Default Recent Step 1 Takers, Guide Us

Dear people,
I have recently seen posts saying that there are extensive changes in the pool of step 1. Newer weird questions are pouring in. How much real it is?

FA n UW was once the key and still the veterans of these exams suggest the same. Can you guide further in it?

Is it really UW/FA combo with NBME assessments an old key to success, if old then what can be done to change our outlook towards this exam? Guide us well.

Depends on what is ur aim: if 240-250+ this combo is still working.If 260+ I'd added smth like HY Gross anatomy. My score is 253 and I used this combo (Kaplan + UW + FA) - was enough in 70-80% of questions.
P.S. Very important point - use ONLY ON-LINE UW! They constantly change their q pool to make it closer to recent exam pattern. Good luck!
