I had finished all my unused so i saw about 5 more this morning. and they are all in the internal Medicine with biostatistics section.
P.S Does anyone know if these abstracts are experimental or actually counted for points on the USMLE.

lol...i seriously think they are adding these questions to throw people off and make them waste time..>So if i come across any i am skipping them till the end..I'll take my chances on whatever time ihave left towards the end. First they maybe experimental who knows and second they cant be worth that much since they just started using them. *_*

True...I completely agree and that is a good strategy for these questions.

yes but there will always be some q which we do wrong and in addition to those these will increase number of wrong q. As this are going to be 10-15 mostly plus some which we may tick wrong so it will effect score...

Is any way to prepare for this q or any online book because i was thinking i may loose this 15q + i am poor at psy and certain topics like cancer screening so altogeather i dont know how many i may score....

So i have to be prepared well with all the weak points and no excuse. i am too getting scared with these bio abstract thing......

so far the ones i have done are related to a huge article about a clinical trial and then an associated question stem. It boils down to statistics and the use of p value and horizontal ratios and the 2nd part is tied down to a biostat question looking for a type of study design... SO i think the best thing would be to strengthen ur biostat really good and look over p value interpretations

Nooo way i could do anything with it............i think i have to strengthen other weak areas really good because what you mentioned from that maximum chance of getting the question wrong from my knowledge view so cant do anthing which is not in hand ...can bother only about things which i can work out........let c what people have to say who are going to attempt exam before i,e real exam experience......

i agree....based on pure chance if u get even 25% correct..count ur blessings and move on..There are alot of other areas you can get points in...It doesnt make sense to include these right away when schools havent even adopted these measure of teaching students...blahhhh

That why I seriously think these will remain experimental until the point where schools do start training their students on 'em. This is something general that I've heard, that is something is on the MLE but not yet taught at US Med schools, the likelihood of those questions being experimental is very high.

Does anyone know for sure when these questions will be added to the test ,on the USMLE.org website they said starting from Aug. and in another news update they posted on or around Aug. 3rd the no. of questions will be changed ,does that mean the same thing ?? My test is on Aug.1st am done with my UW subscription and frankly I don't have extra time to prepare for those questions ,any answer will be helpful .

@Kais_MD: Just practice reading/skimming questions quickly or material quickly in general. It's a good skill to have for the Step 2. I don't know about you but I prefer reading the question at the end and then reading the rest of the material to find the answer. Sometimes you don't even need the lab values lol. I don't think the questions will count for you because you're taking the exam before the 3rd. Don't stress. I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck on your exam! Please tell us about the experience after you're done.

@usmle dee: I think reading abstracts is kind of already taught to a certain degree in US medical schools. In one of the rotations I did in a US hospital, the attending wanted me to look up the latest research material on all the patients I helped manage. It's expected of medical students in many university affiliated hospitals to skim through research material quickly to find points relevant to their patient. The pharmacology ads are a different story though lol. I don't think anyone gets any training on those yet. I'm a lil worried about that part.

I took the test August 2 and got 4 blocks with new format questions. Very difficult. Don't know if got them right or not, but not easy at all.

Each one of the 4 blocks had either an abstract or drug add question with 2-3 items. Can't disclose exactly what they where asking but basically questions regarding interpretation of study results, clinical application of results, biases, why a particular result was not reliable given the study type or selection process, etc.

I think is going to be difficult to practice and be prepared for these kind of questions because the possibility of topics or particular questions to be ask is too broad and interpretation answer options can be tricky.

2 questions i can deal with and that means i'll have to get everything else right....If you ask me i doubt it would count toward points as its too early..They just introduced this concept into test. they cant possibly penalize students to the full extent....Crossing my fingers :X

I hope they don't count either. About the Step 1 formulas, I got 2 questions (BESIDES the new format questions) that directly asked to calculate something.

That stuff is second nature now....Even the new Ad questions are easy...Its the abstract that are rediculously hard...and out of 42 question if you get 2 to 4 wrong. it kills your percentage.... again i am hoping they dont count.. thanks for the Info ....by the way how much harder was it than the free test on usmle.org

Way harder in my opinion. "Bizarre" might be a good word to describe it. I felt that the topics asked where different than those commonly asked by UW for example. Time management was an issue too. Also the fact that the new format question caught me off guard. I thought I was on the safe zone by taking the test before the 3rd, but when I saw those questions, that totally shocked me. Hoping for the best.

What exactly do u mean by the new format. and if u did the usmle free questions..>How much did you get....n you do have to understand that a good block and a half of those questions dont count because they are experimental...they throw those at you specially in the begining to dishearten you.

Try printing it out from that website instead of reading it directly from the computer screen. That's what I did. No headache and no going cross eyed that way lol.

Thank you ,,,
Well the test was exhausting as expected ,,,actually I don't think reading micro and patho from step one is necessary at all ,most of the infection questions were direct ,didn't require specific basic knowledge ,same thing for Pathology ,,,,the questions in general weren't that long ,I did UW self-assessment and didn't have enough time in 2 blocks while during the real test I had few extra minutes to check the marked questions ,had only few very long questions,,,I would say the test is not easier than step one but less intimidating ,most of the time you will be familiar of what the question is hinting or talking about unlike some of the questions in step one when I had no idea what was it about .


Please let me know if you have any other question ,,,Good luck

cuz i a left with 8 blocks and even now unable to do more than 2 blocks per day with explanations! i was aiming for 3/day to give more time for revision, but it didn't work out. do you think it's all due to the stress?

1st time around its virtually impossible to do more than 2 blocks a day....1 block takes an hour to do and a good two hours to review...so with 2 blocks thats 6 hours of your day gone...and you definitly need another 6-8 hours to complete reviewing other material. Towards the end Doing 3 even 4 blocks is possible..because most of the answers are second nature to your and when it comes to reviewing you know most of them so all you have to do is finish reviewing about 8 questions a block.....as far as fatigue goes i think it has a tremendous effect on test taking...I have done horrible studying consecutively for days and taking a test...versus taking a day or two off and taking a test...I guess thats the reasoning to take the last two days off with just a simple 3 hour quick review and enjoy the rest of the time....hope it helps...
Cerebrum...i'll have to look and see..the questions are lost in my previous banks...

Well guys, I have done all the questions regarding about the new topics. For questions about abstracts and one about drug advertising. Here my conclusions:

For abstract questions:

1. When you face this new format, read the question FIRST. Make sure you understand what they are asking.
2. Once you read it, look for the information you need in the abstract. This is the long part.
3. If you find it fast, fine. If you don't, you should make a guess, mark the question and move on.

For advertising questions:

1. This questions were easier, the same thing, you should read the question first.
2. Look for the information in the advertising
3. If you cannot answer, make a guess an move on.


It would be fine to review some topics:

*Hazard ratios.
*Types of clinical trials.
*The link that cool_atomic posted seems good too.

I agree with the point that you must know basic concepts of biostatistics. At least know how to deal with a 2 x 2 table, the sensitivity, specificity, PPV, NPV definitions. Also, to recognize when to use Chi square, t score and ANOVA could be useful.

If you have any subscription to any medical journal, you will find tons of advertising material in which you can practice.

I am going to take my exam this August 10th, so this is going to be one of my last posts until then. Good luck to all you guys.

I am gonna take the 4th..Everyone and everywhere i searched 4 is apparently more consistent with CK... and to be honest i am tired i am gonna take a day break n take the damn exam and then review till 2 days before....Last two days just chill and read my notecards....Have you noticed how u do really good on the 1st and 2nd block and then ur like blah n just wanna get it over with lol ....I think the mental exhaustion plays a big role in bad scores.....So take ample time off before you sit down....

yeah, the this is more of a mind game than to test the medical knowledge of the student. this time, i am gonna take breaks after each and every block on the real thing, at least 5 minutes and wash my face with water, at least that way i'll remain awake till the last block
btw, whats ur plan for exam day? breaks, snacks, etc..

Get enough sleep in..I live in Dc so i have to leave 2 hours before the test starts to be able to find parking and not hurry lol ... and like you said take enough break between each block and hold my self from looking at a book during beaks lol...and have a good glucose drink ready to sip on during the breaks...Hopefully not freak out..I literally walked out on step 1 lol ..i called my brother n he yelled at me to go back n finish the exam...basically i freaked out cuz i passed with a good score first time...Its just that the 1st two blocks i was like OK i fail lol....Damn mind games..I wont let them get to me this time...

hey there were two qns in usmle.org which were ridiculously simple...n i was thinking they had incorporated these qns just to give the people taking the exam a break from the intense 9 hour struggle, at the same time, testing their basics.....

i guess uworld just made it harder....

uworld is designed to be harder.....they admit it openly and it's even written on the qbank's 1st screen! hope it's easier than those on uw on the real test!

hey kais_md:
since you did the UWSA already, can you tell me if the questions in there "make sense"? because i happened to take usmleconsult self assessment and i saw all kinds of weird things, things that i'd never be able to even imagine in my worst dreams ever in the test. Though i scored 65% average of 3 blocks and the graph there says equal to 250, their calculations are based on 50-100 students' results only. donno if i can depend on them, i just did it cuz i had a free subscription and some free time.

Ms patho is right in some regards.>But i think its pretty doable..I took UWSA when i only did like 40% of uWORLD...and i got a 208...when i looked back i did miss some really dumb questions like OCP protects against Ovarian cancers lol...my advice if your gonna do an assessment u should stick to UWSA and NBME...as for usmle consult i dont know their reputation. SOme Qbanks deliberately make it hard just to impress people to buy their qbanks. So stick with whats indicative of the new exam...
ps...Have you guys see the usmle RX qbank..or is that the same thing..I tried a bit and its rediculous lol

they sure made it look hard...i just did it because of the subscription that these forums gave for free sometime ago....why to waste it!
and i am also gonna stick to uwsa and nbme 4 and free 150 only because i don't wanna do anything "strange" before the big day.
all these usmleRx and usmleconsult are from the "Same Family"! lol they just wanna steal uworld's market share, that's it! lets see what happens!

well...if you havent taken any nbme's i suggest you take 4 instead of 2..i did 2 to see where i stand literally 6 weeks ago...and that thing is hard...i got a 380 which was after i tookk uWSA...so with a score of 200 in the real exam i was really bummed out...after some research i found that nbme2 is troublesome for everyone and alot harder but that nbme4 was more indicative of the real test and apparently everyone did nbme4...So if you dont have alot of time left.>do a detailed review and take nbme 4...Like coolatomic said..Stay away from freaky stuff that will bring down your hopes...as its hard to correct nbme's online..they dont give u an option and you have to take it online because the questions are weighted differently so you cant really grade yourself...

i think you have to answer them atleast once before being able to review through the custom mode and it is for review only.
I suggest you to start a test with only biostatistics in untimed tutor mode and read these questions from there.
