Post Study Material for USMLE Step 2 CK

Hello. Are MTB step 2 CK + MTB Step 3 + USMLE Step 2 Secrets + UWORLD sufficient to score over 90th percentile. What score would they get you? Keeping in mind I have not studied for or taken Step 1, this is my first exam for any of the steps, and I am an IMG.

Hey Pandazard,

don't bother about percentiles. Nowadays nobody knows which score is equivalent of which percentile. Your USMLE score report only shows the 3-digit score. The old 2-digit score also wasn't a percentile at all.

Those resources are the most commonly used books/qbanks to prepare for Step 2 CK, however they don't guarantee a great score. Some people have gotten > 270 with those books/qbanks, some failed the exam with the exact same resources.

We don't know you and your strengths/weaknesses. It's up to you to regularly evaluate yourself with the NBME exams and see if those resources are sufficient for your study methods.

Have you already graduated and have clinical experience under your belt? If yes, then Step 2 CK should be significantly easier than Step 1 for you. But be aware that as an IMG with no exposure to US exams is a significant disadvantage during your dedicated study time. Try to familiarize yourself with the qbanks and the timing.
