Default Step 2 ck advice

HI My friend failed step 2 ck twice. She had the plan to apply this year. Now she is freaked out. She passed the step 1 and cs 1st attempt but stuccoed in ck.

I passed my own exam by studying UW and MTB. She did the same but failed the attempts, I do not know how to help her!!
Do you have any advice for the study plan? She wants to do it fast as she still have the fresh memory of the sources.

I failed 1st time last year too and passed on second with a 230. I didn't use MTB or Kaplan, just Uworld and Anki. There are many Anki decks on reddit medical school, it's what most U.S. med students used. I'm sure had I used MTB and Kaplan with Uworld and Anki, I would have gotten 240+.

I did quizlet Uworld flashcards the week before CK and they were a HUGE help as many concepts were reviewed.

They key with CK is to constantly review. All the time. The exam is a beast and a half, so you need to know your **** cold. All the gimmes you must get right. Tell her to take her time on the third try and not give CK unless she's getting at least 220s on practice exams.
