Yes now you have 46 questions per block instead of 48 as posted here

Other anticipated changes are to emphasize more on clinical scenarios rather that just merely asking about factoids.
This change has been detailed here

yes no more simple questions all are now a paragraph situation.

Some of the pharm are experiments, they are all theory with drugs x and Y

this threw me when I took my step one.

glad the nightmare is passed!
