i did kaplan lecture notes thrice, first aid four times.. uworld i have not reviewed fully.. have a major part left.. don think that i would be able to finish uworld in whatever time i have left .. so far this has been my course.. and yeah had a lot of disruptions because i am the first one to apply from my college and the paper work took a very long time...

ya i did kaplan videos with lectures for all but a few subjects ( pharm ,BS , Neuroanatomy and biostatistics were the best among them.. u could do away with the other lectures.. especially the physiology).. for pathology .. more than which book to adhere.. it is better to integrate it with uworld.. because the way they test you in the exam does not seem to be addressed in any particular book. But that said.. i did both kaplan and goljan( Please don waste your time on golljan audios.. i did that mistake).. It took me seven months to reach where i am now.. but i don't know if i can take the stress anymore.. so giving the exam..

Dear MedicineDoc, I am sorry for the late reply.. have been travelling.. Kaplan neuroanatomy is enough and it is way too detailed i reckon. . as for High yield neuroanatomy i don know much because i tried using it and got frustrated straight away.. too many points.. ya.. u have to do first aid whether u like it or not.. definitely high yield and very important for your preparation. as for pathology i think uworld and kaplan goljan integrated is really enough.. all you need is to know different ways to approach a question.. goljan i reckon is very fact oriented.. you won get so many point oriented questions i think..
By the way my exam is tomorrow.. Maybe i could elaborate more after my exam.. Have not been studying for the past 3 days....

Unhappy Post-step 1

Hi guys,
gave my step one 10 days back.. the exam was way too tough than the nbme s( i had taken all NBME s available) seriously felt like i had screwed it up.. to make things worse i started remembering aroung 7-8 silly mistakes that i committed.. at the start i was looking at something above 240 s.. but right now anything above the american average would be good for me.. very anxious and depressed.. my NBME s
Form 7 :235 (8 weeks before exam)
Form 12 : 233 (6 weeks before exam)
Form 13 : 235 (4 weeks before exam)
UWSA 1 : 263 (4 weeks before exam)
At that point i was in a dilemma as to whether i should take up the exam.. as i still had just started uworld qbank.. I postponed the exam for a month .. and it still got postponed because of the entire crash and the fiasco of prometric centres in India.. somehow got a slot one week beyond the previously postponed date.. travelled all the way to delhi and took it up.. ya and as i said before took two NBMEs one week prior to the exam date..
Form 11 : 250
Form 6 :247
Now am expecting the results.. but i am seriously expecting the worst.. Is it just me or everybody feels the same way after the exam? how much questions can one probably afford to miss for a 240? i am really freaking out.. need some help guys..

I'm sure this exam is a fair exam. You paid, then you'll gain. Trust in yourself. You'll ace it!
BTW, what did you do in your last week? I have almost the same scores as you have regarding NBME 11 and USWA. My exam is in ten days. Please, i need your advise.

Can you please tell me that which nbmes were your pre U world because what i am getting is that from nbme7toUWSA1 were before starting U world and rest after???
If that is the case can you tell me how hard you felt were nbmes esp 7&12 after only doing multiple kaplan and F.A reads.
Best Luck for your result

Dear Ehtishaam.. it would be better if you take the NBMEs after you complete your uworld.. I did a mistake of taking it before doing uworld fully.. please do not repeat the same mistake..given that you have 2 more months.. i would strongly suggest that you complete your review of uworld and first aid and then do NBMEs to find out where you stand.. good luck for your preparation

Dear tangled.. Thanks a lot for your post and yea.. my exam did not go the way i expected it would go.. felt really terrible after the exam and to be honest.. the wait for the result has been the worst part in my life so far.. really agonizing.. am happy now seeing the results.. one more reason why i was terrified was the exam was very hard compared to the NBME s i took and looked more like the harder blocks of uworld qbank.. so everyday i was expecting the worst.. at a point i even thought i would flunk.. thanks to god and his grace.. it turned out to be good score.. all is well that ends well

Dear drsurge,
I managed burn out s by taking day outs for every week so that interest in the preparation does not fade.. typically a day or two every week.. and in each day i would resolve not to work more than 8-10 hours.. pushing yourself to extremely long study hours a day makes you tired at the end of the day and also makes studying the next day harder.. Whenever you feel that you can not move ahead with your preparation , just take time out and do things that you like.. like hanging out with friends .. watching movies etc.. as far as the hard stuff in your prep materials there is no way that you are going to get a good score by avoiding those.. so better do the hard stuff during the start of the day so that you will be fresh and retain more stuff and the fatigue would not kill.. Hope this helps

dear seeker,
I did questions after i completed the subject, doing questions after you finish each chapter does not prove useful as you do not forget much.This test , or atleast a part of it is about how much you retain and hence doing questions at the end of each chapter would give you a sense of false reassurance.. and coming to the books.. there is no other way.. you have to spend time on them to get good scores.. hope this helps..

Dear usmleprep_sr,
I dont know how much i missed.. for me it was like 25 questions a block were plain simple. had to think for around 10 questions , but can work the answer and around 7-8 questions were plain hard and the remaining were a bit more of WTF???? And blocks 1,3, 5 and 7 were really hard compared to 2,4,6. Overall i should have missed anwhere between 50-60 questions for a 248 , i think.. But you never know.. might have been more, might have been less , only god knows.. Do not speculate on your score and enjoy your free time because i wasted all my free time being anxious about my scores.. you should get whatever you got on your NBMEs ,at least my experience and experiences of many other people in this forum turned out that way..let me know how much you get.. hope that you hit a nice score

Correct Answer

Dear Sravya,
The fact that you are hitting above 230 s one month ahead of your exam shows that you are in great shape.. just keep the good work going.. i need to know what you have done until now to comment or suggest future course of action.. could you please tell me what you did for your prep until now? I did uworld in the last month.. nothing else..
