Congratulations . Please i want you to answer my questios indetail please please .............

I study from Kaplan 2001 .
I read bioch once and scored 52% in Kaplan QBook , Micro once and scored 60% . Is it satisfactory ?
I do not want to use any other Q other than Kaplan QBook 2001 (850q ) .What do you think of that ? Is it necessary to use NMS and Kaplan online ?
I want to use Kaplan Path instead of BRS Path. What do you think about that ? If I use Golgan Path Audio with Kaplan Path , is it enough ? What are the causes of inferiority of Kaplan Path according to some people ?
Please I need your honest answer. I am an IMG .

hi everybody, smiling face
i would like to share my experience in preparation with all of u...
5-6 hrs a day for 5 months excluding week ends was my schedule.
i read kaplan 2001 live lecture notes....listened to goljan lectures..very useful..
i worked out questions from kaplan online q bank and q book thoroughly..I also worked questions from NMS,few from B.S.S.

do as many Qs as possible...that always helps...and last 2 weeks i revised kaplan notes once completely...i read FA (first aid)..but i couldn't remember all facts in it..

exam tests our confidence so it is must that we keep ourself calm in last two weeks...only revise in last two weeks..do not read new stuff then...

i write notes , when i read....and revised that in last two weeks...along with kaplan notes...that was very helpful..

all the best for all of u preparing... :icon_thumb:

hi doctorjha

i took exam on may 10th , so hopefully u will get ur result in a week..

hi salehhero,

i listened to goljan lectures and made notes of it...i have no idea about BRS... kaplan patho is not presented in a good way to revise..that is the problem with it... i am also an img..if i had my robbins with me that would have been my only source for patho...so i depends on which u r comfortable with for revision...if u r listening to goljan lectures..i think that is more than enough for patho...becos he makes u to understand the concepts in a simple way..ALL THE BEST..

hi reem,
exam is a task...for which u need mental preparation...
i love words from a great person who said..
To suceed,
U SHOULD KNOW WHAT U DO , AND

U SHOULD LIKE WHAT U DO

AND

U SHOULD HAVE CONFIDENCE IN WHAT U DO..

that's it...i am an img..i read for 5-6 hrs/day..(which is highly variable..some days i will not be able to read at all...and week ends are completely with my family)...i guess most of us will have to work part time or take care of family..
so believe me..it is the quality of time that matters more than quantity of time..so even if only 3-4 hrs/day...work with confidence...
i fixed my exam schedule even before i started reading...that fixes ur mind...so i made up my mind to do in that month with out giving excuses..
discuss with ur online friends..that also helps to boost ur concepts...
i read for 5 months in total.....hours of work as i said fluctuated according to family needs... maximum was 6 hrs...towards the exam i could appreciate kaplan notes better than at tthe beginning...(after working up so many qs....).. perfect plan will make ur exam perfect..(along with prayers)..ALL THE BEST ...

Hello Usmleaser ,
What type of question contents of NMS ? Does it contain answers with explanations of the MCQ ? What is the difference between it and Kaplan QBook ? To what extent is it useful ?


  #20

hi salehhero,

i used NMS in cd format..yes it has explanations for qs..it is good...but not a must.. if u have taken online q bank...go with it first ...do as many qs as possible from standard books..kaplan /NMS/BSS... may not be able to do everything...no problem as long as we r getting the concepts..
