Well, thanks a lot my friend. My CK journal was not a popular one, you may see there's no one interested in it . But I will try to share my experience and probably some tips if anyone is interested.

Harry my good friend, I used to think you were a very smart guy. Now I'm beginning to be believe you are just not smart but also supernatural.

Like you said, holly sh*tttttt, that is the highest USMLE score I have ever come across anywhere ever. U rock man. All you need to do now is sit back relax and interview residency program directors (yes, you will be the one conducting the interviews..... hehehe congrats man

I begin to think that I am abnormal...as you said
Man....I have no idea how I can get that score, it's 16 points higher than the highest score predicted by NBME. I think this is miracle and God plays a major role here....

I like the idea of interviewing the PD ...well, there's a long road lies ahead....but we're getting closer to our dream....

Congrats for your great step 1 score !!! I will advice you the order and you can determine how long it will take to finish each step based on your capacity :
Step 1. Kaplan lecture notes + videos
Step 2. Master The Board step 2 CK + Kaplan Qbank (subject wise !!!, timed-mode if possible)
Step 3. USMLE world (random-timed-unused questions mode), take note for new concepts or easily forgettable facts.
Step 4. Quick and final review of USMLE World notes and MTB Step 2 CK

I suggest you to take NBME 3 and NBME 4+UW Assessment Exam (back to back) after step 2 and step 3 respectively.

Good luck !!!

I never expected my score would be over 260. My best estimate was 240 so I was really surprised when I got my result. When I finished the exam, I was so tired and hardly remembered how many questions I got wrong. I think I marked around 10 questions per block.

Step 1. Kaplan lecture notes + videos
Step 2. Master The Board step 2 CK + Kaplan Qbank (subject wise !!!, timed-mode if possible)
Step 3. USMLE world (random-timed-unused questions mode), take note for new concepts or easily forgettable facts.
Step 4. Quick and final review of USMLE World notes and MTB Step 2 CK

I suggest you to take NBME 3 and NBME 4+UW Assessment Exam (back to back) after step 2 and step 3 respectively.

Good luck !!!
only ?? or with any other books

thats gr8. If u marked 10 questions per block that means around 80 in 8 blocks. and these included all u thought could be wrong and all for which u were sure were wrong. Am i right? And i heard if u get wrong around 70 questions, u barely pass. Is that correct?

Yes, that 10 questions were the one which I "might" get them wrong but who knows probably I got them all right

Honestly I dont know how many questions you should get right to pass this exam and I think no one now.

I did use other resources (handouts, supplement lecture notes) that I got during Kaplan Live Lecture but they are minor. It's unpublished resources which unfortunately I can not share it with you guys due to the regulation from Kaplan.

But as far as I remember I checked my doubtful questions. And those were about 60. And confirmed wrong ones I found out were 42. Still I think mine are so wrong that shouldn't be. Still hoping 4 better score.

I believe it was a mixed of them with more weight on classic cases. Even for a classic case, keep in mind that they might put additional information in the vignettes that might change the diagnosis. So read the whole vignettes carefully.

Yes that was how I used MTB. I only read Kaplan LN once and annotated my MTB during Kaplan Live Lectures. If you're not attending Kaplan lecture, videos will serve the similar purpose. Good luck

There is no reliable resources for that, I looked up my notes, searched in the internet, basically anything I could do to find the best answer.

I have another doubt. today i started taking uwsa and done with two blocks now i feel the questions are difficult and lengthy and no time

did the exam mimic difficult questions like you find on uwsa or comparitively easy?

am just losing hope after doing uwsa while my exam is in the end of this week
