Smile Finally...Score back...228---98% on step2 :)

I finally got my score today....I was kinda shocked because i was hoping to atleast pass...but to my surprise i pulled of a 98%...Maybe i studied a month or two more than i needed to but now with this score it was more than worth it...
if anyone interested here is the bullet timeline of my study....
-from feb to april-
kaplan q bank and kaplan books
-may and june
world with crush and notes till end of july
-bought MTB late july and finished it 6 times before sept with a second review of world test....
-UWSA score at 30% of world....210
-UWSA score after 100% were 260
-took 2 nbme's...with a max score 216 on step 2..NBME"s scared me alot...because score wasnt that promising....>So make your own judgment but i would say you should definitely take it....
well any question plz let me know..>GOOD LUCK to all of you

First off thanks to this forum...When u wanna kill time its productive lol
1----its not hard to revise that many times....MTB is roughly 550 pages...SO in a week you can average about 100 which shouldnt be hard because its not that heavy...when i reviewed i went thru the book with kaplan books and wrote in notes from kaplan books on each subject because MTB is lacking...third when you do go over MTB Mark the stuff you do know by heart which should be alot so when you come around it on the second time you dont have to waste alot of time...by the 3rd revision you'll be flying thru MTB reading over essential notes instead of wasting time...honestly its not that hard considering i was hoping i would just pass but i got a sweet surprise....
2-----Kaplan qbank should be before world because it prepares you mentally for the type of questions on step 2..It helps organize your thoughts and you should use it as a training qbank for world....you should be more than ready with sufficient time by the time you get to Uworld...As always uworld is GOLD>..
3---to be honest i didnt have much time on practicing with the abstracts so whenever i got those questions i left it towards the end of the block...because they are huge and you dont wanna waste time on them when you can gain points in other places....but if you know your stats from step1 you should be more than fine...
