Sana its difficult to know whats the prob unless u say how u studied and the materials used ?
Also what are the weak areas according to the Nbme ? Did u do UWSA ?? When is ur exam ? .Since u averaged 70 % in Uworld ,you basic concepts and Multi step thinking pattern is upto the mark !

Heu iam too planning to give in OCT NOV DEC window !!

Iam a slow learner and my recall ability is low.....hence even if memorize i know that i wont be able to recall it later on ........so from others advice i have decided to overcome that by doing loads n loads of questions

started with patho - big topic,most imp for step 1 [thanks goljan !!]

already started a week back !!anyways gave it a month ! First read fast just to understand concepts ,then second read with audio, Does Robbins path Q to consolidate ,add extra notes and just go thru the margin notes [only the blue notes/tables and memorize the FA and Bluenotes....but so far very slow...think its the starting probs

Next gonna do Physio : Bought BRS Physio and Pre-test physio...............gonna do the B RS online Qs and Pretest to consolidate the concepts
After that start doing Anatomy,biochem...the usual order......and start my 3 month subscription to Kaplan Qbank .once i do finish patho n physio.......and then start doing the ques from then the covered topic...........first finish all patho,physio and pathophysio....then once i finsh anatomy......do mixed of anatomy,and patho,physio and pathophysio....and like that keep on adding the topic i finish to the mixed mode...till i cover all the topic and finish Qbank

My target is to get >70 % in kaplan Qbank,finish all topics and atleast give two reads of FA in 4-5 months !!




Ok QBanks ...i would advise you to do both Kaplan and UWorld....so many who wrote recently has said that step exam was more similar to kaplan that Uworld ....and others vice versa !! ...



Ok so once all this is done ...Uworld and nbme !!...Do a nbme paper to see where i stand ...then start Uworld...try to finish it in 1 months ......target is >75 % ...redo all the wrong Qs....then do nbme again ....if i reached my target >240 in nbme then i will do the Step if not extend it !!
