Smile The USMLE Step 2 & me...I'm done!!!

Preparation time = 1.5 months
(I took Step 1 in mid Sept and CS in early Nov)
Exam date Dec 29th

Materials:
- Kaplan videos (all except for surgery and Emergency Medicine) = I watched them once
- MTB for Step 2 CK read it once
- Kaplan LN for IM, Dermatology and ObGyn

UW (timed unused random) = 79% one time
Kaplan Step 2 Qbank (completed less than 20%...only surgery/Psychiatry/EM) 72%

USWA = 260 (10 days before my exam)
NBME 4 = 570/246 (2 days before my exam)

Test:
I had 5 blocks - 44 qs each and 3 blocks - 42 qs each.
The question stems were pretty long!…A lot of orthopedics, psychiatry and biostatistics.

Well, good luck to all and happy new year!
