Default Has CMS been updated with new Questions recently?

Hey guys,so I did all the Q's in the Clinical Mastery Series(CMS) back in July 2015,and the nbme website now says there are "new" forms that have been updated on December 4th 2015.

I plan to give Step2 CK in Jan 2016 (ive delayed it enough already),so if theres anyone out there that can share some info on whether the new updated version of CMS is a must do,or any other info about it,would be very helpful.

Thanks,good luck to everyone.

Okay never mind,I emailed the nbme website and just got a reply that basically says that the Questions and answers didnt change but only the scoring equivalencies changed.

can you please tell what that means?
does it mean that they corrected it so that it reflects real exam scores more accurately?

thanks

Yeah I assume that's what they've done.

They also said in the email that CMS has no correlation to USMLE step 2 ck and that the changes in CMS were to reflect new scoring tables for NBME Clinical Science Subject Exams(I think that means for AMG's who take shelf exams....not sure)

Either way,CMS should be used to learn rather than test ourselves so their scoring equivalencies shouldn't matter.
