Default God is in Control

I feel you Doc.I try to take my mind off those silly mistakes i realized i did and some little things that really got me confused.We did our best.For me,the rest is God's(i believe in God).Try taking your mind off it..watch a show,music,eat well and sleep cos whatever the outcome is,we'll need to start studying soon again.I try to take it off my mind but there's still a residual thought of the exam lol.I believe we'll do good.Thanks for your wishes.I wish you success too

Wrote the exam on Nov.28. My permit disappeared before last Wednesday itself so should be getting the result this Wednesday. Praying that all is well (All izz well --- 3 idiots style). Really nervous, have been counseled to go on a pilgrimage out of town tomorrow ... Have been preparing for the visa with an expectation of a positive result ... Also started Step 2 CK Prep, but all that is'nt going well, am constantly reminded of this Sword over my head ... Hope we can give each other some emotional support here over this forum ... Hoping everyone including me do well ..... As most of us would like to remind ourselves, the best effort has been put, the rest is God's will .... It all rests with the Lord God ..... Om Nama Shivaya

Prayer is the key at this time.All i do is pray because no matter what i do,i still think about it.I now try to flood my thoughts with the positives and the easy questions i saw.My exam was on the 29th and i haven't even checked to see if my link disappeared.I just don't wanna go there.Am just praying and hoping the result comes good for all of us that are expecting result and those still preparing to take that bold step.I'll keep everybody in my prayers.Y'all...let's pray for each other's success..we need it more than ever guys.Whatever your religion is or your believes are,we're praying to one God for success and He shall never forsake us in times like this.Let's be strong...let's be positive...we shall all smile by God's grace.

I was so stressed today that I could'nt study ObGyn @ all, instead I ended up reading @ the library books on Politics, International Relations, Philosophy & Economics and could'nt sustain interest in anything. I just fled the library to home & this post ......... Just think of God & mundane things of daily life till the inevitable shows up ........

i'm a 3rd year medical student, us citizen, going to school out of the country, been studying for about 1.5 years
Did Kaplan, Did DIT, Golgan high yield, took all of the NBME's, read the FA about 4 times, did Kaplan Qbank, Did Uworld, and Did ALOT of random questions that I could get my hands on, got the exact same score I got on NBME 7 as I did on the exam. Study hard and be consistent, don't worry about what everyone else is doing, just do what works for you, and you can achieve your goals. I know this was rather vague but if you have any specific questions let me know.

I was surprised to see a thread for this because I was also anticipating my results today. Heart pounding experience, really.

I got 241/85. What are my chances as an IMG to enter an internal medicine residency program?

Congratulations, everyone.

Total Prep Time: 9 months with some breaks, including 6 months part-time and 3 month full-time
Studied average 5-6 hrs a day

Materials Used:

Kaplan Lecture Notes and Videos for all subjects except pathology for which I used Goljan RR with audio (both once)
First Aid (about 2 times cover to cover)
DIT 2011 (did it 3 times, last time is 20 days before the exam)
Uworld (all the questions once, read all answers)
Kaplan Qbank (80% of the questions, did not finish, read all answers)
High-yield Neuroanatomy (read once)

Qbank:
Uworld (81% correct total, all timed-mode) Don't rush to do qbank before you thoroughly go through the material at least once.
Kaplan Qbank (78% correct of the questions I've done)

Tips:
95% of the concept is covered by the Uworld and Kaplan Qbank, just the questions are asked in a unfamiliar manner in the exam. Pay attention to what the questions really ask for.
KNOW alternative names for enzymes and diseases, these are what they trick you big deal.

Total Prep Time:
9 months
with 6 months part time and 3 month full time
average 6 hours a day

Material used:
Kaplan books and video (Read once)
Golgin pathology audio and notes (reviewed page by page once)
FA (read page by page twice)
DIT video (3 times, last time is 20 days before the exam)
High yield neuroanatomy (once)

Qbanks
Uworld (81% total correct, all timed-mode, read all answers)
Kaplan Qbank (80% of questions, total correct 78%, all timed mode, read both correct and incorrect answers)

Tips
DO NOT rush to Qbanks before you finish reviewing all the material at least once.
KNOW alternative names for the enzymes and disease. In the exam, they
trick you with those names big deal.
PAY attention to what the question asks for. They are usually asked in a unfamiliar manner even though you know the concept.
