Experiences Aspdoc1 CK exam experience

Hi all… how u doing?

I took my exam yesterday and trust me its very much doable… This forum helped me a lot with CK so its time for me to do my bit… I wanna share my experience to alleviate some anxiety about the recent change of patterns and other notions…

Prep time: 2 days short of 4 months

Materials : UWv(best and most important tool of my prep)+ MTB 2&3 + FA for step 1 only for biostats and ethics..

Now abt d exam:-
Length of Q: comparable to UW… only a few including drug ads Q were lengthy

Difficulty level: comparable to UW.. if u were fine while doing ur NBME and UWSA u will do well in exam.. of course expect few Q which u wont hv a clue about , like in all exams..

NO of Q/block: 42-44
Time: enough to complete the block: if u didn’t hv problem with time management during ur NBME and UWSA then u will do fine in exam.. I had 8-10 mins at d end of each block to revise my marked Q..

Distribution: IM>paed>gyn>surgery>psychi>prev med>ob>derma

Drug ads: at least which I got were nothing like UW and I had 5 drug ad wid 3 Q each..

Take with u chocolates and lot of energy drinks cuz u ll need all d energy in d world to sit for 9 hrs… and also self confidence and cool temperament..

My whole idea to share my experience is to calm down other ppl like me who dunno wat to expect after recent posts like resources useless etc.. majority of d concepts are in UW and MTBs.. know them well and u r gud to go..

so gud luck to all.. do well!!

NBME 4 : 244 (1 month before exam)
NBME 6 : 244 (1 week before exam)
UWSA : 247(1 week before exam)
I found UWSA more challenging than NBME.. I made a lot of silly mistakes in it.. I found their answer choices confusing cuz of wordings but in real exam it wasn't like dat..
