Default My Studying Journal for CK

Planning to take the exam on March.

Read KLN once, but only revised Int.Med.

then did 1st read of MTB 2 Int.Med, and MTB 3 in surgery, ped, and ob&gyn.

did some q's on an old uworld subscription, then just started today a new subscription, planning to do it twice.

Started today by doing a block of timed mode, and i'm lagging a little in reading the explanations, since they need some work, but my plan was to finish 2 blocks, which i don't think i'll be able to do today, as i'm getting a bit sleepy now.

But it's fine as i'm just adjusting my sleep rhythm back to normal.


Planning to get 260 and above.

So i did finish the 1st block, and i am going so slow in reading the explanations, which i don't have a reason for, maybe cause i am trying to understand them well.

Anyways i finished the block and was short on 7 q's.

So i need to speed up my reading a bit, and also improve my endurance as i felt that i was losing focus at the end of the block, i wonder how am i gonna survive 9 block

But i am determined to do it, as i already scheduled my exam, and i will start to push my boundaries the next couple of days.

I also realized that MTB is short on some important info that is needed to solve the Uworld q's, so i wrote some of these points down, and need to read some topics that they stressed on in uworld. eg. pericardial effustion..etc

2011 kln notes, they are not that good but they do help as a first read and as something to get back to in case you don't understand something.

But not as a book to revise before the exam especially since int.med is HUGE.
