Smile Bye bye USMLE

Just got my score and I'm done with the USMLE!
Got 245/89.... VERY happy about this!
Good luck to everybody else.

My preparation:
KLN step 2 CK
MTB step 3
UW - average score 72%
Kaplan Q bank - average score 72%
UWSA - 251 (660) - UWSA has always been a good predictor for me in all steps.

I'm not sure which Q bank I would recommend, both are different and good. Personally I like the layout of UW much better, Kaplan tends to freeze, or sometimes has stuff highlighted (I thought that was really weird), but in terms of content, both are good. I do think however, that the Kaplan Q bank is tailored to MTB-3 but that's just my opinion.

For the real thing: the first day is exhausting! I felt like 2 days of call in a row, long questions, lots of thinking to do and not much time. I finished all questions but you have to be quick and practice a lot.
The second day is slower all in all, at least in the MCQ part. CCS are a challenge but doable. Practice a lot! Time management is very important here. Most cases finish early (at least in my case they did).

Good luck!
