Thumbs Up KoolKiller88 Exam experience (210/79)

May be some of you remember me. I used to be an active member of this forum until the day of my exam. After exam i was kinda using suppression defense mechanism by not thinking about results. So i was avoiding to login in this forum.

Got my scores yesterday time. I got 210/79.
My reaction-I am happy that i passed but bit disappointed too.

I really want to thank casandra (she helped me with my patho and it was my most high scored subject), usmle-forums members (specially- venky, billy for there nice questions and others), my friends and family.

For some of you reading my exam experience would not be helpful as i know everyone aims for good (240-250 above) scores but then why i am sharing my info. So that may be any info written by me can be helpful to some of my fellas.

About Me- I am march 2012 graduate from zhejiang university, china (Indian by nationality). I am an average student but i always try to aim higher then my capabilities (may be i am crazy or something but thats me )

Preparation details-
Duration- May to Nov. (seriously studied for 4-5 months)
Material- Kaplan notes and videos (except- patho and micro) , Rapid Review, FA 2012, DIT 2010, goljian audios, Robbins patho Q&A, some pretest and UW.

Weakness- 1. Try to keep your duration of prep as short as possible.
2. Don't spend whole time on doing first reading of kaplan notes (Now why so?) a)First reading cramming never retains in mind.
b) you don't left with sufficient time to do second read. Which i think is more useful.
3. Practice more and more questions. Specially of-
a) Micro- because continuous cramming of microbes don't help much.
b) Genetics and molecular biology- All notes have basic info about these topics. If you don questions. Then only you can understand how to use those basic concepts in different type of questions. Step 1 loves to ask these topics and confuse you. So try to master it.
c) Patho- mother and father of step 1. So doing ques is key.
d) Behavior science- reading about patient-doctor relation and other topics only help you to know things but questions help you to attempt these question efficiently.
e) Physio- My weakest part in exam- Physio is not a major topic of exam but its very important to understand most of your step 1 prep. and step 1 can easily trick you with some of graphs and table.

My reviews about Qbanks and Qbooks-
Doing all kinda questions is worth spending time. Doesn't matter questions are easy or difficult. As straight forward questions help you to review some cramming topics and integrated questions help you to check your concepts and how you implicate them.

UW- Everyone say UW is not "USMLE WORLD" Its like your "Ultimate Warrior" for step 1 prep. and i must say it is Exam had most of same concepts which i studied in UW or anyother Qbank or book but questions were more detailed then UW questions.
and you know what... As i observed WTF questions or What we try to think as experimental are not about weird question but its about its weird "OPTION". So try to understand options properly.

NBMEs- 1-13 NBMEs and 150 free question. They are sample papers of step 1. you will see nearly 10 questions from them. Just direct questions.
When people say "NBMEs are very predictive". I think they are right but let me clear one myth (which i had)- Exam is nothing like NBMEs, Its just your score correlate really well with NBME scores.
I did NBME 11 and 12 online (Did lot of silly mistakes and ended up with- NBME 11- 210 and NBME 12-214). I thought i will avoid those silly mistakes in exam and will try more score but Exam was different and ended up with this score.
At last- In short " Exam is not impossible but its tricky and bit tough."

I know my review is not typical review but these are important things which i like to share with all of you. If anyone have any other quires please feel free to ask. I will be more then happy to reply.
Thanks
Have a great prep.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I just have a few quick questions: did you use KLN for anatomy? Was it sufficient or did you feel it has unnecessary details? Also, did you get any slides and audios in your exam?? Were they doable? I feel that I'm unable to differentiate between murmurs

Best of luck for the remaining steps!

KLN anatomy- Ya i did anatomy from kaplan and FA and practiced ques. from UW. I graph was on high performance in histo and anatomy. So i think these study material is sufficient. Ya kaplan have too much details but its worth reading once then UW and FA can help you to remember useful stuff.
In anatomy concentrate on abdominal aorta and branches, CT of lower abdomen and thorax, Leg and arm nerve innervation and neuroanatomy.

Images and audios- I had few histological, CT and gross anatomy images but most of them where doable.
Audios- i had 2 audios. We can answer them without listening audios.

Physio was not heavily tested but that was one option which include most of my incorrect questions.
KLN physio is good but if you feel problem with that. You can use BRS physio but to master physio try doing questions from UW or any other Qbank.

I just mentioned about all books details in above post.
To give you info about where to buy these books you have to tell me your location. As i am indian. I bought all kaplan notes (photocopied), rapid review, first aid from delhi (nai sarak).

As i remember neuroanatomy was quite appropriate (5-6 ques)
I haven't done HY neuro. So can't comment on that.
I did Kaplan neuroanatomy with FA neurology. I think Dr. Najeeb videos are very good source for neuroanatomy.

If u are already doing qbank then it's fine too. I used this book will doing rapid review first read and it was quite helpful to remember and implicate rapid review studied facts.

Sorry for misunderstanding. by SP I mean study partner ;-)

For pharma- I did Kaplan notes once and keep reviewing stuff from FA. As pharma is solely from FA but it's given in very brief manner. So I recommend doing Kaplan once before start doing FA pharma.
Micro and pharma are kinda subjects which require continues revision and FA info is enough for both of them.
Good luck

Thanks, ya you got into that topic which is getting me into dilemma.
I personally think ya exam was definitely harder then most NBME but it had more longer questions then UW or NBME.
Exam questions need more time to think then UW and options were more confusing. In short I had less trouble doing UW and NBME then doing real exam.
But I talked to some of my friends who recently gave exam. Some said there exam was easy and some say it was difficult with around same scores. So I must say there are lot of factors to consider to conclude that exam was difficult or easy.

In short, real exam is not cream but not a rock too. So handle with care. ;-)
In my above post I mentioned about exam being difficult. So I want to mention again my above post don't meant to disappoint anyone. I just wrote what I observed during my prep and exam.

Thanks for sharing your valuable experience with us. I am also a student from China of Indian origin. I feel kaplan histology is too much giving me trouble to remember and too vast to revise.any suggestions? and DIT is too hectic,the lectures are good but too hectic to do with the UW! when did u include DIT in your study plan?
Congratulaions for the the score

1. Behav Science .... everyone says Videos are must for it and they are pretty good when it comes to epidemiology and stats but do we need to memorize the numbers as well for topics like suicide and so on

2.I have studied physiology from BRS (the small book) do u think its sufficient enough

3.is it good enough to focus on FA after doing micro and Immunology from kaplan.


Good luck for step 2

Thanks and sorry for late reply
1. About B.S.- Actually we don't study B.S. much in our med schools. So videos are very helpful source. Biostats in exam is very straight forward, doctor- patient question need practice (as i mentioned in above post), Those stats and no. you don't have to memorize much but knowing 3 most common causes is quite useful.

2. BRS physio is very presentation whereas kaplan physio have lot of stuff (hard to remember all). So best way is do UW after 1 read of BRS or kaplan and itegrate your knowlege with those questions and know concepts related to that questions. I was quite week in physio but by doing UW questions twice i improved from low performance to average but still had long way to go.:-(

3.Ya for immuno and micro FA info is enough. May be you can consult kaplan book for immuno again. If you have problem knowing facts mentioned in FA but FA is more than enough for micro. (except read about bacteria and virus reporduction pattern from kaplan like-reassortment or cojugation kinda stuff)

Hope info provided above is helpful.

Congratulaions for the the score
Hey xie xie
Ya kaplan histo is kinda too much but diserve atleast one read and try to remember cell biology basic stuff. Its helpful. Reminder you will learn by FA and UW.
Ya DIT is boring and hectic but if you are having hard time remembing stuff of FA and don't know much about high yield stuff. So its a nice stuff. Ya it is hard to do with UW.
Actually i neglected it while doing UW (UW is gaint it take out every single time you have in your schedule). So If you have sufficent time after finshing UW. Trying doing DIT after UW or during second review of UW.
DIT is not compeltely exam centered but its quite helpful.

I subscribed UW for 2 months.

How long it takes to finish UW is kinda person specified question.
If you are planning to do 1 block UW with FA or study material review. first go will take quality time. (1 month or more)
If you do 2 UW blocks per day (you wont be able to review other stuff). Then first go will take less then month.

Why UW takes time?
You have to write down details mentioned in UW (so instead of notes try to integrate stuff in FA or any other last reference book)

Second review goes really fast 15-20 days with review of study material.

I think i want to mention again- questions in real exam may ask (mostly they do) same concept as in UW but questions are lengthy and options are more tricky then UW. So spend time to know concept of question then have photographic memory of that type of ques.

Hope this info help. "wo zhu zai panipat, Haryana (xin deli hao jing)

do you still remember me, i got NBME score around 221. after i read your post you told us that the NBME score is really predictive. next week i will have my score reported, I feel so scared, and so anxious about my score, i hope i get good score >230. I know i cant change anything what i have done, i felt that i didnt do well in exams. Its really torture to wait score reported in 3 weeks. I feel that i want to forget if i had taken the exams. Its really important the score for me, or i will give up for my dream. I dont know how i can handle it when i get my result. Thank you btw sharing your score and your experience. Good luck for your next step preparation.

Ya micro was my weakness too. You can see my signature and guess how much i hate this subject but as per my friends recommendation. I improved in this subject alot.
First of all review FA micro as much as you can. After few reads you will start feeling comfortable but most important is do any Qbank micro questions 10-20 per day. This is help you to be always in touch with micro. There are lot of flash cards online for micro. They were not much helpful to me but you can try.
Best luck

After reading your post there are few points i like to mention.
I personally felt SA2 is easier then SA1. So that drop is quite obvious.
Regarding NBME 7 score that is bit worrisome. As people say NBME 7 and 11 are very predictive but don't worry. Keep working on your week points. As i mentioned above EXAM is nothing like NBMEs but it somehow appoaximately predict your score.
So overall conclusion is keep working on your week points and take one more NBME. See how it goes.

Hey thanks for wishes,

Regarding Patho: I know we call go through this kinda hard time. So first thing you can do is hold your anxiety and get on to your prep systemically. Patho is a vast subject and incredibly high yield but as you said you have 2 months of prep. So i don't recommend going though robbins Q & A book, WHY? because Its good when u are doing your first read and you have to use your studied knowledge by doing some questions. For now If you are really having tough time doing patho try doing more and more Qbanks questions like- UW or kaplan or others. While doing question If you think you lack lot of info related to question or you think most of questions concepts are new to you then you can switch to pathoma or rapid review(but i still think you should review that stuff which you read before. Reading a new stuff at this moment is time consuming). Can you tell me which study material you used during your first read of pathology.

FA micro is sufficient except for few topics. FA pharma is also sufficient but if you have hard time understanding that do a quick read of kaplan pharm.

Dude genetics is really a complicated stuff of real exam. Most of weird questions are from genetics and microbiology and i feel our study material for both of these things are not well written or deficient. So do as much questions for Qbanks. I can't say it will be all but that can give you an edge and prevent your genetics panic attack in exam.

Regarding all Qbanks- Actually if you do more then 1 qbank you will figure out that most reputed qbanks are different way of asking questions. Some concentrate of making question as hard as possible where as others try to integrate concepts. So don't feel any qbank as difficult or hard because real exam have its own way of asking questions and these qbanks only make you familiar with the concepts asked in real exam.
So don't evaluate yourself with qbanks. I think all these are only study material, not an evaluating tool.

Med school problem- I don't have authority to blame any med school but ya even i think difference between getting 240 and getting 210 like me was somewhere i lacked those slight things which i lacked due to med school but you know its human nature we try to blame others instead of feeling our own responsibility. So whatever happened its past. Thing about future and work hard.

P.S. this is not only for you but to all my fellas, no matter how bad your med school concepts are spending ages on first read is not helpful to 80% of us. So don't spend much time. Just go through concepts and leave the learning part for 2nd review.

You can gets books on Nai sarak, near chandni chowk. As i know they are still selling 2009 edition of kaplan notes and kaplan notes usually remain same for ages.
Ya i know its confusing to start prep. but i recommend read some experiences and take a schedule of urself. Don't spend unusually long time on particular subject. Hope i answered all question. If you still have questions feel free to ask. Have a nice prep.

Got my scores yesterday time. I got 210/79.
My reaction-I am happy that i passed but bit disappointed too.

I really want to thank casandra (she helped me with my patho and it was my most high scored subject), usmle-forums members (specially- venky, billy for there nice questions and others), my friends and family.

For some of you reading my exam experience would not be helpful as i know everyone aims for good (240-250 above) scores but then why i am sharing my info. So that may be any info written by me can be helpful to some of my fellas.

About Me- I am march 2012 graduate from zhejiang university, china (Indian by nationality). I am an average student but i always try to aim higher then my capabilities (may be i am crazy or something but thats me )

Preparation details-
Duration- May to Nov. (seriously studied for 4-5 months)
Material- Kaplan notes and videos (except- patho and micro) , Rapid Review, FA 2012, DIT 2010, goljian audios, Robbins patho Q&A, some pretest and UW.

Weakness- 1. Try to keep your duration of prep as short as possible.
2. Don't spend whole time on doing first reading of kaplan notes (Now why so?) a)First reading cramming never retains in mind.
b) you don't left with sufficient time to do second read. Which i think is more useful.
3. Practice more and more questions. Specially of-
a) Micro- because continuous cramming of microbes don't help much.
b) Genetics and molecular biology- All notes have basic info about these topics. If you don questions. Then only you can understand how to use those basic concepts in different type of questions. Step 1 loves to ask these topics and confuse you. So try to master it.
c) Patho- mother and father of step 1. So doing ques is key.
d) Behavior science- reading about patient-doctor relation and other topics only help you to know things but questions help you to attempt these question efficiently.
e) Physio- My weakest part in exam- Physio is not a major topic of exam but its very important to understand most of your step 1 prep. and step 1 can easily trick you with some of graphs and table.

My reviews about Qbanks and Qbooks-
Doing all kinda questions is worth spending time. Doesn't matter questions are easy or difficult. As straight forward questions help you to review some cramming topics and integrated questions help you to check your concepts and how you implicate them.

UW- Everyone say UW is not "USMLE WORLD" Its like your "Ultimate Warrior" for step 1 prep. and i must say it is Exam had most of same concepts which i studied in UW or anyother Qbank or book but questions were more detailed then UW questions.
and you know what... As i observed WTF questions or What we try to think as experimental are not about weird question but its about its weird "OPTION". So try to understand options properly.

NBMEs- 1-13 NBMEs and 150 free question. They are sample papers of step 1. you will see nearly 10 questions from them. Just direct questions.
When people say "NBMEs are very predictive". I think they are right but let me clear one myth (which i had)- Exam is nothing like NBMEs, Its just your score correlate really well with NBME scores.
I did NBME 11 and 12 online (Did lot of silly mistakes and ended up with- NBME 11- 210 and NBME 12-214). I thought i will avoid those silly mistakes in exam and will try more score but Exam was different and ended up with this score.
At last- In short " Exam is not impossible but its tricky and bit tough."

I know my review is not typical review but these are important things which i like to share with all of you. If anyone have any other quires please feel free to ask. I will be more then happy to reply.
Thanks
Have a great prep.
My opinion is that you got an average scor but if you will get an higher scor at step 2 CK you will be a doctor in our country!! dr. Conrad Fisher said this in one of his book. good luck
