Default about uworld

hi all ..
Finished uw once , now doing it again . I was wondering does uw miss out on some really important topics . I know its the best and there are nt many , but i felt that it didnt dig in too miuch into mi treatment, like wen u do angioplasty or cabg etc , also in obgyn there not alot qs on abnormal pap smears , i did see a q on ascus but nthing more than that .

Do you guys feel that way ? Does anybody have any topics in mind , real imp ones which uw didnt touch and we shud revise them from other sources?

Cheers !

Yes I totally agree ,but the syllabus is too vast .Uwolrd cannot accommodate all topics.
U brought a very good point ,I think Uworld dint cover pap smear well.kaplan qbank had lot of Qs and in the main exam I heard there r many Qs on the topic.

Also Preventive medicine as a whole is not well covered .We should review it form a book .

Arrhythmias and heart sounds need to be reviewed as well.

Milestones are not well covered .but may be they r low yield ,but who knows.

I hope others also bring up some topics, they think r not well covered by uworld
