Correct Answer Step1 passed

Hi everyone, I've been reading a lot about your experience before, during and after the test. Everything I read gave me confidence.

In my case, I'm an IMG, graduated in 2001 (yeah, I'm vintage, I worth more everyday) Lots of concepts from basic science were new or I remembered having studied back in the middle 90's

I have two medical specialisties, (general surgery and urology) but that is just a little advantage.

Today I received my score, it's 220. For me, that's huge.
I know there are some guys saying that they are far above. I don't mind.
I'll try to rely on my field experience to get a nice position.

The thing is...
-if you are a native English speaker(I'm not)
-young (I'm not)
-brilliant (I'm not for sure)
-med school supported (I'm not )
YOU CAN DO IT without any questions.

I wish you all the best.

Remember, don't let your lack of confidence leads your way.

Go for it!!!!

I suggest you go to the sources.
ECFMG web site has everything you need to know(it's overwhelming at the beginning). It's the official info.

Then, search on this forum about tactics, plans and recommendations but not otherwise because the real facts are at the ECFMG. Don't get skewed by the opinion of anyone. Even me. ')
Another suggestion is to visit medbullets for high yield topics.
There you have a good starting point.
Best regards.
