Default Passed!

Passed, 253!

Used USMLEworld, first pass ~72%
Subsequently only went through the wrong answers
UWSA 250
Used MTB
Studied for 3 weeks, 3-4 hours a day

Day of exam itself, generally the questions were doable but lengthy. They test concepts and not hard core memorization (this is not step 1).

CCS were fun and straightforward.

Let me know if you've any questions, I'll try to answer them as best as I can

Congratulations on the awesome score!
You've given a pretty good description of how you went about your prep, so just a few qs.

Did you solve or go through any of the nbmes?
Did you find that they tested topics from Step1 - Patho/Physio?
Were the CCS cases similar to UW?
Finally, was MTB3 enough to help aid the prep?
