Exam-Results

I just got CK result today.

229/99

Here's my experience thread;
Just over with CK

My preparation was 3 months. There are my reference as follows,
Kaplan CK Lecture notes, MTB-CK, First Aid for the CK, For medicine: Harrison's

In addition, usmle-forums posts and high yield posts as I did not much time and was studying for CS at the same time.

Daily 8 hours (except Sunday) for 2 months and 11 hours for last month.

Use Kaplan and U world three months.

UWSA: 220 not have time to do NBME (this is my mistake)

Rest for three days before exam. just searching at this forum. That help me alot.

My UW percentage is as high as 79 and low as 55.
As I mentioned I had not much time, so I studied subject by subject first and studied according to questions. like retrospective. Then I open kaplan notes again.
But I used it Q bank with time mode, tutor time mode.
My Kaplan also high as 67 % and low as 52 %. I did kaplan Q bank first before start of subject.

My last week prep was reading Kaplan along with MTB CK (mainly) and my notes. MTB CK is high yield.

And also suggest to do UW twice at least. just for reference, and thinking process.
My mistake was I didn't do twice.

I would advice that it would be great if you can able to do UW for three months.
Please read again UW explanation.
Thanks
good luck to you all.

congratulations......goodluck for cs....

so how you did first aid along with chapter by chapter with mtb and kaplan or at a strech solo read....since i found it is not very detail like mtb..but it covered all important points so i guess its for quick review in the last. and do we need to revise calculations and formulas like step 1?? Your suggestion will be useful.

Hey, that is fantastic, well done! One question, I see you received your score within three weeks, is that correct? I am asking because I took the test last week but I am not sure if there is going to be any delay in the score report.

By the way, did you receive the two digits score or you made a correlation using the three digit score?

Good luck in your CS. And don't forget to go to a party with your friends.

I read FA first, then Kaplan, last MTB. Yes, I revised calculations and formula only from Kaplan and UW when I reviewed. For Biostat, my reference is only from UW and Kaplan study mode.
