Listening Recommendations for final preparation for CK?

Hey guys

I have my Step 2 CK exam booked for Tuesday (6 days away).

My preparation has been all of the Kaplan books, some of the Kaplan videos, and USMLE World.

My plan is to keep going through USMLE world Qbank, until I'm done answering all the questions. To go through all of my "marked" and incorrect questions on UW and to read up any other topics that I keep on getting wrong.

I am not feeling amazingly confident about the test, I think with some more time I would score higher, by my UWSA test last week scored predicted 227. I was initially aiming for at least a low 99, so ~232, and from what I have gathered, UWSA seem to over-predict your score? So 227 isn't that great. A friend of mine who has been scoring better than me on UW recently did NBME form 2 and got a prediction of something like 200, which would be a disaster for me.

Can anyone recommend any last minute things I can do to prepare for the test? I have 4 full days worth of work so it would really help if people can suggest anything. I am going to do the Free 150 tomorrow and keep running simulated tests over the weekend.

Don't do the Free 150
Do NBME
See if it predicts what you want, if not, then postpone your exam

Unfortunatley it costs 500 to postpone the exam this close to the date, which I cannot afford. Furthermore, due to my schedule with med school finals and various other commitments, this is really the only time I could have done this exam, so it is not an option really. I think I will do an NBME on the weekend. Thanks

$519.00 USD for International Zone 3 (which includes Europe).

But like I said, it pretty much has to be this date anyway, so it's not really an option to be honest.
