By the way, is there anyone in this thread who also used Kaplan qbank? K06100, drsmart, stepdoc1, DocSikorski? Do you guys think it helped you with answering UW or with your UW performance?

I'm planning to finish kaplan qbank but I guess let's just say I'm looking for a little encouragement... Going through all these questions is tough. lol!!

@callmerocky: Nope, I haven't started with UW. I started kaplan qbank after my first read of KLN. Not really the way I'd recommend it. It's more of personal preference. Just wanted to get the 1st reading done and over with.

came across this precious piece - a guy from sdn with nickname bluntdissector made an analysis of 100 people who reported their UW performance and actual step 2 scores here:

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/2...step2small.png

It is very promising,
looks like drsmart is shooting for 260 lol

Thank you!! This is very helpful. Now I know I don't have to stress myself too much about getting a good UW score. A CK score of 230 is around 57% (UW). That's good news! Yay!!

This thread is really scary for CK forum newbies. Reminds me of that step 1 forum thread "dont be fooled FA is not enough." That thread scared the **** outta me. I see most of you are scoring in 50's.. Is this after reading KLN and MTB?

I read both MTB and KLN sometimes, not done yet...

btw, feels so good to be back in the game and see most of my USMLE friends here again.

We talk, we flood, we joke - we bang the skulls of USMLE!

In that case there is room for improvement. You should end up over 65

UW Done -80%

Kaplan Qbank was helpful for Usmle world Qs especially the gimmies that I get wrong sometimes.

I started off with 58%

yeah, sometimes you see questions that are just out this world...
did you notice how step 2 puts syndrome names in the answer choices?
despite well known stuff like Parkinsons and Alzheimers they sometimes put crazy stuff like Riley-Day or whatever...
was not the case with step 1...

@Hitman: Thanks! Your step 1 was way high. I'm sure you'll do great with Step 2 too! lol!

@Step_enhancer: Thankee for answering my question about kaplan qbank, bud. I'm glad to know my effort in this qbank will bear fruit.

@DocSikorski: Yep! I'm glad to see friends here too. For the past few weeks, I kept visiting the forum every 10 minutes and there's barely any activity. I missed everyone. There were no threads to flood... until you made this one. lol!!

I didn't use Kaplan Q bank due to my limited time for studying: I work full time so I had to prioritize UW along with reading some of KLN books+MTB2 (IM)+MTB3 (all other subjects).

All said uworld is the best tool for preparation.And we will going to have a long future with it ,like in step 3 ,Internal medicine board exam(if u take IM in residency)

around 20 % of the Question will be out of reach of everyone I guess ,may be question writer want to tell us ,who's the boss ? haha

There's something i wanna know.. Everybody says MTB-2 for IM and MTB-3 for everything else. I was wondering why not MTB-3 for all :/
Is the IM content of MTB-3 not good??

step 1 forum here is just nuts, it can probably compete with facebook by the number of hits or something!

I guess not everybody makes it in here...

but here we are!

Don't worry too much. The most important is to make sure that you've learned from your mistakes!! Most of the time I've learned more from questions that I missed! BUT if you're going to start the UW again now do it TIMED, all subjects, random...Keep going!

Shalom

They recently revised their % average scores and based on my estimate they have reduced it by 10% (since I have done it before & after the revision).
So if you are getting 60% now it is equal to about 70% previously.

Your cumulative score(blue line) is below the average score(black line), thats why ur percentile is below 50%
if you increase only 5%, your percentile will go up by at least 20 points

I am redoing my incorrect Qs ,so the percentages have increased to 63 % which correlates to 40th percentile .
Looks like 3% score increases percentile by 10 in this zone

took me around 3 weeks, the awesome thing is that for this step contrary to step 1 I already graduated, and im studying at least 8 to 12 hours a day, so i can cover a lot of information and do a lot of questions that I couldnt do in step 1.

Here is the screenshot of my uworld first pass score Because im gonna start over so this will change.. I CANT RESET SCORE BECAUSE I ONLY BOUGHT IT FOR 2 MONTHS FUC.K!

Looks I was in the 77th percentile XD!

I suck at the OBGYN!

I hate OBGYN!!!

and it hates me in return.
How this can be so boring an uninteresting?
I drag myself to read it, I drag myself to learn it!

I remember nearly passing out and puking all over the place when I saw delivery during my med school!

Its gross its disgusting!

Reading questions about fishy-smelling vaginas makes me wanna vomit!


miserable...

Online.
Easy and straight forward... I did 41 mistake though... (41 from 184 - 77% correct)

So 77% correct = 197 which is just to pass...

So done with the first round of UW. Did all tutor subjectwise with a cummulative now to be 61%.

I started with low 50ies and very very slowly moved to 61%.

What I learned and my advice to you:
MTB is not enough to mess with UW, thats why I only scored 50-55 in the first half of my UW journey.

What really worked - Kaplan notes, I used them, read thoroughly and started scoring 70-75 in the other half.

Now going to do 2nd round with timed random.

Going to skew the so-called "UW-average" even further...

Got new subscription - startin all new:

First two blocks, timed, random - 75 and 79%

Haha - raised bar from 19% to 20% correct for the question id: 2289 [394877] - this is how it goes, so do not be mad if you get lame score for the first run of UW.

Rock on!

So i guess it's a good idea that im not diving into UW right away.

I mean, doing a first read of MTB along with kaplans is a good idea before starting out with UW, right?

Alot of people said kaplans were a waste of time becuase my step 1 is fresh, but i felt that i wanted to start right with no shortcuts.

The truth is that ur prep doesnt start until u start uworld, so I'd suggest u to go through kaplan as fast as possible & start uworld

Just a few cents on new passing score.
189 to 196?

- I think its a great idea.
Do you guys know, is there any nobel prize for "great ideas in testing"?

I'd actually like to be also shocked by a taser every 15 minutes on a testing center.
Do we still get chairs to sit at prometrics? - I think they are too much of a comfort!

189 to 196? - why not to raise it straight to 250?!?!?!?!?
That would be so good!!!

Done with uworld second time, blocks comprised of only incorrect Questions and ended with 78% ,they were around 800 Questions .
I feel this was main part of my prep
These blocks had average scores of 48-54%

Anyone is doing RX?

I am constantly one-two points better than their pre-set average, but just can't break "70-point-barrier"

some questions are ridiculous

Dig, dig... I'm running with KLN + MTB 2 + MTB 3. Two times of that and then I'm jumping into UW. Not sure about KLN Qbank... I'll do the QBook though (Any way... I got it for free).

P.S.
Let's kill this m@!$@...

I'm currently reading my Kaplan qbank notes with MTB... and it's taking me forever. lol! My original plan was 2 weeks. Looks like it's going to take me 3-4 weeks.

Just started after studying Kaplans ...

3 blocks ... 77%, 79%, 79% ... it takes ages to read the explanations and study new info ...

Guys I started to suspect that Kaplan IM is a waste of time ... all IM questions have nothing to do with Kaplan ...

Will UW cover all the info needed for the exam, in other words, should I return for Kaplans or should I stick to UW ?

Did they give you a three digit score as well? I'm wondering what your score would be with 71% correct questions...

I wonder what diagnostic tests for step 2 CK give you 3-digit estimation? NBME does... UWSA?

I know that RX simulation exams do not
apparently Kaplan also does not...
