Default Just took Step 2 CK!

I feel like a have failed the test, i hope not.

Overall it was doable, but the Drug Ads and abstracts questions take a lot of time to read through

On the second block i missed the last question because the time ran out and last 3 questions had to read really fast

I felt confident overall in all the other blocks

Some of my stats:

UWSA: 256

Uworld overall score, random, unused: 70%

Do i have a chance of a good score??

Thanks!

I found the test very doable in most questions. I think that the most difficult part of the test was the biostats questions

Ob/gyn wasn't very difficult in my opinion. Just a couple of fetal heart rate tracings, vaginitis, etc

Congrats for getting through! By your assessments and what you have said I think you prbably did great!

Biostats are my absolute worst subject by far.
Roughyl how many Q's do you think you had? Did you have to apply a formula to them all?

Thats kind of a relief, I know they have increased biostats Q's on the ck so I was thinking you had like 20 bio stats Q's with like 10 you had to apply a formula for. Thanks for replying I really appreciate it.

Thanks!

I didn't read MTB3, just MTB2 and Step Up Step 2 CK

I think that MTB3 and the vignettes in kaplan would be a good approach + Uworld of course
