Arrow Do more peds and psych questions

Did you finish the USMLEWorld bank?
Did you do Kaplan Qbank?
Did you read Conrad Fischer's Ethics Book?

The best way is to do more and more peds and psych questions (don't do random, do only peds and psych). At this critical time I don't advise to read any more books except for Conrad Fischer's Ethics book, this book you can finish in one day and it will seriously increase your ethical questions score (which is why your psych is probably low).

220 is not a bad score by the way.

Wishing you a great exam score

I am facing the same problem.
I always tell myself "how stupid to choose that option"
I think the trick is to practice more and more

Yes so true, keeping the first answer when not sure is only a little better than 50% but to change it causes you to be wrong over 70% of the time, so the odds swing to where it wrong more often when you change it.
