USMLE Scores How I scored 97/234 in CK!

I prepared for 4 months, with great intensity for around 3 months.

I read kaplan notes once with videos for all subjects.

After which i went for UW subscription for 2 months. Taking notes and transcribing them into Kaplan Notes. I finished it by revising only wrong ones and marked ones.

Then I read kaplan notes line to line once after UW along with my own UW notes.

Then i took UWSA 15 days before my exam, on which i scored 96.
Nbme 2 online 10 days before my exam, scored 95.
Finally gave a rapid revision of kaplan and appeared for the exam...

Time management is most important on final exam. I was prepared to sacrifice a couple of questions in each block but reducing the no of questions from 46 to 44 was really helpful. Absolutely no time to revise the marked ones.

God bless you all

Thanks for sharing with us your experience and congrats on the great scores.

Just wanted to say that this is another proof that First Aid is not needed for Step 2 CK as detailed in this thread

I've done CK then Step 1. But I faced tremendous difficulties with Step 1. I wished that I've done the reverse.
