Thanks a lot!


Hi Every body!! I got my results a week ago!! I am thrilled and happy about the results. here is the resources i have tried:
first i start with kaplan lecture books with DVD and aftet i finishedeach section I tried UW 2010 Offline which i got from my friends, and then move to another section, after finishing all of them, i started to exam myself by online UW, and that was when i realized i should have move faster from LN to uw , and this is the first thing every body should know about usmle, i think that LN only cover the base of your knowledge and the true measurement of your knowledge start when you start answering the uw questions, i think i read UW three time till 3 days before my exam, i was not sure about the extending uw till the exam but i have done it and i don't regret it now. My percentile in uw was always above 95 .when i though i was ready i take UW self assessment and i got 262 and then scheduled my test date, in the mean time i took NBME 4 and 2 consecutively, first with form 4 and then form 2. form 4=260 and form 2= 246
in the day of exam, i was full stress, i cant think that i am actually taking an exam that i have spend 8 month before studying for it. at first i think i read first 5 questions 3 or 4 times and marked 10 questions in average in each block, the bio statics was awful and finally the exam ended. i came out and i thought my score would be lower than 220. after 3 weeks i got my results and my score was 259. i can not believe that. so i think NBME is the best estimator, and every body, while you are taking the exam you think that it might be worse exam ever but the results showed another thing, so don't panic just study hard. i forgot to say that, i am IMG and i had part time job all this time, so i think for somebody in my situation will take 8 month to read all of them


Dear niloofar
Congratulations! You did great! I hope you do even better for step 1 eventhough i know the score you got is excellent! Thanx for sharing our experience :-)


this is a great post. surely going to follow. i got 3 months before i take step 2 ck. and i need to score good! there is no more 2 digit score so what 3digit score would be equivalent to 99? smiling face

and as for the role model....i got none. maybe you now
