Smile smallneve Step 1 Experience (244)

HI GUYS!! I DREAMED ABOUT THIS THREAD!!!!!!!!!

Im so happy and just do not know what to do!!!

My step 1 history:

Im IMG from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. When i was at 4th year of med school, one of my friends told me about USMLE. At this moment i thought: Oh, this is really cool opportunity to test myself, to know do i really good at medicine or not. I thought that this is very hard exam, but from this moment i HAVE dreamed to pass it!
At 5 year of my medschool i started to watch kaplan videos....(i read only anatomy book from kaplan - the old one) - that was only for understanding what step1 wants from ME, what i have to know at exam - at this time i learned some english too.
at summer 2012 between 5 year and 6 year I watched behavioral science video and wrote everything what i saw om screen + i studed GOLJAN!!!
WHEN I SAY STUDED - I mean i read it loudly, sometimes i screamed!!!
after that i watched biochem from kaplan and wrote it too!!!
at the same time i starded doing some free QUESTIONS. AFTER BIOCHEM I STARTED FA. I STUDED IT TWICE + I STUDED UW! When i finished FA i started nbme

nmbe 13 - got 228 (3.3.2013)
nbme 15 - got 235 (3.17.2013)
nbme 12 - got 240 (3.28.2013)
nbme 11 - got 247 (4.4.2013)
nbme 7 - got 240 (4.11.2013)

Exam - 244

what i can say to u guys. I studed UW and FA really hard as well as goljan, but Goljan was used by me 8 months before exam!
Be sure that u really studed FA + UW (EXAM WAS LIKE UW BUT EASIER - BUT i took it before may 13th!) + use nbme to know where u are!

really i do not remember where i did find it:-) the main thing is to read FA after that start to do UW time random mode and read FA when u do Q! that was the main issue! and write down all new thing from UW to FA!

EXam was like UW but easier! of course i had WTF Q. I had Q from all subject. of course pathology is heavily tested:-) i loved goljan because in his book pathology is integrated with another subjects:-)
