listen. 198 is not a good score for part 1, but if you get a very high score for part2ck (240+) you still have a great chance of getting into residency. make sure you don't have any attempts on CS and CK and my suggestion to you is if you are going to take CK take part 3 soon after. DON'T WORRY CALM DOWN and get an extremely high score on part 2ck. take your time learning and don't rush anything. you cannot take any of these exams until you get like 240+ on your nbme. NBME is +/-5 from your actual score.

Do people normally make 40 point jumps on step 1 to step 2? Seems tough IMO... Id get a 220 and step 2 and don't apply for competitive matches...

yes it is doable to make a 40 point jump. you just have to go over the material many times.
