Default New question format on step 2 ck

For those who have taken the exam, can you comment on the number of questions per block on ck?

I have read that ck will now be incorporating blocks that can vary in number of questions but no more than 40 per block. I have read people getting around 20 questions in a single block and still have the 1 hour time limit.

If you had a block with less than 40 questions...lets say around 20's then do you notice the questions being longer and more difficult or are they about the same? How much time did you have left over after finishing these shorter blocks?

The changes are taking place starting on the 9th .. No one knows what to expect. I doubt the change will mean longer questions, it should be about the same length as current exam , i doubt USMLE will change it's entire question pool for the extra 10 sec we are getting per questions . What i think might happen is you we will prob see more abstracts and drug ads per block ..
