Smile Thank you Lord...99/266

Thank you guys...........got my step 2 score yesterday
I am so happy...........actually I am a silent viewer here in this forum.........you guys have posts that were really helpful
I did Kaplan notes three times..........and uworld two times (offline)
I read MTB3 2 times
Did all NBMEs but offline...........answers given were weird ........discussed them with my study partner
Did Fred 1 week before exam and did 12 mistakes in total (91% correct)
When I finished my exam I was kind of depressed...........coz I did so many silly mistakes..........
When I did step 1..........I cud presume that the exam went fine----and got good score as well---------99/262
but after step 2-------I thought I would pass with score of round about 220's
but I got a great score
thank you all for your great posts
wish you all good luck

MTB = kaplan master the boards by conrad fisher.

MTB is available for step2ck and step3. u can use either book for ur preparation. many have said it is useful.

congrats aspirant!!! thats an awesome score. 99 for both steps. u must feel a great relieve. now only to get through with the interviews n get matched (and step 2cs n step 3).. good luck with the rest of the journey.
