Here we go again..P4U has been with me all the way thro for nearly 2 years..and here I am with the final hurdle...A week since I started Step3 prep . using MTB and UW.
Done 40% of UW MCQs..avg score so far is pretty bad..57...
My averages in s1 and s2 were in the late 60s....but anyway..Rome was not built in a day!
I gotta buck up..just got to know the nitty gritty..that one reason why an echo is done instead of a cardiac catheterization...
My aim for S3- 260 (aim for the sky).
I have to increase the hours Im reading..wasting too much time reading Tech sites and football news. And netflix..i freaking hate you. Deleting you from my phone.
Gonna read explanation for the 10 test now.
Will report back in 3 hours.
Glory Awaits! Victory!

Ok that kinda took more than three hours...
Dumb mistake on the test...
why the hell would I do cardiac cath before an echo in a patient with?vsd?
Moron!
Whoever knew you could get CPPD crystals in Hemochromatosis???
Now for another test!
Victory!


  #3

ok..done with that..
The ethics questions are so funny in UW!
The patient is extremely attractive and displays her cleavage..hehehe...
and options were like
Accept her offer for a date and dont document it (2% actually chose this)
accept and document(2%)
tell her that you will inform her boyfriend about it(1%)
seriously? i think guys were just fooling around!
now for the explanations!
reporting again in 4 hrs!

I dozed off last night..went thro only half of the explanations,.Well ill make up for it today.
Plan for the day
Complete the remaining explanations
2tests with explanation
TRY to read a bit of ER from MTB
VICTORY!
