Default Sorry for the delay

There is no internet where I am working presently.
I have been reading Kaplan review(1-4) black cover lightly for about 6months until I registered 6 months to my exam when i intensified my preparation Read kaplan notes (older version) once, no video.Crammed FA,did U world offline 2008(Little difference to the online i finally subscribed to).
4 wks to my exam , I subscribed to UWORLD had 84%. Left where i am working and i crashed it in less than 3weeks. I discovered my anatomy,genetics, behavioral science were weak.
To improve it, I read genetics road map, read 100 cases of Conrad Fischer in 3 days and did kaplan Q bank anatomy. Did NBME 7 about 9 days to my exam, had 231. I spent the remaining days reviewing my notes and cramming FA.
EXAM Got 4 murmur question, 2 doable without listening, the rest i guessed. Had 2 ECG. Answered the first comfortably, the second i had no idea. Got a lot of graphs and CT scan. I discovered i missed some cheap unheard of questions as i stepped out. I am not sure FA helped me, it all came down to how well do i understand these things. I thank God i got 99, the last 6 weeks were rough and scary, traveling to use the internet.
