hey hey I changed my mind and read Dr.Fisher ethics book today since it was so popular and I had it in my hand.... I don't know why its so popoular, even its a good book, explainations are not that perfect... But I am glad I read it today.... Its a small book, 5-6 hours is enough to finish both the content and 100Q if you have good background of medical ethics and not reading it word to word.... Maybe becuse Dr.Dougherty gave me really good overall explaination , which made the book seemed easy to read.

I have 1.5 hpurs left today until pick my baby from preschool, so should I start UW or maybe subscribe and start tomorrow???? Maybe I will try free one block Q's that Kaplan offer????

Okay, i'll go with the Kaplan grin


Finally, I just recieved my permission I am registered to take USMLE step 2 CK between Dec 2013-Feb2014 Wanna choose my date after finishing UW once.

After I did one free block of Q from Kaplan Qbank yesterday, I felt I am still too "RAW" I have to do more n more Q'sssssssssssss

Im depressed after start doing UW I am not performing good, i know its a learning tool, but my scores are not getting better but worse


Im being so slow..... But that's okay As long as I am learning from it.

Dont surprise how bad my performance is, bc I am being honest here

So far did only 3 blocks, 52%, 50%, 50%.

There is 2214 test on UW. I have 2082 more to go.

Will review today's test, it could take forever since I had half of them wrong.....

I started reviewing MTB 2 this morning. A chapter a day, followed by 1-2 blocks of UW dayly on weekdays (I wish I had full day and be able to study on weekends But I am thankful for having 7-8 hours on weekdays)

Hey man, as long as you are learning from world. Don't use world to assess yourself. Just keep getting better. The only real tool out there to assess yourself is these nbmes and uwsa.

Keep Going. No letting up!

Yes, you are right, its not for assess but to learn from UW, and I am getting better and reading MTB too, so score is getting better, and i feel better even though thats not the estimator

I finished total of 11 blocks during last week and read Ob and GYN from both MTB 2&3. Also some random chapters from endocrinology.

I forgot tomorrow is the Sir Martin's bday and my daughter has no school and had my shcedule accordingly....... But that's okay, i will try to do at least one block tomorrow.

I am doing great, my brain was little frozen from that 3 weeks of gap but gained my streght pretty fast. Now I am feeling the test, feeling the questions and scores raised to 70+ havent reach 80+ yet but hopefully i will on next week smiling face
