Warning! WARNING: DO NBME Form 2!!

Hi guys, I am an IMG that took the CK about 3 days ago. I reviewed:
UW qBank 60%
Kaplan qBank 61%
NBME #2: 380 (2 months before),
NBME 4 500 (1 month before),
UWSA 580 (3 weeks before),
NBME 3 470 (1 week before).

And despite my problems with the language I felt confident for the exam, because I passed Step 1 and CS at the 1st attempt. I passed all the NBMEs and UWSA... no nervous for the exam... but it was an unexpected experience... The 1st block was a terrible "welcome", and I though it would improve with just relaxing. Everytime I finished a block I went to the mirror in the restroom, washing my face and encouraging myself... but across the test I realized the show would not change pretty much... and I was right... I kept guessing most the time, highly pressured with time, and very upset, like the boxer that trains hard for a fight and it results in a disappointed performance. Neither UW nor Kaplan were useful for a so difficult exam... Even my easy-passing scores on NBME 3-4 were not accurate. THE ONLY MOMENT DURING MY PREPARATION WHEN I FELT THE SAME FEELING THAT THE REAL EXAM WAS THE NBME 2. I noticed it was pretty hard, but it was the most accurate indicator. I have no idea what my score will be, but anyway Step 2 CK is an experience that I wouldn't be pleased to repeat. So believe me: Work hard and whatever you feel taking NBME #2, that how you'll feel on the real day!:sorry:
