i took my ck last week,i have prepared for 4 n half long months along with my final yr rotations.though untill hitting to prometric i was kinda ok with my prep but those long 9 hrs gave me another impression,i was clueless throughout the exam.
well when i strted first block the first qs itself was weird.....one derma pic which has no relation with qs....i was like what the f**k,i marked around 18 qs in first block and was bit depress............then 2nd block was bit okay but still i had 10-12 marked qs .......3rd 4th okay,but my nightmare started from 5th block it was fulll with 15 liner psych qs.......i had almost 80%psych qs in tht........then 6th 7th same story,flooded with psych......last block was bit ok but still lotsa psych.i wanted to cry coz psych was never my plus point .....and if u get a pt who has MDD,insomnia,drug abuse Hx,PLUS adhd HX.......what the hell u shud answer........and all options were wtf type,atleast 3 options were pretty close..........all atypical presentations...........cardio n neuro were almost 10-15 qs thats it(i m good in these areas )but sadly i got around 30% from im....psych was dominating almost 40% then peds n ob/gyn..surgery was lost somewhere except few nerve injury(basic anatomy qs)........and even i saw many microbio qs.......i mean straight forward micro qs..............around 10.
i dontknow how it went,but after exam i had v horrible feeling,i know everyone feels like this,but blve me exam was v tough.all i can do right now is pray to my lord.....only he can help me

Same experience exactly. But the principle works: you will get the same result as with NBME4.
At one point I went back to see if I was sitting for the right exam.....

Do you believe then that nbme 4 has best predictive score? I just hope so..
