Books:
I used MTB2 for IM and psych, MTB 2 and 3 for peads, gyob and surgery.
I did NOT use kaplan.

Total Prep: well would say around 3 months of "actual studying" but I did waste a lot of time before that.

Assessments:
NBME 4 offline .. predicted about 250
UWSA .. 263
I dont think there is any assessment that predicts your score accurately for CK.

Exam: was totally crazy! I finished the blocks just in time .. with about 10-15 seconds to spare ..

There was a lot of biostats and psych and derma .... a lot of derma pictures which I had no clues about.

Drug ad was kind of OK .. but the abstract was crazy ... i just randomly picked an answer!

Everything was vague. There were a lot of terms they used I had never heard before. |I was not even sure of 20% of the questions .. was all guesswork .. but of course not wild guesses. hehe

Hey that's a really good score. With that score, I dont think the score factor will stop you from entering any program. Congratulations

Default Step 2 Ck result

234. Got it this morning

Month and a half of prepping, just with USMLEworld
NBME 4 (with 50% of USMLEworld completed) = 214
UWSA (with 100% of USMLEworld completed) = 247

Me too, when I left the test I was like "what the hell just happened??". I didn't turn out as bad. I wished I had scored like the self-assessment, but I'm happy with the score. Best wishes to all

Yeah its hard to remember all the details. I read 3 times. I finished Uworld once and did a second round .. bt was left with 700 questions in the end.

Don't worry, its impossible to memorize MTB .. keep doing uworld you will get the basic ideas. In the exam, its more of situational questions rather than what you remember from MTB. Good luck!
