thanks amkh..consistency and regularity and patience are the key to usmle..cant afford frustration at any cost, this is what I have learned from my usmle journey so far..good luck guys..finally we have a thread like this on this forum..one question for all of you..do u recommend Kaplan for pediatrics and psychiatry ?? or can it b skipped and mtb 3 be used as the sole source?

guys..am getting too many surgery questions wrong..wasted my reading Kaplan for it I feel..hoping to start revising all subjects from 28th in 10 days i.e till june 7 along with a block of uworld..planning to give an nbme till june 7-10 maximum so that I can pick up a date for exam..otherwise , I 'll start with step 2 cs prep and wl try giving it by june end and then resume my step 2 ck prep ..that way I can get approx. 1.5 month time extra..


5/24/2013 1:38:13 PM
surgery should only be done from Uworld and MTB.
reading kaplan is a huge waste for this exam. kaplan is GREAT for part1, but it's average for part2. you would do better reading MTB.

the Kaplan book best to use for CK is internal medicine ONLY!!
everything else is from uworld and MTB. GOOD LUCK.

Aruna quick question. Whats a good nbme to take for the CK. How many Nbme do we have ???


5/29/2013 9:10:34 PM
NBME 2,3,4 and 6 I think..nbme 6 is the latest one but people say its almost similar to nbme 1 ( how it used to be) what I have heard is people take nbme 3 and 4 and UWSA for self assessment and it is a common belief that UWSA is the most predictive for ck..hows study going guys..??? I haven't done anything for the past 3 days..and today I am having a hard time concentrating on studies after a 3 day break..hopefully will be able to finish 70% uworld by the end of this week and will start revision before I take a an nbme..(most likely nbme 3)


5/30/2013 1:32:01 PM
Thanks Aruna. I really appreciate the advice. I might look into the UW assessment test soon.
Studying is going alright( SLOW but definitely CONSISTENT) but it could be better. Struggling with summer distractions loll.
WOOHOO scheduled for my exam in September 2013. Lets do this!!!!


5/30/2013 1:33:27 PM
And you are doing amazing. Keep up the inspiring study updates. It helps me to stay motivated to hear from you!!!


5/31/2013 5:50:17 AM
I think that nbme sa is harder and more predictive than other S.A. exams .


5/31/2013 11:27:45 AM
what is NBME sa? which NBME do you think correlates most to the real exam?


6/3/2013 5:26:01 PM
done with my block of UW tutor mode after a 3 day weekend. moving along. Wiggle


6/6/2013 9:11:49 PM
