Gave my exam today. A good bunch of questions were based on concepts directly taken from uworld. I would avoid mtb at the end and focus on uworld mistakes and tables. Good luck

exam is just a replica of USMLEWORLD. I read pathoma before the exams,that is what you should.I had made notes in my step one,and i just revised before exams.It really helps keep that aspect of your deficiency fresh and intact.

FOcus UW in last week,on failed questions and weak areas.

Very glad to be done with it. Time was obviously an issue, questions were particularly lengthy in 3 blocks and I ran out time and had to answer the last 2-3 questions randomly for 3 blocks. EKGs and heart sounds were simple. One drug ad. IM and Peds was bulk of it, as excepted. I would say easily 75-80% of the exam was based on concepts directly from UW. So if you nail UW, you are probably to nail the test.

First, Congrats. I am glad you didn't delay it!

EKG and heart sounds bring me so much anxiety . But my plan is to stick to UW ... thanks.
