Stats USMLE Step 2 CK Questions Distribution

I tried to study the question distribution of the USMLE Step 2 CK exam by major discipline. So what I did I examined
NBME Form 1, USMLE CD, USMLEConsult, Kaplan Qbank, USMLERx, and USMLEWorld banks.
Then I sorted out the questions by major discipline (manually in the case of the USMLE CD and NBME Form) and calculated the percentage of each.
Then averaged out the percentages out of all these.
This should give us an idea about the real distribution of the USMLE Step 2 CK exam.

So here's the final results of the break down plotted into a pie chart

thanks for your useful thread, I agree with you too, especially in internal medicine we should try to read more than what is in Kaplan book (lecture notes).

Default Best guideline

This is the best effective way. I am going to grab this formula though I will improvise it myself. But isnít it tiresome and time-consuming? Ok. Let me implement first. Superb study guideline. Keep up dude. Thanks
