Default UW Electrolytes section

Did any of you feel that the UWorld Electrolytes section questions were way too tough?

With all the Winter's formula, Corrected Ca++ levels, Osmolar gap

I had only read MTB2 for electrolytes and was like blown away by UW

I suggest you know these by heart as these are not only going to be useful for Step 2 but for Step 1 also. There is no way around these (just like Biostats) as there will be tons of questions based on these concepts for Step 1 & 2.

Have you covered that portion in UWorld CK?
What % could you answer correctly?

I though acid base concepts in Uworld Step 1 & the real exam itself were easier than these.
