Help Question for RECENT test takers!

Hi, I just had a quick question for the people who took step 1 recently...I have been hearing that on the recent tests (I think after they changed the format of the test) there has been more emphasis on Anatomy...I want to know is that true? If so, can you please tell me a guess of how many questions did you have on Anatomy. Also, can you please tell me what were the main subjects that were tested on your exam heavily (ex: path, pharm, anatomy, etc.). Thank you for your help, and may God bless you!

P.S. do you think just doing FA and USMLE world is enough for anatomy? Or more studying is needed for anatomy?

Since every exam is different, there is no way to predict what you should be studying. You just need to study everything. Know the upper and lower plexus and your bones of the wrist and legs. Also know the innervations of the nerves of the upper brachial plexus.

study neuroanatomy. know the parts of the brain and what they do.

You can ask the original posters of those threads if they have seen more anatomy than usual.
Go for the recently posted threads (not the old ones) so that you get an idea of the recent exam format.
