Default My experience

Got my results yesterday 253/85. Never posted my experience before, this will be the first time.

Background:
.Finished med school in 2003 in Brazil, already been through 2 residencies, but decided to marry an american, and move to the states
.Step 1 : 226/97, never focused enough, took me 6 months of very slow studies and 3 months of hard studies
.Step 2 CS: pass - 3 weeks of studying "on my husband"

Those I acomplished by july 2011, then came back to BR to have a big wedding in September, and didn't study anything until 22 october 2011(family came with me to the states for A MONTH after the wedding in Brazil)

Whatever, I studied from 23 oct through december 22 for CK, when I took the exam.

.First month Kaplan videos/lecture notes of the subjects i knew less and exercises from Uworld (videos and books 60% of the time)- i would update my calendar of study with my performance on the USMLE world. Like, peds was my worse subject since the beggining, so i antecipated the videos, and never got to watch the OBGYN or surgery ones)

Also bought the book USMLE secrets, but only read 20%

I DID ALL THE EXERCISES ON THE USMLE WORLD, REVIEWED CAREFULLY ALL OF THEM, MARKED THE ONES I DID WRONG, BUT MORE THAN 50% OF THE PEOPLE MARKED RIGHT, AND REVIEWED THE MARKED ONES 2 DAYS BEFORE THE TEST

Second month- Uworld 80-90% of my hours of study and the rest with videos. almost no more books

Life overall: Study 6-8 hours/day 5 days/week in the beggining, increasing to 9-11 h/day 7 days/week in the end. Always sleep at least 8 hours/night, and go to the gym at least 4 days/week for at least 40 min. Eat well, don`t panic, and do UWORLD

My advice:
.If you have three months or more, start with Kaplan videos/LN, but always do UWORLD exercises since the beggining, at least 44 q/day. Read and watch all the videos. You dont need other books, but having one review book for the last weeks is a good idea. Forget Kaplan QBank, world is more than enough.

. If you have less than 3 months, do as many video as lecture notes you can in the beggining, but 4-6 weeks before the test date, do ONLY or 90% of your time UWORLD. Sometimes you dont even know the diagnosis, but you know how to answer the question because you get used to them.

I did 1 NBME 4 days before the test, got 550, i think was 244 and the SA from Uworld 252 i think, the day before.

ONe sentence: Don`t panic, balanced life (food, sleep, exercise), and UWORLD

I hope it helped!!!
