Default can anyone who took step this year give their advice on the anatomy portion?

how much anatomy is being asked?

did you think it was sufficient with qbanks + FA?

what did you use to study for anatomy?

what would you recommend now that you have already taken the exam?


thank you all!

I had maybe 1-2 questions asking pure anatomy,
and I am pretty sure I answered them both wrong.

Dont bother.

Study pathology

you can get many anatomy Qs, know very well all major muscles their actions, nerve supply, origins and actions of all cranial nerves, pituitary anatomy and hormone origins, pay great attention to NBME anatomy Qs as well.no one can tell how many anatomy Qs can anyone gets in real exam, be well prepared to pass at first attempt.

thank you all!
I did my step one in December of last year and I got very few anatomy questions that weren't neuroanatomy. Just know the brachial plexus and it's injuries and palsies very well. Most questions are joke easy. Stuff like injury to the axillary nerve limits which movement at the shoulder joint?? First aid and uworld are more than enough. Neuro is totally different. You have to be able to identify structures on gross specimens. Stuff like where do senile plaques occur in Alzheimer's.......You need to be able to point out the location.
