nbme 7 is the most accurate wrt step 1

so u may get +/- 10 max from 220

I did above average pretty much on all subjects. But I've done average on general principles of health and disease plus cardiovascular system.

For anatomy - you have to know the Brachial plexus injuries and Lumber plexus injuries .. that's all.

For Neuro - I recommend you to read "Neuroanatomy ridiculously made easy"

hi, i did NBME 6 and managed to get only 210, in NBME 7 I got 220, I am aiming for a score of 230+, my exam is in 10 days time. Is it doable or totally impossible as many say, NBME is the exact predictor.

Its doable, know everything from those NBMEs 6 and 7 plus UW. Do 150 FRED free qns b4 the day of exam. Keep doing the qns. you will be fine.

Good luck.

Its normal to get low scores initially. I got the same thing but I was kept doing more qns on the same topics and got high scores. When I got the qn wrong, I marked it and took notes from the explanation, and read the wrong answers as well.

Don't just feel bad when you get the qn wrong. Just read the qn again carefully and know where you make that mistake and know what you are missing... This way you will understand the concept very well.

Hurrah! That's excellent - you sure deserved it! (I can't believe I missed this thread until now...). I know that, when we do well too, it will be in part to your great questions and discussion on this forum.

Now on to step 2!

thank u for replying .ok so i hope that it works out for me too, i read ur posts, you used to write down the questions, my aim is to get 250, I hope that i can attain it, i wish to get into surgery. but yes i agree with you that i should read the question again and understand it better. I don't know how low did you get. i have been trying to find out if ppl who actually end up some where 50s in uworld, do work harder and understand the concepts better by revising it better and more and who were average students in their medical school do attain 99..! your suggestion will be appreciated.
