First Aid If Step 1 was an open book exam with First Aid, how much you will score?

for IMGs, providing little basic science knowledge recall from medical school.

It depends... are you allowing me access to my heavily annotated copy of FA that has a bunch of extra material in it from pathoma and UWorld?

haha!

Seriously though, why are you asking this question? Is it to see if FA is enough to do well on Step? I think it is, but you say you don't remember a lot of your basic science. FA is a review book, plain and simple. It will not teach you concepts, nor will it be good if you have no idea how to apply basic concepts.

to be honest.. with a FA in hand while doing the exam it wont be surprising if u get 260..balmost entire exam is from FA.. (at least mine was like that)

but its not a good idea to think abt impossible things so i wud advice u to put FA in ur brain and keep it open inside urhead in the exam.. :-)
