Default Exam on 23rd April - 5 weeks to go!

So I'm almost done with UWorld once - getting around 69% there. KLN read 4-5 times. (My Step 1 prep has been going on for quite much over a year - had to take a long gap of many months for personal reasons so don't become alarmed by my 4-5 reads - it didn't happen in one stretch!)

Kaplan Q bank 80% complete with an average score of about 70-75% depending on what subject I'm doing.

Path, Physio, Biochem, Micro, Pharm seem to work best for me, in that order.

Haven't done any NBMEs yet and frankly, I'm nervous about that.

At this point, I'm just trying to keep doing as many questions as I can, possibly start doing more NBMEs offline and ONE NBME online on 30th March.

My weak areas: Some micro, some pharm, some anatomy and Immunology. And of course, every IMGs achilles heel - Behavior! But getting better there with readings of CF's Ethics book.


So basically, I'm trying to stay grounded and try to read FA more - especially the systems part - and get into all those hard-to-retain facts like anti-arrythmic drug uses, receptor signalling mechanisms, oncogenes, antibiotic classes etc. Also checking out pictures at WebPath!

If you have some free advice to pass on, I'd appreciate it much!
