Experiences drsrb Step 2 CK Experience

I gave my ck exam on the 20th nov..
Studied for about 5.5 months...
used mtb2+3 and kaplan notes..
my cumulative performance
kaplan q bank. 67 %
uworld 77%
nbme4 235
nbme 6 265
uwsa 253
the exam was doable..all those saying the qs are lengthy and u cant finish it in time..that's not the case..i used to have around 10-15 mins after each block[provided i am a fast reader]
i had qs ranging from 41 to 44 in each block..the ones with drug ads had 42 n d one with abstract had 41 and without these had 44...
around 30-40% were direct
30%needed some thinking but were doable..
20%were difficult
and last 10% had me spinning in my chair like dafuq..abstract ones..i seriously felt like picking the monitor up n smashing it..
i don't know if i even got one right in those..
got like 4 murmurs..
a couple of ecg's..nothing you havent seen in uworld
marked around 6-7 qs in each block..
this has been said idk how many times but uworld is ur ultimate source for this exam...focus on that and u can nail this beast..
rest nothing was like u cant do...need to clear up ur basics..coz in the end it was always down to 2 options..having a little bit of clinical experience on ur side helps...
finally praying and waiting for the result which hopefully will come out in 3 weeks...
all the best everyone!!

Good like enjoy your life now. Been thinking about how your exam went and was waiting for post. That's great another person saying that qs are not our of blue and of some unbelievable lenght,
Again could u compare length with uworld qs. And kaplan if you have done it.
Good luck fast reader

@z.yakai.. u should definately do u world twice...u will learn so much new info and it will really help build ur concepts or consolidate them further...
@tamta..yea qs are not completely out of the blue...length was almost same as uworld...couple of qs were lengthy where a lot of info was given which you didn't really need to know to answer the question...
fast reader..not as fast as eminem tho...
@dr_shyambitla...acc to me you should definitely read kaplan notes once....rest qbank is also a good source to learn the info..it was bcoz of the qbank i remembered most of the kaplan notes...

see if you think you are done with uworld..like u have retained all the necessary info from uworld..go ahead and do kaplan qbank...doing qs cant hurt noone..but there are a lot of unnecessary qs on that..low yield concepts u dont need to know...so even if u get a low score on that...dont let it affect you..
or if ur just looking to do extra qs..there is this app on android and iphone...called prognosis...it is available for cvs,respi,std's,diabetes...all free..they have couple of cases lined up in each..i did like most of dem in the last few days...it was good practice..

I would really love to be at your place done with exam and waiting for score but its the hardest period, so i can't envy you, when you are so disoriented from reality until you see the report hope for the best i am writing nbme 4 tomorrow. If i score >230 i will give exam by end december.
What have you done in last 2-3 weeks: i am planning to finish last blocks of uworld until i am left 4 blocks, then write second nbme, along with doing marked and incorrect ones review.+ mtbs.

Really am afraid of abstracts any idea how can i find somewhere and practice on them

sounds like a plan!!
during the last three weeks i went over uworld[all of it] and covered mtb along with the notes i had made throughout my prep..didnt do anything before the exam...saw a couple of shows and a light comedy..
yea the abstracts were something that left me traumatized during the exam
i tried to find some source during prep but cudnt find anything relevant..there are links here n there on this forum but nothing credible..
only ones i saw in my prep were from uworld or the free 150..
they are not even in kaplan q bank..

I did the qbank quite early in my prep..so really dont remember...I did it subject wise..what it helped me with was retaining kaplan notes.. like the q which test non ige mediated t-1 allergic reaction..i remember irrelevant stuff like this bcoz of kln qbank..
cardio and surgery was something i remember it helped me a lot in..
i wud still say focus on uworld..its the magic key to this exam!!

Congras couple of questions.

1) i am writing step 2 CK before 1. Done with all kaplan notes and MTB. How much step 1 material is tested ? I am aware of behavior sciences so i will cover that. Is uworld enough or do i need to review other step 1 material ? esp pharma and pathology?

2) do you remember how was pediatrics ? like did they heavily test on weird syndromes ? and psych is my weak area. Any suggestions?

3) I am thinking of subscribing to Kaplan step 2 High yield videos. Should i do that or kaplan qbank? Any experience with usmle rx?

4) like tamta asked. What did they ask from abstract questions were there biostats questions or what was the main focus ?

Thanks and best of luck

@neuralcrest...i have no idea of nbme 2 correlation..
@doc10487..see from step 1 a lil bit of biochem micro is tested along with side effects of drugs or their mech of action..these are most likely covered in uworld and notes..but having step1 behind u helps with these..like new born syndromes..pku,homocystinuria,alkaptonuria and stuff like that...various immunodef syndromes and lysosomal storage diseases etc etc..
i have no clue about kaplan hy videos..all i know is that these are 20 cases taught by Dr.Fischer..
similarly no clue about rx for step 2..
kaplan qbank helped me with my prep in early stages..so if u r a month or two into ur prep u shud go for it..but my main focus was on uworld.
peds was ok..know when to give reassurance and when to intervene..there was nothing out of ordinary or if there was maybe i didnt notice coz there are always certain WTF qs that fly over u..
psych was ok..i have read certain experiences which say u get the weirdest qs in psyh..i studied it from both mtb2 n 3..also went over first aid from step 1 for psych and u world to top it all off!!
n seriously i tried a lot to get a source for abstract n drug ads qs...cudnt find any..
other than these there were certain biostats qs..were pretty straightforward..
@tamta...nbme 4 was like 20 days bfr exam..
nbme 6 was 10 days bfr...uwsa was 8 days bfr exam!!

i dont really remember how much of em was there..i covered em from kaplan first and whatever i thot was necessary and missing from mtbs i copied it there n studied from mtb after that.
surgery was ok..i studied kaplan surgery book..i liked dere q n a pattern and also studied it from mtb 3..so in the end it was both kln as well as mtb 3.
i wud lay my main focus on uworld..kaplan had a lot of irrelevant info...but it did help me prepare for the lengthy ones and cardio i liked d cardio on kaplan but again uworld-eye of d tiger!!
