hey guys,
I benefited from this forum alot and found answers for many questions I had
so I would like to share my experience in step 1 and ready to help others

time of preparation : 8 months
sources : FA , kaplan videos , pathoma , HYNA
Qbanks : Uworld ( did it 1.5 times ) ; first time is 79% untimed systems based

did bunch of offline NBMEs

online NBME :
NBME 13 : before 40 days of exam : 241
NBME 15 : before 20 days of exam : 249
UWSA1 : before 15 days of exam : 260
NBME 16 : before 9 days : 258
UWSA2 : before 4 days : 260

real deal : 247 :)

the exam was hard, long. there were alot of Qs on anatomy, obs & gyne , and hematology ( i felt like alot )
I advise you guys need to solve more questions and prepare for the stress in the real exam and to deal with the time of each block and total exam time which was really tiring

best of luck for every1

Hello

Hi,

Thank you so much for posting your experience and Congratulations!!

can you tell us what to do for Anatomy questions?Like was it solvable by just reading FA or you suggest us to do something else?

Thanks!

dear docmoumi, thank you very much well, there were some anatomy that you can recall from your studies or even college , whereas some that included nerves names and ligaments that I had no clue about
I think it would be a good idea if you skimmed Netter atlas for pelvis and abdomen .
best of luck
