Default the story so far

Let me summarise my prep so far.

I gave my step1 in march. Got result in april. 256/99.
After that i worked and was involved in research/paper publication. I intermittently used to study in b/w but not in full flow.

I started seriously preparing for my exam since september. I have done kaplan almost twice. Have finished UW. Now am just doing random questions across the forum. I am hoping to give my exam sometime next month

Thanks for making this thread!!!

Today I started seeing videos for GIT but only 5 hours of it is done. 2 hours left- will do it tomorrow.
Plan for tomorrow, first of revision of GIT and KQB for GIT.
Then- I will Start Cardiology which has 70 pages of KLN and 7 hours of video. So may be 35 pages and 3.5 hours on 12/12 and remaining on 12/13.

So lets c what i did yesterday

Just questions questions and more questions..

One thing i noted when doing them was that i was generally able to get the tough questions right.. When it came to simple ones which i thought i knew i used to get wrong.. Talk about getting cocky

Lesson to be learnt: Even if a question appears easy it demands the same amount of concentration and thinking a tough one does

I know it has been quite a while since i have posted

The fact of the matter is that there is a new group on FB called

US RESIDENCY MATCH 2013..!

The people there are much more helpful, my doubts get answered soon and its without spam

Since i spend most of my time there, i make much better use of my time

Hope to see more of you guys there soon

Adios
