Question First rotation done, and I feel lost...

I don't know what it is about Step 2 CK, but I find the questions significantly more difficult in comparison to Step 1. When doing questions, I get most/all of the Step 1 questions correct, but feel completely lost when it comes to CK stuff. I have my pediatrics final tomorrow, and I finished the UW questions with a high 50s average, and got an 18 on NBME 1.

I'm using:

NBME exams

Any suggestions? Does it get easier and better as time progresses or what? I did fine on Step 1, but feel that Step 2 is going to be quite a challenge for me.

CK looks challenging initially but with time you will get better and better. Your rotations will really help.
