Smile Bangbong2000 CK exam experience

Hi guys .. I gave my ck on 8th nov and i just want to share my experience in case it is helpful for ones who are about to give the exam..
It took me 5mths to prepare this exam with last 2 months of intensive study.. I went thro kaplan video lecture once (very very tiring and boring sometimes) but as far as the lectures particularly i would suggest you listen epidemiology, statistics, ethics , obs and gynae.. DONOT MISS STATISTIC LECTURES, extraordinarily simplified. It took me a little more than 2 mths to finished listening to lectures when i read the text side by side. After this i went through kaplan lecture note once more.. Did kaplan qbook and first aid QnA side by side... I started my Usmleworld exactly one month before exam.. I do question initially in block of 10/20 then after 4-5days i realized i was going too slow then i started doing block of 44q in timed mode. Practising timed mode is very important. It is very difficult to do more than 120questions per day with retrograde studies in every doubts..Usmleworld is definitely an eyeopener.. One day i score well 70-75 and other day i scored 50-60 ... It was indeed a mixed feelings of confidence vs fear of failure... One week before my exam date I realized that i was not going to complete my usmleworld so i poseponed my exam by 14days ... I help me alot and it gave me time to relax a little. But somehow i still didnot have time to do 300 questions in usmleworld.. My overall score was 68%.. I did stimulation exam in usmleworld of 4 blocks 2 days before exams and score 76%. i was not sure what to expect on the exam day because some of the guys (even in this forum) who gave the test says usmleworld is easier and more simplified than the real test.
On the day of exams , i have never been soo tensed in my life and i was n time reached prometric 45mins before exams ... Had a chat with other who were also giving the exam cool me down... Make sure you take your passport, print permit and prometric exam comfirmation prior to exam.. Take food with you... I took fruit juice, 2apples and chocolate.
Exam started at 9am sharp.. I took 8 hrs to complete the exam.. By 5pm i was done.

So guys what im trying to say is... Time yourself and make sure you dont left any questions and i would suggest drug ad and study analysis always takes time and when you are faced with these questions spare it after you finished the rest of the questions in that block without any time pressure.
The exam itself is much much easier than usmleworld... Questions are very direct not like the ones in usmleworld.. You will do fine ... Dont worry.
I studied kaplan text book, qbook, first aid QnA, conrad ethics 100 cases and ofcourse usmleworld.
Im expecting a good score and i will post it :-)
