Smile Got my CK score 99/241

Hi guys!!!

I got my STEP 2 CK score today!!

two digit---99
three digit----241

I hope this is good enough...

Thank you all the FORUM STAFF and the awesome members...due to some personal reasons I couldn't actively participate in the step 2 CK forum as much as I did in step 1 forum but nevertheless whenever I needed some help this forum was always there ...

I studied for 4 months..

Used Kaplan lecture notes and qbank.
along with UWORLD qbank...
and also used USMLE CONSULT qbank that I had won in this forum for being among the top 3 most active member in a month...

When I came out of the exam I felt as if I had switched off the light and didn't remember anything asked...in fact I didn't look at books so had no idea of how my exam went...I was just glad it was over...

well 3 weeks later result came...got exactly the same score that I had got in UWORLD ASSESSMENT...

OK guys ..good luck to you all...

I will try to answer your questions if there is any....

thanks again!!

congratulations usmleguy ! great scores !

i am also preparing for CK nowadays, there are 3 months left and i have read medicine and surgery and have 3 more subs to go.. im inspired you could finish in 4 months with such a good score.

how many hours did you study ?
would you recommend using any additional sources like first aid or blueprints ?

first of all thanks...
abt ur questions..
the concept tested in step1 and step2 ck are different.. and i believe if you go through the Kaplan books thoroughly and do the questions i feel even without doing step 1 you can score good.. as has happened many times..
i think kaplan is enough...the books are very well written and easier to revise too..i myself didnt use any other material beside kaplan lecture notes...i had bought FA but didnt even look at it after hearing experiences by the past exam givers... good luck...

hi.. thanks..
i didnt do NBMEs... just took UWORLD ASSESS 1 WEEK B4 the exam ..
my UWORLD SCORES were mostly in the range of 70s with occasional 80s and even few 60s... but mostly in the range of 70s...
i went through the kaplan qbook once...the questions are OK..it is worth one attempt for sure since u will get into the groove of doing questions..

Congratulations usmleguy!

What were your cumulative scores in UW and Kaplan qbanks (in case you had done them in a timed, random mode)?

keep doing random timed blocks ...
and do NBME or UWSA in the end... if u arent satisfied then its not a bad idea to push ur exam and go through Kaplan LN once again..
good luck..
