Default Do you ever feel completely ready for Step 1?

For those that have taken the exam, did you feel 100% ready for the exam? I feel like there are always questions on NBMEs that I have never seen before in any resources.

Did you find that your last NBME exam before Step 1 correlated well?

Thanks.

the question I always ask myself... would I ever come across the topics that are asked on NBMEs of which I never heard before...

I answer myself:"Probably not..."

I felt as ready as I could be.

I knew that I could have studied more and spent more time and money on question banks. I still felt a little weak in certain areas. But there just came a point where I just had to go for it (I didn't want to prolong the pain any longer!) I was happy with my Step 1 result.

Good luck in your prep. I think it's realistic to not feel 100% ready.

Thanks, thats pretty much how I feel. I've gone thru everything I can - there will always be weaknesses.
