Unhappy Step 1: I just defeated myself

Hi Everyone,

Four weeks ago I took an assessment and did better than I thought I would have (232). Today, the day before my exam, I couldn't help it so I took another one just to calm my nerves and scored -- 204! What do I do? I've been studying for this monster for several months now-- FA I don't even know how many times, UW online and I took notes into two large notebooks which I review. I also used Pathoma and took down detailed notes, made flash cards, etc-- some sections I watched twice just so it would stick. Read Costanzo both textbook and BRS. I don't know where I'm going wrong. I don't think I want to take that exam tomorrow :-/. Any advice?

Take another NBME right now...if your score is consistent with your most recent score....And that is not your target score range. Post pone the test.
