Default Exam tomorrow

Hello everyone!

Having an exam tomorrow! Excited, nervous but at the same time feel relieved. There's nothing else I can do at this point, just review and concentrate tomorrow.

But if anyone can give me an advice (from those of you who already took the exam might be really helpful), I'd really really...I mean, really appreciate it

Good luck to everyone!

Make sure you did 138 sample questions on usmle.org. I saw 7-8 repeated questions!
Best of luck!

Thanks a ton!!! How about usmle-Rx or Kaplan? Do you think I should do questions again? You know, just refresh my memory.

And once again, Thanks!!!

Hello to everyone again!

So exam is over. And I have a veeeeery strong feeling I failed it. But anyway, gotta wait for another 2 months to get results (July 9th) which sucks big time.
My biggest advice: have a good night sleep!!!! I didn't, though I read in so many posts that I SHOULD. It was a fight with blocks. And another advice, do at least once one 8-hour practice. I didn't, so it was difficult to concentrate throughout the exam. If your prometric center offers that, do it.

Good luck to everyone!

Thanks a lot, but as I said, gotta do the 1st step again, for sure. As for questions I didn't have a clue about, guess about 10-15, mostly on statistics. Nothing from FA, actually. And another piece of mind, do micro pictures!

P.s. I marked everything, as wrong answers don't influence your score. I could review 4-5 questions. If I didn't have a clue about the answer I was just marking it to review it, and most of the time I had time to go back to it.

Dear Curacao,

I did not do any NBME's actually. I started a few times offline forms, but never really finished those. Mistake? Probably )

I wouldnt call it a Mistake... Did you do any test to assess where you are in Terms of knowledge.. E.g. Uwsa?
Would it have helped to know First Aid cold in The exam?

Thanks for taking your time

I did a lot of Kaplan and Usmle-RX, and did also the example questions. Knowing FA cold would definitely help. I was so messed up with all this no sleep thing, that I couldnt remember the simplest things. So make sure you know the answers, even if someone just wakes you up in the middle of the night

Did you do Uworld? Or any Website that has pictures besides those in FA? I think you will be Fine. For ck try to get a good night sleep:-)

I discovered usmlestat.com a couple of weeks ago (wish it was earlier). It has a lot of questions plus many of those using visual aids. So it might become quite handy. But I guess FA should be enough (maybe?).

So how many times did you actually do First Aid cover to cover? You never touched Uworld besides UsmleRX and Kaplan Qbank?
You should definitely do it for CK.
