Default My experience

Will go about it briefly.

Study time 7-8 months (first 3 months did at a very slow pace)

Used kaplan LN (no videos) x 2. Used MTB 2 (complete) and MTB 3 (excluding internal medicine portion) x 3-4. Uworld twice with first time 72%. NBME 7 1 week before 237 and UWSA 259 1 week before.

Fred 150 5 days before 88%.

I don't remember much about the exam honestly. Felt like I just sat through and completed it and couldn't remember much after it. Questions were difficult i guess but not out ov the world.

Am disappointed because i scored less than step 1 and am hoping that doesn't make my application look bad. But thanks to God its over.

Step 1 : 249
Step 2 : 245
