What was your study habits like? materials? Did you freak out during the exam?

Also some folks recommend taking more than one NMBE closer to the exam so like 2-1 week before.

That is such a big difference in the NBME score and ur Exam score ??
Well, you do need to figure out what were your weak areas ? Was it concepts or memorization issues or was it just anxiety during the exam ?
Don't give up

hello thanks all!

since it was my second time writing the exam i did medessentials by kaplan (in 2011) and then stuck to FA 2010 (i didnt buy the new one) and usmleworld questions.

everytime i did a nbme i would score low so thats why it took me 2 years to re-write it. Maybe the last one i did (nbme 13th) i do rememeber looking at some answers for re-assurance into first aid while doing the nbme

thats the only thing i can think of that might have caused this mark.

right now i was thinking of doing the new 2013 DIT for 30 days, they make rederences to FA 2013( which i bought now) and step up to medicine 2013. they also have their own course material with 510 open ended questions all for 800$ . i just dont know if thats the right thing to do


anyone?

thanks

you need probably more comprehensive review course , DIT based on FA, so look for something like kaplan or becker(falcon)
good luck!
