Im sticking to Uworld and MTBs ONLY. I am in no position of advising anyone yet before my result but of what I've heard, these two sources are enough for almost everything. Most of the good scorers say that.

Sounds good. Doing the same subject from multiple sources really helps. All the best

Default tip of the day

easy way to differentiate TOF Vs TA : is left axis deviation with TA

if baby with microcephaly , exclude smoking as one of the causes

f.b removal via RIGID not flexible bronchoscopy, and if in esophagus, flexible endoscopy

omphalocele not gastroschesis is associated with other anomalies that require u to search for upon birth

doxycycline is contraindicated below 8, so give instead amoc or cefuroxime incase of lyme

never use hypotonic saline 0.45% in hypernatremic dehydration, or it might cause brain swelling, always use 0.9% or RL

Hi everyone!

My plan is to take Ck at the end of June or beginning of July. I have done Kaplan QBank with an average of 68% and now I have a UWorld subscription for 2 months. I have done only 13 tests (random, timed mode, 44 questions/block) and my average is 74% in the 77 percentile.

I am trying to do 2 block/day and revise the whole questions and also try to read some MTB 2 and 3 each day, but it is soo difficult.

Do you think I can manage to take my exam as I planned? Or is it too early to say? I am planning for a 250+.

Good luck everyone!

Thanks to my lousy time management I have 2 days of Uworld subscription left and 25blocks to go :-/ Plan is to solve random timed and then quickly skim the explanations of my incorrect answers.
After this I do a self assessment!

This is my second round. I cant manage more than 10 and that too without explanations. I dont have the luxury of reading explanations because I was too damn lazy to finish uworld on time. But I have my notes and I can do those later. I need random timed question practice for now.
what are you doing these days?

Kaplan Paeds is the toughest of the Kaplan LNs. and after I read it I was like WTF did I read! But its a good eye opener. But if you have june end in mind then Id say MTB and uworld covers all of paeds there is to step 2ck.

Default done today...thank God

so thank God i am done today with 100% UW, 72% cumulative and 72 percentile, but kinda sucked at the last two blocks 61% , but thank God didn't affect my cumulative performance. i think some gyna concepts screwed me up in the last two blocks

24 days to go will try to make a quick read of MTB and give an NBME at the beginning of June enshalla....kinda reserving the UWSA close to the exam date

here are few tips for today....

* steroid induced acne, doesn't have comedons in contrast to adolescent acne with open and closed comedons
* don't remove testicles from xy AIS, until puberty is complete.
* threatened abortion doesn't require hospitalization, just outpatient follow-up
* menstrual diary for 3 cycles is essential b4 starting ttt for PMS
*Metronidazole was previously thought to be a teratogen. Not anymore> safe in first trimester
* pruritis and inflammation distinguishes T.V from B.V

Default query

I had a query
on the ecfmg website while applying for an exam they say
item 5. Other Examination History and Applicant Number

Have you ever submitted an application to the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) for a Part or Step examination?
Yes

No

Note: If you previously submitted an application to NBME, you must answer "Yes" to this question, even if you submitted the application under a different name or if you did not take the exam for which you applied. If you do not answer this question accurately, this may result in a finding of irregular behavior. See Irregular Behavior in the ECFMG Information Booklet.
If you have previously submitted an application to the National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®) for a Part or Step examination, you must answer "Yes" to this question, even if you submitted the application under a different name or if you did not take the exam for which you applied.

If you answer "Yes" and you know the Identification Number issued to you, enter the Identification Number in the space provided.

If you have never previously submitted an application to NBME, you should answer "No."

If you do not answer this question accurately, this may result in a finding of irregular behavior. See Irregular Behavior in the ECFMGInformation Booklet.



Do I answer yes or no?

My first time uworld score was 65%. I was pretty bummed out. My second read score was 77%.
I dont feel very confident of my knowledge and I think Im going to score really bad :-/ on NBME 2. mainly because I didnt revise the explanations a second time which are absolutely crucial. You will do great inshAllah. Keep the faith and keep working hard. All the best for 3rd June

Why the hell would a 65 percent bum you out???? Thats a damn good score....in the end though the score of your uworld makes zero difference at all...as long as you are using it as a LEARNING TOOL.

Use assessments to gauge where exactly you are in terms of prep, not freaking uworld scores.

Yeah i didnt like nbme 2, but thats what got me in shape, I did bad on it couple months ago, havent takent another nbme yet :/

Im almost done with one go around of uworld and im only at 55 percent correct (I started uworld even before picking up MTB so my first month of uworld was putrid with scores only around 40s which kind of messed up my average)...but ive just been using it as a learning tool and learning tool only....

But to put you at some ease lol, your score is really good, check out this thread http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=723230

The good scorers are populated around the 60s Glad for your input.
You're going in the right direction if you are using it as a learning tool. Uworld scores are supposed to be crappy without doing books first and yet you have a 55 which is very very good without baseline knowledge. What do you plan to do after this go of world?
Try the MTBs if they fit into your schedule. They are really good and concise for an orientation.

By the looks of it NBME 2 will get me up and running too.

im in the same boat man.....the good thing with step 2 CS is that they dont look at the mistakes in 1 case , they make an average of all cases , and if u are above 70 % you will pass. hopefully we will both pass

Thats a sound plan. You'll get way above 230 if you keep going this way. All the best for your CS result.

Hello everybody!

My UWolrd percentage is 74% (timed, unused, score varies between 66%-84%) with 50 % done until today. My plan is to finish UWorld on 10th June and then do the wrong and marked questions one more time and take the test at the end of June.

My only problem is that I didn't even read MTB 2 and 3 once and I don't know if I will have time to read them from cover to cover at least once or twice. And I feel that the more I read and study, my percentage goes down. This is one of Murphy's rule perhaps.

I have done Kaplan QBAnk before UWolrd and took Step 1 in November 2012 (244/86).

Please give me an advice!

i just read the explanations for the wrong answers...no time to read the whole things, even the explanations, i just read the objectives unless i really forgot the concept.....

it is really tough days, u don't really have time to even check facebook but u do anyway

good luck fellas, let's keep the spirits up


@defeatthebeast: just go over the wrong answers if u don't have time....that's the fastest way

isn't 6 newer than 4? i mean if there are some concepts they wanna implement or introduce shouldn't it be in 6? or is it safer to go with 4 since most of ppl usually do it?

6 hasnt established much repute as yet. Plus people say its exactly like 1 except a few questions.
I would go for 4 because it is the most predictive of the actual exam and some people say it is also similar to the exam.
Best of luck for 17th

Default nbme pdf

Hi all,

If anyone has any nbme pdfs with answers, I would be extremely appreciative! Annoying how they scramble the question order when you take it online...

Thanks!!

Its hard to Finish Four Blocks a day ..I just tend to Finish Uworld Questions and Then Read the Explanations Fully and If I feel like I need some more Info , i tend to look at MTB.

I am also taking Pictures of explanations of Uworld Questions with my phone which I felt Tricky or If there are any Images of CT scans I need to Relook.I am gonna Review them on my Last read with MTB.

all of This takes Entire day (12+ hours). I hope this helps.

Default 3 weeks to go

okay i'm posting after a short break after going to a break down from fatigue, frustration and feeling hopeless i finally feel motivated again to fight this exam. i am in between my externship and hardly manage about 3 hrs of studying. doing my u world 2nd pass incorrect questions , a few days back i hit a real time low when i started getting even reviewed questions wrong that too after doing UW notes, and MTB again . Finally feel like getting back up and finishing this exam which I have kept postponing like forever. So all you people who feel like you can't fight it, wake up, buck up yourselves and get start again and get done with it .. Good Luck let kick some A@$
