Show Teeth Prepararion

O well i reAd kaplan LN + videos, then I read mater the boards and first aid. I used kaplan qbank qnd usmle world, once each.

USMLE world :70%
Kaplan qbank: 68 %
UWSA: 240 (1 week before the exam)
Kaplan simulated exam 2 : 75%

As an advice I can only say, pratice questiones so you can be ready. It is an Endurance test, the last threeblocks are a pain in the butrrocks.
I just want to know my score and know I am done with it.

Cool Eperience

Hey, hope it is not to late but when I was done with the exam I took a week so I could just forget about everything, wait for my result and start studying for the cs.
I took step 1 on may 30th and got 246 and a started studying for the CK in mid june. The material I used was Kaplan LN and videos, it took me 2 months to read the notes and watch the every video, then I read FA for the ck two times in about two weeks and read some material for the Mexican medical residencies exam which I took in september the 7th after that I had to take a wee off, so by mid september I started to read master the boards and started doing some usmleworld questions. in november I read first aid again and continued doing the uworld, I was getting 65% on the random, timed mode, I had to take another week off by the end of october, I felt I was doing ok and then I started reading posts about the ck getting harder and that freaked me out a bit. I started the Kaplan qbank and I woul get 55%, 57%, and scores like that so that stressed me more and I re-read the IM kaplan LN and then dedicated some time to go over my weak areas in statistics, renal, pulmonolgy, and took the uwsa on november the 23th and got 240, on the 25th did the kaplan simulated exam number 2 and got a 75% which was 264 right questions. After that I pretty much just relaxed until the 30th which is the date when I took the ck.
The day of the exam I was feeling very good after almost 6 months of preparation, had a good night of sleep, and I just wanted it to begin. The first five blocks I was feeling very confident and not tired at all. The kaplan simulated exams realy help you to stay focused. Th questions where as in every usmle exam, some easy, some medium level, some hard and some extremly hard but still I was feeling goog, after the 5th block I took my lunch break. The 6th and 7th blocks were a pain in the butt, with long questions with answear optiones where at least 3 would make sense and that kind off distracts you and makes you go to the next questiones still thinking about that last one you just answeared and that really gets you, because you loose and your concentration and that just makes you more tired. not to mention that I had 4 blocks of 45 questions each. the last block I got only 29 questiones, I had enough time but half of the questions where easy and the other half where from another world. I left the prometric center honestly not knowing how to feel, when I took step 1 I felt confident I did not know exaclty how I did but at least I felt good, after ck I just wanted to go home, rest, go out that night and hope for the best.
If I could give you an advice I would be as everyone says, practice questions to manage your time and dont let the exam get you as it got me in the last 3 blocks, go over the question look for an answear that fits and forget all about it dont let it stick into you head and follow you on the next question, that would be the worst thing that could happen and it happened to me a lot. Hope it helps. Feel free to ask questions.
Good luck everyone.
