Smile Step 2 CK: 260; Material used

Time taken: 2.5-3 months (Starting with 6 hrs a day to about 10-12 hrs a day)

Materials Used:
1. Kaplan lecture notes for all subjects with Videos only for Internal Medicine.
2. USMLE World - unused, random, timed
3. Master the Boards Step 2 CK - only for Internal Medicine
4. Master the BOards Step 3 - for the other subjects

I first reviewed all of Kaplan Lecture Notes in about 3-4 weeks with MTB 2 & 3. Thereafter, I did one round of USMLE World Q bank. I added notes from USMLEWorld into Kaplan Lecture Notes. I then reviewed Kaplan (all subjects), MTB 2&3 and my uncorrect questions again from USMLE World. (I would have liked to do all of USMLEWorld again, but did not have the time). I spent the last 3 days skimming through Kaplan focussing on my USMLEworld annotations and MTBs.

Numbers:
Uworld Q bank (unused, random, timed): 73%
NBME 2 (4 weeks before): 235
NBME 4 (2 weeks before): 248
UW Self Assessment (1 week before): 261
Actual score: 260

Good luck to all

Warning! Low Score in UWSA

Hi,

Congrates on your score. I have read and revised both MTBs, did Uworld twice. Took self assessment and got 223.

Need to know how to proceed as I still have time to improve it but I need to know the way. Re-reading the same thing isnt working.

Thanks.
