Smile kalsabek step 2 ck experience

Hey everyone first I would like to thank everyone here on this forum for my journey through steps 1 n 2!

I took my exam last week in Chicago suburbs area.
I had 8 blocks of 44-46 qs but the last block was 28 which surprised me!!!

I felt the exam was way harder and longer than the nbmes and the free 150 n more similar to the UWORLD. In UWORLD I used to finish in 40 min but in the exam I finished max 10 b4 end of time and block 8 I finished right at the last second.

Most of the qs were IM, I felt some were tough and vague, then peads n OBGYN which were easy n simple in my opinion then psych which I found vague especially the adolescent qs! Between anorexia and ADHD topics...know them to the very detail pls!

I got 2 drug ads....very easy. I got 2 or 3 abstracts those were annoying tbh

I'll write about my studying after I get my results next month

Yes I am sure and I was very surprised when I saw that...it's unfair that in some blocks I barely had time n in this block I had 28 qs only
