%

Do you think guys can I hit 240 ? this is my target. can I do it? do you know someone got 240 in real exam but got only around 230s or below on NBME?

I see that I improved in most of subjects and got stars on them except two to three

first one is behavioral science. this is one make me crazy I can't improve more than border line ! the last NBME (11) I got lower than border line ! I don't know how to improve on this subject. BTW it is not include biostatistics I can tell you that I can handle bios. questions no problems with that. the problem is in ethical side. I have reviewed every single question in usmle world for this subject. I bought 100 ethics questions by fisher; good book though. I know the ethical rules but still I can't solve its questions !
do you know any good resource to practice ethical questions? or do advice me to do with it?


second subject is endocrine & repro:
I see have fluctuation of improvement in this subject. do you recommend me to read another resource like Goljan RR? does it make different?
Do you recommond to do DIT? or only review FA and Pathoma again?

please help me on that. I will take NBME 2012 in on week to see if I'm gonna improve or not


Thank you very much I can't ignore that this is forum help a lot to improve my score. but I need more

Hello Docki!
I am also postponing taking NBMEs because I am afraid of having a terrible score. But I want to take 2 online (I am thinking of 7/12 and 13) and the rest I will do offline. My goal is to do 5, 6, 7, 11, 12 and 13. I hope I have enough time.
Cheers!

Where are my fellow November warriors?
Rise, fellow warriors! Haha, I'm going bonkers.
Exam's on the 15th! Teona, where are you in the revision? Took the NBME yet?
I'm done with UW, only 3 tests left I think. Average 81. A little pleased, but must take the NBME. Don't know if I even have the time

Drmano, you should definitely review FIRST AID with UW if exam's planned for mid november.

Hello Docki! My exam is on 9th November I took NBME 7 offline last week and got 23 wrong questions and according to the formula it will be around 248. I am doing DIT right now and going trough FA tomorrow will take NBME 12 online. Keep you updated! Anyways, every time I think of Step 1 my heart beats like crazy. Last night I was having tachycardia and couldn't fall asleep. Good luck with your studies

Teona, hey! Wanted to know how did you find the NBME's. I'm doing one in a day or two (Hopefully, ugh.) Did it consume a whole day, or can I can just keep half a day? And was it more difficult than UW? I keep delaying it cause I'm scared that if I see a bad score, I might get discouraged!

Hey Nisha! I'd recommend doing the wrong questions again, plus it won't take much time to review the explanations since you've already made notes. Most test takers redo their wrong questions, and I'm going to do it as well when reviewing FA for the last time. (Which is starting next week. )

Hey Spark! You'd always know best, but I've kept FA for the end so hi-yield points stay fresh just before the exam! (Or so I hope!) Good luck

Hey Docki! I did only NBME 7 last week and I found it to be easier than UWSA1/UWSA 2 or even UWorld. The questions are not so ambiguous and I was sure on most of them. Maybe it is also the fact that I have studied more in the meanwhile and also started DIT. But don't be scared of NBMEs!

I started doing NBME at 8 o'clock and finished around 12:30 so it won't take you a full day. Now I must admit that the test is tiring so last week I ended doing nothing after the test. Hope that won't happen tomorrow

Good luck!

Hey Drmano! I revised all the UWorld questions the second time, because the first time I didn't write all the wrong questions and I didn't want to miss anything. It is worth doing the second time but it takes a long time. After my first read of Kaplans together with the lectures I revised some of the chapters in biochemistry, immunology and physiology and then started UWorld and very little of FA (I used to hate FA in the beginning) but I go back to Kaplan every time I don't remember a mechanism. Hope it helps

@ teona

Thanx. I still hate fa. Lol. So instead of doing it Im rapidly revising Kaplan. Is there anything in fa that isn't given in Kaplan ?

I'm revising uworld offline rapidly too n memorising my notes of uworld previously made.
Yeah second time uworld whole would b taking a lot of time. But you'll do it. Keep up the good work

Hey Teona...you are doing good. I want to start taking nbmes..but scared I guess. I'm doing uw 2nd time, finished DIT, most of kaplan vids, FA 4-5 times..exam in one month. Do you prepare before taking nbme...I mean to say like brush up on formulas of biostatistics, side effects of drugs,tables...all those volatile stuff....I'm asking this because some of the stuff I read few weeks ago need revision before I take nbme...so how do we test our full knowledge when we still have one month of preparation left...pl help.

Just an update!
Did Kaplan Qbank for Biostats (to gain more confidence on the Epi questions. Did help me, actually!)I'm now going toquickly read some Behavioral sciences chapters from Kaplan tonight, and then read Conrad Fisher's Ethics tomorrow. That should make up for the stuff I feel I was weak in. What are you guys upto?

PS. Feel so fatigued and like, really unwell. So odd, I don't ever feel this physically tired. Guess it's just the stress?

I just finished NBME 12 online and I scored 560/235 with 27 wrong questions. So I guess the formula *1.4 is not always very accurate. Anyways, this was definitely much harder than NBME 7. Hope the real exam won't be like this

I've got a star in all the sections, except General Principles of Health & Disease , Muskulosketal/Skin, Renal and Pharmacology. I still have DIT for a couple of days to do (neurology, renal, muskuloskeletal).

Cheers guys!

Hey venki! Thanks for your thoughts. Actually I am not that happy with this score, because I read it correlates with the real exam. Anyway, the test had some questions asked in a really strange way. Hope the real exam has more straightforward questions.

I had a star also in Bioethics. I haven't done anything special to learn this. I read Kaplan and seen the lectures and FA. Couple of months ago I read some pages from Conrad but then I got bored and postponed reading it. When I read the questions I try to see it like the doctor is always trying to help the patient. For example, you always should choose the answer where the doctor asks an open question, where the patient can explain his feelings and anxiety. Or the doctor always needs to resolve the case by himself (never refer the case to an ethics committee). The Bioethics was kind of easy in this NBME, but some part of behavioral I got wrong.
Hope I answered your question! When do you plan to take a NBME?

thanks for info......ya but i think this is your first nbme to do online and also heard nbme 12 is the toughest of all from many people....so dont get worry abt it...

IMO you have 10-11 more working days in your hands to improve alot....it may correlate your real score if you have given it like 2-3 days before exam.....just my advice is dont get freak out and improve your weak areas skills..you can easily reach your target(260 right..?)

ya my question was abt . behavioral science only(not stats)...but i got the answer from you....my dit will be finished by this day...so i'm hoping to take uwsa2 on 31st and nbme a week before(7th or 8th) the real one.......but little scary abt 12(as it is the toughest one..)..wanted to give 7 online
goodluck

Yeah i have the same question! Since the stuff we read a while back might not be so fresh in mind and especially the formula's. I think its better to brush up on it real quick before an NBME? Assuming that's what we will do right before the exam too right guys?


And Teona- Great job! You can def improve in the next few days and get 240+

I have the list of forgettables and I try to repeat everyday a couple of subjects from that list so that my short term memory will transform in long memory. This way the 4 formulas from Pharmacology and the ones in Biostatistics are already in my brain. I will suggest to try repeating every day some of the volatile things such as drugs side effects, lysosomal diseases, cyt 450 inducers/inhibitors, drugs that cause sulfiram effect and so on. Good luck!

Took the NBME 5 right now, and too scarred by the result! Is the key at the end of the offline form to be trusted?
Teona, what key are you using for the offline one? I found one at another forum for Form 5 that seems pretty legit. But I don't know if I can trust it? And bottom line, I need to increase the NBME score. This is very, very scary.

Most of the answers in the documents attached are right. If you think there are mistakes search on other forums and you will find different opinions regarding the answers. It will take some time but it is worth it. Don't be discouraged by your score. I think NBME 5 has a lot of neuro and behavioral stuff.

I checked with other this one and another one. Some I got wrong are cause of mistakes in the key. Like not all, but about 4 or 5 of them. Which is still a lot. THANK GOD. Biggest scare of my life. Jeeeezeeeeeeee!

Reviewing of NBME 5 done! 249! (22 wrong questions. So that's 249 according to x1.4 formula right? Please correct me if I'm wrong) Gee Thank you Lord. More relieved than I've ever been.
Also, no clue about the FRC question.

To be on the safe side use x1.37-1.4 as the range. Someone on another forum mapped out peoples extended online scores for NBME 6,7,11,12 and found that the 1.4 is not for every exam. I believe it was on SDN.

Thank you! Becomes 243 then. Which is fine with me. The harder ones are left though. Still have 4 more forms to go. And going to do 7 and 12 online I think. Or maybe just one online if cost proves to be an issue!

I only do online because I find it really makes a big difference. The exam cost so much already and remember the lower your score the more residency applications you need to send out. Its better to shell out 100 dollars now than to have to shell out >1000 in residency applications.

Dude same here. I've done FA before. So wasn't prepared for it take that long. It's torture. When's your exam? And what subject are you doing?
I started FA today morning. I have just finished embryo and it's almost 11 pm here. CRAP. I officially despise my pace.

I have finished 70% u world with 68% scores keep going up and down and its frustrating to see that graph sometimes. have a month left for exams. doing FA side by side but i will give a thorough reading after completing u world again and give an nbme. Any tips on how to improve and get some extra help from any other study material. I am done with kaplan q bank got a low score of 64% there too done 2 offline nbme. form 5 and 13. got around 35 mistakes in both.

Just my two cents. I was going all crazy after UW scores myself, (posted a thread too) and was whining with my UW aggregate so much. It did increase in the end. But I later saw many seniors in school with much lower UW scores and their actual score in the exam was much better. I don't think I'd rely on this score as much as the others like NBME for instance. As for your Kaplan Q bank, that is a TOUGH question bank. Your score is pretty decent. I think we're supposed to learn from it. I found the NBME form 5 which I did offline more simple. At this time, I want to say to you what I said to myself this morning. We're almost done, and we're so close to the exam. This is the time to review and reinforce what we did so far. So just plan out a revision instead of focusing on new study material (Brutally honest, your scores are pretty decent!!! I say this, cause I obsesses over scores like my life is ending!!! Trust me, have faith on how far you've come and trust yourself to go further. We all will ace this! Amen!)

That's the date I've planned for my exam too!!! What helped me was staying more calm during the NBME. I gave myself a peptalk too! I I will take another NBME in another day or two as well. Hope it works well!! You will do well my friend!! Don't you worry! Let's just stick to our plans!
Have to do Respo from FA tomorrow. (Sheesh, I wish my plan works! Hate it when it doesn't!)

hey guys!!
The month is here!
i just took NBME 6 online...i thought i did good but my score is messed up i got 196 and missed 56 ...very discouraging!!! i guess the formula should be like*1.3, and i took the extended feedback ...there r a lot of wrong answers offline so u guys better watch out..

so my plan of action is finish uworld and do FA subject wise along with neuroanatomy HY and pathology goljan... and i will give another nbme and see if i got any better...any suggestions?
How are you guys reading FA, what method is helping u memorize/ absorb...my brain becomes great wall of china when it comes to FA

so my plan of action is finish uworld and do FA subject wise along with neuroanatomy HY and pathology goljan... and i will give another nbme and see if i got any better...any suggestions?
How are you guys reading FA, what method is helping u memorize/ absorb...my brain becomes great wall of china when it comes to FA
When is your exam? FA is also my weakness, I really hate that book.

@dr. Hobbes.

Yeah. Fa is boring. It misses many hy points. So I'm doing just Kaplans.
But I dunno if it'll work out or not. Coz I'm not a high scorer on nbmes till now. :/

Hey guys!

Just finished NBME 13 online. I scored 247 with 22 wrong questions. I have 5 days left until the big day. What do you suggest I should do in these days? I have a feeling that all the small details in FA are slowly vanishing from my brain grey matter.

That is a great score Teona. Well done I guess you should just try to stay calm next few days and flip pages of FA . Get good sleep and get ready to crack the exams. Good luck

@ dockhi.
Hey ! How're u doin ?

Dude , I'm downloading DIT. N I guess it will take looooong to do it. Hmm ?
Like how many days does it take to do it ? Minimum ?

Cz previously I read from fa.

If it takes like a week or something to do it full , I'll just do some of it. Like cardiovascular n biochem.

ok..you can improve alot for sure in this month...why dont you start DIT?(if not yet)...my advice is to start it now as you have 1 month...and try to complete it in 2wks(just not only stick to DIT in those days..complete F.A accordingly)..then give NBME to see where you stand....i'm pretty sure you can improve alot and abt uwsa1 ignore your score,even i scored very low in it...........and ofcourse wait for other opinions too..
goodluck

Default good advice

I followed your advice of doing the uw and it has helped a lot. I am planning to focus on the patho part as I have a low score in that .rather than do everything in DIT as I have a lot of things to revise and DIT will not allow me to do that .

thanks.....regarding patho...i did have a low score a month back in it...so i started dit along with pathoma(it was very good in building concepts)..now i'm very fine with patho...now i got only behavr to develop(as i have only 10 days more i think i can do it).....ya you can skip some in DIT(for me cardio,micro ,pharma and video answers were good...dont try to skip them if you do DIT).
but do remind to revise uworld(daily 1-2blocks likewise,according to your plan)..you can do it...!
goodluck

Hey! I never did DIT (Venky help us here!). I will be taking an NBME in 3 or 4 days. FA is taking very long for some reason. I've done 11 and 5 so far. Now plan to do 7 and 12 online. And don't be confused! I SO know the feeling. It's so difficult studying in this stress, even simple stuff seems excruciating to retain! That's what all past exam takers say. But in the end, it all falls into the right order somehow. And about NBME, it will come to you easily dude. You've worked on UW so hard, and that should reallly help with the Nbme's!!

@dockhi

Problem here with the DIT. I'm unable to download it. Man!!! The time left to finish the download on utorrent is 3 weeks. Lol !!! Can u believe it ? N my net connection is good. Still :/

So , i don't think I'll be able to do DIT.
After all.

So ummm I'm revising FA now.

My posts may sound weird to all you guys. But I really m oscillating between thinking to do this book or that
But that's how it is.
Today I did uworld notes n all mcqs of anatomy histo embryo n genetics. Whew.
N revised fa embryo.
Now doing fa cardio.
Will finish it in an hour n then will sleep.


Yeah I'll also take nbme 12 in two days. I hope to be done with uworld till then. •••fingers crossed•••

hey...

i think DIT takes more than 2 wks...as i see your exam on 15th(same as on mine)....it wouldnt be sufficient for DIT(but ,if you're willing to watch cardio and video answers-----those two are worth to watch IMO).........i think you can select what videos you want to download in utorrent..

and stay still...you will rock the exam well....goodluck for nbme12 man........all d best

Well, I think is better to give first UWSA and at the end of your preparation you must give at least one NBME to see where you stand. Hope it helps! Good luck!

Its more than possible if your smart about, I did 15 questions in 10 days, so you have 14 days so try for the 20 points. Really focus on your weak areas and also check where you can get some gimmies (things you can easily memorise for extra points- micro, pharm, biostats equations- think if you have all the micro/pharm/biostats down thats about 10-20 questions extra).


I'll be working on a similar jump for the next few days so if you need support just message me as I will be in the same position. I'm trying to make sure that my next extended score report has no missed pharm, micro, and half the number of pathology questions missed- if I do this I'm in the 250s. Which is huge for someone who was struggling to pass only a few weeks ago.

hi..

my exam is on 15th too......
my only advice is dont loose hope at this peak....just a matter of days(may be you had bad day on the day you did nbme13---)...
just go through all your weak areas in f.a(first) and go through f.a again and again totally.............(if you can ,try to do your weak areas q's from u world---if you have subscription or offline)........
goodluck...hope we all do well in exam...........
