Group talk July-August 2013 Step 2 CK exam takers

Hi everyone!!!
I thought of starting this thread for everyone who is taking the exam in july or August so that we can keep each other motivated and get through this exam.

I will be sharing daily my progress.
Today i finished cardio from UW and did not do great,it was like i was missing some tiny bit of information and getting the questions wrong.
I am done with 39% of UW and my average score is 68% till now,(cardio i scored avg of 57% and in one of the tests my score was 45%)

Plan for today is revise cardio from MTB again go over UW notes and if i have time i will start Respi.
Good Luck everyone!!!

Keep posting

Hello everybody!

I just finished UWorld with 75% score, timed, unused, mixed questions. My plan is to take CK around 10-15th July. I am trying to read MTB 2 and 3 and also some blocks of UW that I didn't check. Hope I will take an assesment next week and see where I stand.

I am also doing an observership and it is quite exhausting to study after 8 hours spent in the hospital. But there is no other way.

Good luck everybody!

you should not even worry about your score on uworld. Look at uworld as a learning tool. Use assessment tests to guide you and show you your strengths and your weaknesses.

Just 20% of Uworld done and the cumulative score is a horrible 63%. I hope i can get it up to 70 by the end. . How many hours are each of you able to put in per day ?

I had my date for mid July but after doing NBME 2 yesterday with a 2 digit score of 223 I realized that since they are changing the passing score to 203 starting July 1st I'm only 20 points above passing score wich is not good at all.
Can someone tell me the process of rescheduling the test. ???? Do I have to cancel and schedule again??? Or just reeschedule????
Freaking out here friends

Your exam is 1 month away dont change your date,take another assessment test in 10days and see wher you are
if you change the date you will be lax and instead of increasing your score you might drop,so think before you take anystep

You did a great job and your score in UW is reassuring

Haha im trying to finish my second round of uworld within 16-22 days, so about 88-110 questions per day with review

My strategy for the next 1.5 months is pretty much questions, mtb 2,3 review. kaplan qcards, and reviewing the kaplan IM board book. basically that should cover everything i think. Just reading MTB for the first time infact as we speak lol. MTB is a pretty nice book and easy to read and really enjoying it. One way im making my mtb books better "more interesting" is adding annotation notes from the uworld to the mtb. So when i review it, i can see my notes and reread them again.

Repetition makes the grades go up up up :P

Started another read of MTB. Tried to reset Uworld for my second round, but just found that you can't do that unless you have subscribed for 6 months or more, so annoyed!

finished my 2 blocks! 73 and 75% Not too bad for random timed. But one thing im always seeming to have a problem with is electrolytes and PH/Pco2/o2 problems. I just seem to not understand or get this topic anymore! I completely understood it in step 1 but its lost now!

Any advice you guys have that can help with learning this subject! would be hugely helpful if we discuss all the types of acidosis and alkalosis and how compensation works!

Any advice you guys have that can help with learning this subject! would be hugely helpful if we discuss all the types of acidosis and alkalosis and how compensation works!
Look up the concepts behind this again from step 1 and then just google electrolyte imbalance questions and try them
Hopefully you will do fine after revising the concepts
73%-75% is not bad at all
you will improve in the next blocks

I have 3 weeks for exam need a 240 + score. Any suggestions how to proceed from now.

Has anybody else done NBME 6??

hmm only 68 and 64% in today's block, wasnt exactly focused and rushed these blocks a little so thats my fault on my behalf. Should have done better considering this is my second time through qbank. oh well it happens. Now on to review the questions and hopefully get my obgyn done today!

Was able to reset Uworld thankfully. Starting all over again with 2-3 blocks daily and mixed questions. Finishing review of Cardio section of MTB and starting Endocrine tomorrow. Fatigue keeps kicking in and I have noticed my performance going down during that time . Sometimes get the most easiest questions wrong and just wanna kick myself for that. Just have to keep going.

Hey how did you manage to reset UW? I too have 3 months subscription of UW and would like to reset it.
when fatigue starts setting in i go out for a walk or walk for a mile on treadmill with loud hip hop music and it helps.

It happens to us all! i get some of the most ridiculous questions wrong too! Keep pushing hard! Take a break here and there and watch a good movie! get 7-8 hours of sleep as well! your brain will organize all the facts eventually after repetition!

Its complicated but here goes lol. My Previous Uworld subscription was expiring today so I renewed it yesterday for 2 more months. Then I realized I can't reset unless I buy a brand new subscription or have it for 6 months. So I went on their website to check for refund policy and emailed them. They replied back saying they can credit my account for the money or refund the money with 10% of the amount deducted. I opted for the first option and ended up buying a brand new subscription and resetting my qbank information. It was a hassle but worth it.

Thank you, that was very helpful. Yeah I maintain my sanity by working out daily for an hour. Gym is where I take my frustration out, I probably look like person gone crazy but it helps me lol.

Is anyone of you doing any other Qbank besides Uworld? I am planning on finishing Uworld one more time, not sure if it is worth it doing another question source.

i heard kaplan and usmle rx is good! usmle rx is cheaper and has a mode where you can make up 4 block and i suppose 8 block exams! When i had usmle rx for step 1, i was able to make up 4 and 7 block exams and just did them basically to build up stamina to do an 8 hour exams.

Yes, USMLE Rx is pretty good. I used it for Step 1 too. I may do that for CK once I am done with Uworld for the 2nd time. I want to make sure I have the Uworld concept memorized before I move on to another Qbank.

completely agree with you! i was thinking about doing that myself. I would do the qbank a 2nd time round, then only do the incorrect questions you have the third. then and only then move to the usmle rx or whatever afterward.

I have done 47% of Kaplan Qbank in the last 2 weeks. It is not bad at all. It offers 2 free additional simulation exams of 8 blocks each. I did simulation exam 1 yesterday and got 56% correct. Is it too bad 6 weeks before the real exam? My plan is to do 2 more weeks of Kaplan and then 4 weeks of Uw qbank. Thank you!

i would say do an nbme to see where your currently at right now! Maybe it was fatigue that maybe playing in here. What was the breakdown for each block of your exam? Did you have a major crash in one of the blocks and it brought down your score?

Dont worry about it to much, you still got 6 more weeks till real thing.

Thank you JJtheMD. Will UWSA be a good replacement for NBME? I am just trying to save some money if possible :-)

From the forums i have read, some people say its extremely accurate and was almost bang on there actual score. However some others say it overestimates there score by 10 points.

So when doing these types of exam's, i would just go with the idea of say.. this is what my range is.. The nbme's arn't 100% predictive so knowing your range of score is more important that finding out.. What is the precise score i am going to get.

Dont worry about money! When your a doc, money wont matter!

We both have exactly the same amount of time.
Mostly people who do random UW usually have done some other Q bank before UW, so they take UW as testing tool but i dont have the luxury of time and i dont do topic wise its like subject wise finish one subject and do UW except for IM
Good Luck Buddy lets nail this exam

dont worry about it! Sometimes a block comes up and we get totally owned by them! Move on and forget to the next block! Make sure to review each block tho. One hours doing the block, 2 hours review each block reading all explanations. Not just the wrong ones but the wrong and right ones.

well thats unfortunate. My exam is july 29th and i wont change it till i score at least 220 on nbme Hopefully my nbme this friday is significantly higher than my 204 three weeks ago lol! Ugh

well on the bright side.. i can always move my exam back closer to my mccee if i need to. i would assume all the results are going to go out at once kinda like what the usmle step 2 cs does.

It seems like these people are just out to sabotage us. Why would they implement these rules right around match time when they have the whole year to do that!? I can't risk pushing my exam up. I'm not even 50% ready for this exam. Jeopardize my score on the expense of applying on time? I don't know.
