We'll see in 2 days haha?
I found it was easier than any of the NBMEs and pretty straight forward for the most part. The questions were on the level of UW or easier - some were very straight forward. However, I had a problem with time for some reason I missed 3 q's from my first block, I just hope that doesn't bite me in the ass..

Came out of the exam thinking I did horrible. But apparently that is how everyone feels?

Yeah but I always had a problem with time. I usually read Q's twice and never go back to review.
Yeah there were certainly a few or more that I knew later I picked the wrong answer, but then there were also those that I thought I picked the wrong answer/wasn't sure about that turned out to be right when I looked them up later.

No point mulling over spilled milk though - just gotta wait it out I guess! Honestly, what I learnt from the exam experience is that all the 'demons in your head' about the difficulty of the exam etc are false. The exam is pretty straight forward and if you keep your calm and take it as just another block of Q's from UW, it is very very very doable.

Quick question - did you tag this thread with 'every wednesday?'.

I noticed when I clicked that on the main forum, this thread didn't show up! Maybe that is why there are't that many replies here..? Or maybe we're the only two people that took it while everyone else was out enjoying the good weather haha!

Default Failed step1, I thought I did good, I need help.

I thought I did good. This is my second time taking it. I took it September 30th and I'm currently studying for the CS. What should I do, take the CS now and then the step 1, or take the step 1 first then the CS. I am devastated. But I don't want to give up. I know I can do this, and I have people that can help get into residency. Can anybody give me an idea please.

I think you should concentrate only on Step 1 and pass it! With an extreamly high score
