Yes in my exam there were many questions on disease prevention and pregnancy.
Dont know any sources to prepare for it though.
Some of them were very easy some were tricky.

Anatomy is tested heavily. FA, UW and Kaplan LN + video was not enough in my case.

Hey what do you mean by tricky? How can UL LL questions be tricky? ı mean if you know the nerves innervate muscles then you should be fine i think. How can they twist anatomy questions more. I am kind of conused

by the way usmle adds some questions in their pool every year. But ı dont think there is a big difference right now cuz if there was they should have notified people

Muscle attachments!? Woah. Do you remember which muscles? Not upper limb I hope :/

My friend took her exam last week and she told me she was tested on Biostats/Behavioral sciences HEAVILY.
