Hey!!

which qbanks have you finished so far? How many times did you read FA? What did you do for patho? Did you rely on solely pathoma?

I need some advice for my last 2 months.

ı dont know whether it will relieve you or not but ı havent heard of anyone got less than nbme 15 in step 1. Nbme 15 is one of the hardest.

Default Hey guys!

Hey guys! I am also sitting for the exam in June. I was just browsing through and saw this thread and thought I should join!

Quick question for you all. I am doing FA/UW/DIT/Pathoma and my goal is 235. Last week I gave NBME 12 and scored a 211. Do you have any suggestions on how I could improve my score? I am planning on doing NBME 13 this weekend to see my improvements. Your advice is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance

Baris: Just stick to FA UW and NBME last 2 months!

Tayeb: I can understand that. Analyse your mistakes, Im sure there will be many silly ones. I scored 245 on 15 and still found 5 stupid mistakes that I should not have done.

undecided: I suggest you read FA well.
Form 13 is pretty much from FA from what little I remember(I did it offline two months back)

Ill try to upload my exam exp when Im done.
Fingers crossed ;-)

This is what ı ve heard. I havent taken it yet. I think questions should be more twisted or something. ı actually just wanted to give some positive energy I dont believe any correlations NBME provides at all.

Thanks!
Ill post about the exam ASAP.

16 is harder than 15 in my opinion.
15 has many straight recall questions.
16 has mostly thinking based questions.

What Baris says is true.
NBME scores dont guarantee anything, but a good score does give you some much needed confidence :-)

Default step 1 compared to uworld

Hey guys!!

Just wanted to know if anyone know what the Step 1 is like compared to Uworld regarding question style, high yield facts, etc. To anyone who has taken in the exam in the past month, would you say Step is tougher or around the same level of difficulty? Thanks so much!

Hi ! I'd advise you to 1) take a deep breath and RELAX 2) revise the areas you are weak at as per Nbme/qbanks.. Goodluck!
