According to my score, I found the test hard. I studied everything that was out there. But either my luck sucked or that I didn't study what I had to. I don't even know where I could have gone wrong. I am not the smartest person taking the exam but I worked d@mn hard for this exam.
So yes, CK is hard. Expect it to be.

the new CK does not check your real knowledge but your reading capacity, it checks how fast can you read english.
why so difficult to manage the time? even if there were only 36 q in my last block(and no drug add and abstract), but still i was short of time.
+ very difficult to choose the answer between the last filtered 2 options,

i have CS in this week but still hav hangover, and i think add1 also experiences it...

I don't really get this...

I'm currently preparing for CK, and viewed many test takers opinion on this exam.....In what way is it hard???? plz someone elucidate on this.....very apprehensive on what my exam would turn out to be.......

can u guys give us a sense of what hardships u faced by giving an example of any q u remember???? what was the avg length of questions u faced?

a member above mentioned that no q bank can prepare u for the exam???? are they gonna test us on concepts in kaplan n mtb's or not..??? does studying these books prepare us with the concepts needed to crack the lengthy questions in real exam...???

lastly is the exam all about testing your reading capabilities with known concepts or about testing concepts which no one has encountered or has not been given in the regular stuff we bank on(kln, mtb's n UW) ?

need an honest reply to my question......will benefit all of us who are currently preparing for the worst

I can not say actually what you have to read, the main problem was so confusing in 2 options(both are sooooooooo likely). you can check my experience which my help you a little bit- Step 2 CK experience- contra to my assumption.
