Thumbs Up Step 2 CK Experience; Lack to time and lengthy questions

Finally, ah...what a relief! Took my ck on 27th-oct , man the exam day was so stressful, my eyes were so red when i got out and my head was spinning...trust me it was like a roller coaster ride...

The questions were so lengthy had to scroll 2 pages, there are lots of unwanted fillers (past history etc) in it which makes you think of a different diagnosis and i felt it was vague, adequate info for diagnosis was not provided and i missed 4 questions on the whole my block closed due to lack of time
At the end of every block i had just 50 seconds count down, so i just had to rush sometimes with logical thinking. main problem with the exam is lack of time and very lengthy questions.......

I am happy that i am relieved now after 8 months of prep and i hope my hard work pays...

Hope and pray that i pass...please keep me in your prayers guys

hope i will be back here to post for my friends on this forum to help them with the exam prep.

good luck !

Yes, am trying to relax and have a good time with my family since i had to isolate myself from them.

sure i will be back here with my scores to share my study experience, but i think it will make sense after i get my results.

but the study materials that i used were :

Kaplan lectures- one read.

MTB- Twice along with usmle world subject wise, un-timed mode did it twice.

Uwsa

nbme i just did a offline form.

I cannot agree more with you about such a vague depressing exam just being sad after so much of dedication and hardwork was not satisfied about the performance. i nearly cried after i left the prometric. just do not know whats going to happen. had so much of anxiety today that i ended up doing some tricks that were posted on the forum.
my scheduling permit disappered and i tried re-applying step 2 ck and it is allowing me to apply again. dead scared about it and am trying to console myself after all this and i am praying to god to let me pass this exam
