Smile 220 Pass Results

My score arrived today.
220/81 - I'm glad!

NBME -470(12)- 440(11) - 490(7)
UWSA- 490-540

I was using kaplan lectures and HY course. Also, live lectures NMR in Lansing.
Goljan RR was very helpful.

It is very important not feel a stress during the exam!

Good luck for everyone!

Thanks for your inputs!

What did you do (same/differently) between each interval of the self-assessments and how did it helped you to improve your score on the following self-assessments?

Congratulations on your success! I just recently took a NMR class. Do you think it was very helpful in preparing for your exam? I have to admit after I took the class my NBME score has increased. Before my NBMEs were failing scores then I got a 360 converted to a 189. I need to get above a 210. How should I improve more? I'm aiming to take my exam this April. I hope I can be in your shoes one day...PASSING!!!

Do more qs, read Goljan. Pathology on exam probably 65-75%, than microbiology,pharma,
behav, biost,physiol,.,
Mainly correctly evaluate your prep with NBME.

Good luck with your prep! ))
