I have taken USMLE step 2 CK exam date on 21st July 2013.
Finished one reading of Kaplan notes, one reading of MTB, completed UW Qbank one time till now and have 67% correct with solving random questions all blocks
Planning to take 1st NBME tomorrow, offline
then quick revision of MTB and then NBME form 4 or 6 online on 25th June
Then will revise all the incorrect questions from UW along with all the marked questions till 30th June and will take UWSA on 1st July
1st July to 10th July, one more revision of MTB and revision of all UW notes
11th July- one more NBME online 4 or 6
Last 10 days, will revise and read as much as possible
Have to take the date before taking the NBMEs as 27th July is last date of taking exam if we want our reports to come before application
Hope to do my best as I have high target for the CK scores!! :O

Ango, I can understand how scary it might be these last crucial days!
But, we have to make the most of it
Keep it up buddy
I finished my Uworld incorrect questions and marked questions, which were around 900 together!
Took NBME 1 (21st June)- 210
NBME 4 (5th July)- 202, scared the hell out of me
But I analyzed my scores and where I have made mistakes, my strong and weak subjects, where the problem lies- recall, concepts, etc.
Then I have reset Uworld, and have done nearly 50% questions till now!
I took UWSA today, and got 232
noyt bad, considering my NBME scores, but UWSA tends to overpredict the scores
Now, I will read all the UWorld notes I have prepared, then one revision of MTB, and finish the remaining reset UWorld!!
will take my final MTB in 5 days, hope to cross 240

Good luck and keep your high spirit up . 

Don't allow anything to disrupt or distract focus is what you need the most . The advise I know it cant be applied in my case. And I know If I could isolate myself from everything goinig around me for a couple of weeks everything will go fine. 

I reschedualed my exam for the last time till 15 August and booked a flight on 14th . as I don't have a testing center in my country. so from now on , there will be no hesitation or other options or people wasting my time for stupid things. 

By the way , how do you reset UWorld ?

And they usually say that UWSA gives the most approximate prediction not over-estimation rolling eyes

Anyways, good luck , and please keep updating as its really encouraging me.

Thank you Ango for ur encouraging words..smiling face
I am sorry to hear abt the testing center thing..sad
You got more than one month, I am sure you will do great..!! nod
To reset UWorld, go in utilities, there is reset tab, but u must be subscribed for 6 months to reset it..!
I hope what u say abt UWSA is correct and I will be able to improve on it...grin
study well...smiling face

one question, did u do extended feedback from nbme 3 , do u know how many qs got incorrect


On Jul 27, 2013 - 3:07 PM, NBD responded:
I got 156 correct and 30 incorrect
I did not take extended feedback
hope it helps smiling face


  #12

thanks, but , if u did not take extended feedback how u do u know how much incorrect you got. did they give u number of incorrect qs


On Jul 28, 2013 - 9:13 AM, NBD responded:
Ya, thats correct.
Form 3 does not come with extended feedback
So I got 560/235
Then I saw some table I downloaded to see how many questions I got correct
The table gives us estimation
It was correct for form 4 which I took extended feedback


  #13

ok
, thanks
how about usmle world , in step 1 i observed that in uwas u get way more qs incorrect but, better score. in step 1 uwas i got 45 q incorrect but got 252


  #14

Ya, the scoring is very different for UWSA and NBMEs
But questions in UWSA are tougher than in NBMEs, I think that is the main reason you get more score in UWSA with lesser correct percent


  #15

thank you NBD , would you please post the table you have for estimations of incorrect Qs ?


  #16

table
