Default post exam study

hello everyone,

I gave my usmle recently, i was thinking of continuing reading and filling up my incomplete knowledge.

but i am confused so was looking out for suggestions from everyone who gave it earlier.

1.) i never read goljan, i used pathoma, so should i read goljan would it be good.

2.) i am weak in genetics and some physio topics but i dont know which book to refer for these topics.

3.) should i read harrissons internal medicine(16th editions) . (i did atleast read 1 topic from it since my exam but as usual confused whether it would be useful)

4.) i thought of studying for step 2ck but as my exam went really bad i wud like to hold step 2 studies till my results.

p.s. - i cannot relax, even watching tv makes me feel that im going dummer.

plzzz suggestions are welcomed,

according to what i went thru, i would recommend going back to kaplan if you have time.

or else you can do uw questions of biochem and genetics.

hope my advice works for you.

p.s. - i would recommend taking some1 elses advice also as my scores were not that gud as other usmleians according to what they post on this forums.

I know its hard to study anything until the result.
Im having the same problem.
Thankfully watching TV helps me big time.

Seriously try to keep your mind off USMLE however possible.
Surely you must have some hobby which can help you.

even if my exam went horrible, today i feel less pathetic than the previous days.

i diagnosed one of my neighbours mother with rectosigmoid adenocarcinoma.

felling happy about some of my diagnosing skills but still worried of my result.

counting days 10 -12 days left.
