@maoudoody

Tutor mode can save you time when reviewing the explanations because you don't have to read the stem again.

But DAMN 4-5 hours is wayyyyy too much for a block. One cannot say you are not through wink I had to cram all of USMLEworld in one go three weeks before my test and could not spend more than 2 hours / block INCLUDING reading explanations. I would not advise it though....


  #104

Yeah tutor mode is way to go...


  #105

well the thing is that i have kaplan notes and master the boards beside the computer......each question i made a rapid reading of the topic and sometimes the wrong answers too

hmmmm.....still prefering to do uw in the timed unused modegrin

now my score is 71% .....86th percentile

i feel uw for ck is not as tough as uw for step 1

just a feeling


  #106

it is tough, did you do questions before with another bank?

@maudoody

Goood Job! Just make sure that before you do the test, you try an NBME form(2 or 4) to make sure that your UW scores are translating into the scores you want on Step 2.

I did worse on Step 2 UW than Step 1 UW, and yet I got almost 18 points more on Step 2 than Step 1. UW scores are entirely dependent on the timing of you starting the qbank. If you start it early in your study, obviously the cumulative will be much lower than if you started it after you have completed all your studies.

That's why I always suggest an NBME for score estimation.

off course NBME is the best predictor.....i was going to take nbme 1......but since u say 2 and 4 more accurate will going to take 2 after my second reading and 4 before the test

thank you Doomestic

Hi V/Q ............I got 650/248 in NBME4 (Feb 2)........My exam is on Friday 26th...i am reviewing my notes from kaplan and UW.....what score can i expect on the eal exam? thanks...give me suggestions pl


  #111

well i got 580 on nbme2......this corresponds to 235 .......not too happy with it.......still have 2.5 months for the exam


  #112

NBME is well know because it under predicts a little bit your score, but not too much, try to study your weakness and do another NBME (form2, form 4, 5 or 6) one 1 week before the exam, if you feel confortable with the score then take it, if not postpone...

Good Luck.
