Arrow Exam experience --- Sep 4th !

Exam is tough and challenging but doable ... so first move ahead with confidence that u can do it. I am an average med student , so u guys can easily do it !

Coming to the exam part I felt it was a replica of the Fred practice material ! sort of similar questions , of course some were way too much for me (which is not the case in the practice material which was easy I must say!), just couldn't even come up to 2 answers for some questions on the real exam , but rest all were like
" hmmm ... I know this! actually I have done a similar question in Uworld , ok wait I can do it , but I need time to dissect and get to the answer ! "

And thats the key here in CK , u just cannot spend time pondering on the concept , it should come as a reflex , and for those of u who can do this , u can nail this exam !

So my advice ... practice timed mode questions , questions n questions ! Waste of reading the same old books and theory part !

------------------------------------

My step 1 was 228 ... I hope I get a decent score on CK too ! But my gut feeling says , I messed up too many questions because of lack of time ... so fingers crossed ! Will update my scores on 26th ! All the best and thanks for ur support !
