Congrates. That's a great score!
Please share your NBME scores and exam experience. most of recent takers are saying that there are lots of weird anatomy questions.. How did it go for you?
Best of luck for next steps.

Regarding urinary incontinence.. what type questions were given? Is it about pathophysiology or Dx? Step 2 FA mostly covered Dx and investigations. should we go through all over it?
Thank you..

Great score...congratulations
Finally something motivating from recent takers.
How much do FA & uworld cover?

Thank u.
i think uworld fa along with nbmes is a great source of questions..and i think it is enough..i did only this..i was expecting a tough exam because ppl were saying they changeed the pool or smthing and hence questions have become much more tougher..but it was tough not that difficult as ppl exaggerated! it was like nbme 16 to be precise!

Fa or mtb

between first aid, and MTB, which is better in preparing for CK? or do you have to read both of them?
