there is no actual correlation table I can offer you but I've noted that the highest scorers have anything between 80-90%
what was your % in the test?

i have mine too in the same 3 weeks but have not taken it yet, but some of the elite members on this forums (haisook: 256/99 had 85% and tkourkou 261/99 had 90%) so it was an assumption......this is not like the nbme but people say that these concepts are highly tested on the exam.
I'll take mine in a week...hoping things go right!!!

am left with 25% of uworld to be completed by 9th august, then i go for my uworld notes, kln notes (about 150 pages) and MTB-2CK alongside UWSA AND FREE 150. Still haven't decided on NBME but i guess i'll take NBME4 1 week to the exam.
Pretty tight schedule, i know, but this pressure makes me work 16 hrs a day.
Guess everything goes perfectly as per schedule cuz i have no way of postponing the date and can't take the exam till next year; so wish me luck!

hey iron, i did not do kaplan qbank because many people recommended against it due to the quality of questions. I believe uworld will be enough but i can't tell you definitively because i haven't taken the exam yet. I did do kaplan QBOOK and i think it's ok to do it once. The question pools in qbanks are updated regularly and i don't think doing offline is a good idea, but if you have lots of time (like an extra 1.5 month to spare) or if you can't afford one, you may consider doing offline qbanks.
If you meant CK, my exam is on 23rd august. I will be taking CS in january next year.

i am done with world and doing it over again with a score of 90's. it helps cement the previous knowledge. So for the next 3 weeks its MTB and a section from internal Med book everyday while reviewing my world notes and taking about 3 tests a day. I'll take nbme4 as well but somewhere around august 15. This is it so no turning back lol. Good luck to you and update whenever you can.

Hmm well if you dont have the questions how do u have the answers....and regardless if you dont have the question you wouldnt know how they worded them...which makes a huge difference...one thing i noticed was they are easy question but require a little thought process by eliminating minute things...So its best if you do the whole thing in a test format..Nothing beats that

if it says "fatal error, inform the proctor" on a black screen, then leave it like that and run the usmle file again with the error on the background, that way, it will start. just a trick that worked on my pc, especially when it's windows 7
