Smile 99...my score n more!!

hi everybody!!

i got my result last night....234/99..

to be frank i was somewhat disappointed..i really thought i deserved more..but then am glad it's not like a 98 or 97...
my score tells me i am good but not as good as i'd thought i was..
i have a long way to go ..this was just one step after all.

i shared my exam experience here
My step 1 exam Experience


well basically for all of u waiting for ur score...its out by 10 am eastern time on wednesdays only..so good luck wid it..

my suggestion to all still preparing is u are never going to be so confident that you know it all and you dnt need to knw it all..just enough..
kaplan lecture notes/audio/fa/uworld/kaplan qbank/nbme offline/fred 150 ques were my resources...
y mange ur time well and don't panic on the exam day...they will give u experimental questions just to distract u..dnt get distracted other wise u'll make mistakes in simple questions..
read the question till the very last line..

congratulations to all the high scorers and all the luck to those preparing!!!!!

this forum n the members rock..they are super helpful..every doubt i ever had was solved here..i own u guys alot..!!!!!
hope the journey for step 2 ck is as beautiful..i really enjoyed studying for step1.

Congrats on the great score!!!!

By Audio, do you mean Goljan Audio?

Did you do KLN with the corresponding videos for all the subjects?


I read you other thread but just wanted to clarify these things..

So basically you used = KLN + Kaplan Videos + FA + UW?

Thankyou and congrats again!!

Default hi there :)

congrats on the great results.. nice work
i dont know how to say it but i can really use ur help her.. see i'm newly graduated like a month ago n i need to do step 2 so as to be able to get into an internship somewhere but the problem is i dont know where to begin with...
i have gone through some of the books of kaplan,, n some first aid.. but i didnt really start to actually reading them.. so my questions are
1- how did u prepaire for ur exam
2- i need to set for the exam next june so is there enough time for me
3- ppl say that study partners are very helpfull.. but i dont know how to et them online nor how to study so can u explain that????

thanx

@pacific- i got an avg of 75 % in kaplan qbank n abt 68-69% in uworld...
dint do any of the official forms..just offline nbme7..which u must do..
they were close i'd say..but i never used n actual predictor


@ step1saga=yeah those were my references..

n i meant the video no audios though if u hv the time theyare suppossed to b good.n i did the videos wid the first reading of the lecture notes.


@doha 23-u plan to take step 2 first? or step 1?
i know the books are a bit overwhelming but u have to get started..i prepared in 6 mnths for step1 n plan 4 mnths for 2...so i guess u'll b ready by june next yr...u hv time dnt worry..
i dint hv any study partner just friends preparing for the same...n so it is helpful if u hv someone doing the same..u can discuss how much u studied...what all..questions etc....but dnt discuss all this wid alot of ppl as everyone will give u their suggestions n confuse u...ppl postpone exams endlessly then..

all the best to u!! let me knw what else u guys wanna knw...i'll try my best to ans

@adrenaline rush- it a good idea to stat uworld after atleast one reading of kaplan..i started after 2 readings!!and also i suggest u do it in random blocks from the very beginning.

@doha23-i havent taken step 2 ck yet but i guess 5 mnths shud b more than enough..check the ck thread for this..
n uworld start preferrably after 1 reading..goodluck!!
