USMLEWorld Took UWSA 1

So I just took my very first assessment. I felt SUPER tired during the last few questions of the 4th block. I definitely have to keep on doing questions so that I don't feel so tired.

For those of you that don't know I just finished going through the kaplan videos, I've gotten to biochemistry nutrition in FA (started from page 1) and this is my first run through FA. I take my test on July 1st and so I plan on going through FA at least 2 more times. My score on the assessment was a 204, not great but I think it's a good starting point. What do you guys think?

Default Great Score

Hey I think we're in the same boat! I have my exam in last week on June and I am just finishing up Kaplan Notes and Videos. I should be done by end of april and then start qbanks and FA from may. I think 204 is a great score without any FA reading or anything. Is kaplan all that you've done so far ? And im guessing you're doing Uworld and FA now ? as that is my plan also for later on!

Yes all I did was go through Kaplan videos, I didn't REALLY read the lecture notes. I made note and I go back to it if I don't understand something in FA or in the UW explanation. I'm doing FA and UW now and I'm planning on taking an assessment every 2 weeks to see my progress and then 1 weekly the last couple of weeks.

No one that has taken the test has any feedback??? :sorry:

Well.. 204 is good, but you must bear in mind that USWA doesnt quite match upto NBME.. so to get a good assessment it would be preferable if you take an NBME.. Preferably online so that you will know the areas you are weak in
