So how are you finding this combination? I was wondering to do UW with MTB-CK (for IM only). That's all. At the end, I am planning to do Kaplan qbank..What do you think ?

I know this post is old, but I just came across it because I was having the same question. So, is it doable? Step Taker or Sabio? Anyone?

Thanks.

No I don't guess so

Read my experience with MTB 2 to know what I'm talking about

Unhappy Help!

I know that there are people that say that it's not enough, but the thing is that I would like to take CK in August to be in time for September, so I have to do it as fast as I can, but the best I can. I've read other posts where people say that MTB and UW is enough...

And dr-ahmed, I read your entire post, it was very good, but time is a thing I don't have, so I'm at the verge of freaking out! I can't wait a whole year for next September's match!!

I'm currently reading Kaplan lectures (IM now; I've read Surgery and OB/GYN) along with MTB. Should I integrate the Qbanks now?

Any inputs?

I will give you an advice here, one of the experts in this field told to me.

Don't run after the match ,, meaning don't rush yourself to catch the match as this could harm your scores. The match comes every year, but the exam is a one time shot. Once you score bad, there's no way back.

The point of starting a Qbank is dependent on your background knowledge. If you feel confident about it now, okay go and give it a trial with the Qbanks. If you score well there, this is well and good. If not I propose that you go back to your lecture notes even if that's going to consume time cause that means you aren't ready yet. Again don't let the match deceive you and reevaluate the situation very well.

Good luck
