even my UW graph is bumpy...... but at the end i'm satisfied wiht my performance....

do u mean the 2nd half of kaplan surgery notes???? i would definitely review that part again since i feel Mtb's are deficient in surgery.


USMLE is all about perfect timing my friend...

USMLE world would cover almost 100% of the things mentioned in Kaplan surgery. I think UW is enough.

.. pushed my exam to end of jan.. was sticking to just MTB2 but now starting feeling that reading MTB3 as well might be necessary..

Also want to add that Im able to answer cardio questions a lot better after reading through the ACLS workbook.. If anyone is having trouble with basic ECG readings and their immediate management I would highly recommend reading the ACLS workbook once.. it covers all imp ECGs , drugs and Management.

Its the American Heart Association Student workbook for Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support- its 50 pages and has the standard guidlines followed during an emergency.. easy reading... I find that for most questions on Step 2 CK the right choice on what should be done first/ next in a Cardiac emergency is the national standard (based on 2010 guidelines)

Hmmm...not yet planned on my revision

Since this is the last month of my prep.revision of Uworld notes, MTB's and few topics from kaplan CK notes & FA step1 would be better way to proceed.

How about you...????

i started my final revision today ..

took free 150 yesterday

1 block ...71 %
2 block ...78%
3 block ...83 %
4 block (it had 5 qs only ..audio visual stuff )...5/5 =100 % .....so i think avg. would be around 77


just lil bit disappointed ...because i have been seeing lots of 80's and 90's in free 150 in this forum ..
but i am not giving up right now ...planning to do some serious revision x 2 weeks and then i will take UWSA:sorry:
