Thanks for the video Laura! I have a few questions for you: based on your exam experience what would you recommend reading from First aid-step 1? How was the distribution by subjects in your exam? Was it mostly IM? Was it similar to UW/NBMEs or UWSA? My exam is next weekend and I'm getting really nervous!!

Most of the questions are from IM, and there alot of pictures on which u make diagnosis. so be ready for tht . the exam is 60% like UW and NBME ,other 40% u know the diagnosis but u dont know the answer means confused in picking up one option.

My exam is next week as well, I am def on the freak out side as well, I have done everything I could to prepare but I feel like no matter what I'll be nervous until I see what I'm actually dealing with. I guess no matter what no matter how much you study there is just gonna be stuff we don't know. Hopefully we get some good luck cause I feel like that plays into these tests a bit as well. You will do great!!!

FA I recommend micro, biostats, psych and pharm. It was a lot of IM.... Then peds and ob/gyn. Very little biostats, surg and psych. It is a lot like UW but the options at the end are trickier than UW. I'm going to make a video about it soon

Hi Laura,

Thanks for posting this video. I took my exam today, and your tips really helped. Especially abt 'pants with pockets'! I made sure there wasn't a single pocket!

Good luck for the results!

Hi Laura,

Such a helpful video.Thank you for your insight and support. Have another request though.Can you please put up the list of topics which are deficient in Master The Boards step 2 CK and need to be read from other books? It would be a huge help and would save a lot of time.
Best of luck for your result.
