Hi there! my exam is on dec 17 and i am very confused coz i scored terrible on nbme 4 last night. I think the pathophysiology and mechanism of the diseases are killing me. Could u plz share your exam experience about how much is expected of that stuff on step 2. And whatever you think is significant .. Thanks
I wouldn't put too much stock in the nmbes. I only got 235 and I had studied a good 95% of what I saw in the exam by the time I did nmbe 4. I wasted 3 months needlessly. Do USWA, that gives you a way more accurate idea of what you'll score. If you did well in step 1 I'm pretty sure you'll do well in step 2ck. I wrote an exam experience. Read that, it might help you.
