Default UWorld CCS..

Hi everyone.
My CCS is in 2 days, I don`t have much time to review all the UW CCS.
I did only the 51 cases without reading the 41 Readout cases!!

Which is more important? readout or the 51 cases?

Just don't panic and read out these 41 cases, one whole day is enough if you just read them without practicing it on the software itself.

Have you done Kaplan Q-bank, how much was your UWSA scores?
Have you already taken Day 1?

Good job! Would you mind if ask three more questions? Do you think Kaplan is necessary, how much were your 1st and 2nd pass of UW in % and on UW some consecutive questions are not locked, so you can go back and change the answer. Is that the same with real Test, and how was your Fred-practice cession? How hard is biostat, how was your time management? - Just a quick bullet style answers - don't want waste your time. All the bests on Day 2!

No Problem. I think Kaplan is unnecessary; it`s like a review of MTB, and the exam questions are much harder! My UW 1st pass was 66%, did only the wrong answers the 2nd time. In the real exam, there is no way you can change the answer for the 1st q. Biostat was the hardest part, esp the drug ads and interpretation of the clinical trials.
I have no idea what Fred-practice cession is!

Good luck in your exam

Thanks much for answers, Fred is http://www.usmle.org/practice-materials/ there are 4 additional CCS cases - Pneumothorax, Aortic Dissection, RA, and Eclampsia - go through it to increase your confidence ultimately. For me two weeks left until Day 1, I did UW once, also 65%, went through wrongs, did the second pass of UW with 86% in average, but I think I was getting them right simply because of memory. No Kaplan yet. MTB is just too boring...

1) Have you watched Kaplan Lectures for the Step 3, they are new ones which will cover patient safety and drug add chapters.
2) What do you think about Archer question, about 500-free question available on his blog?

Thanks again - 9 more hours of struggle and USMLE will be totally in history for you. All the best man, shine as star and kick the ass of Day 2!
