Default Any advice to score 270 on step 2 ck?

Hi,

I scored 250+ on step 1 and want to bump up my score in step 2 to 270. I have read the Kaplans once, and also MTB 2 and the non-IM part of MTB 3 once. I want to be done with the exam in 1-1.5 month, so I am planning to do the Uworld once and go over my mistakes, do the NBMEs and secrets. Do you guys think that would give me a fair chance to get my target score or should I also be doing something else?

Any help would be appreciated. Please respond soon as I'm a little short on time :P Thanks!

Default 270

Saying I want a 270 on my boards is something I should start saying more often.

I want a 270 on my boards and I am only getting 40pct of my Qs right on UWORLD.

Love your mindset and please tell me how you stay hungry!

Peace!

Haha, I guess it's my type A personality. I always aim high even though it doesn't always work out as planned but I believe if I aimed for a 250 I might end up with a 230, but if I aim for a 270 I have a better shot at scoring high even if I might not reach my goal. You know as the saying goes shoot for the moon..

You got a great attitude!

I believe the best way to go about achieving this is doing uworld and secondary qbank such RX.

Good luck!
