Hi,

I'm taking this freaking exam sometime in May...
So, I'm as interested as you are. Borrowed this from usmleforum.com. a guy sit on the two days of the exam in January 2015. Here's the post:
"Day 1 was full of biostatics & drug adds. It was less of a foundation (FIP) than day 2 frankly. For prospective takers, my advice is, master uworld (biostatistics, qbank, & ccs), Conrad's Master the Boards & correlations & clinical scenarios esp internal medicine (the only one I read of the 4 series). Unfortunately I didn't have time to finish the unworldly bioststistics as well as ccs due to my job. Studied mainly from mid-Nov till I took the exam while still working 40 hrs full time. For day 1, time Mgmt is a big issue because of the drug adds and stems are also longer compared to day 2 mcqs. For the drug adds, I suggest u go the last part of the question stem to know what is being asked before going to the drug to skim through otherwise u may not finish 70% of the questions. However this may not apply to all the drug add questions. Biostatistics Qs were so many (about 20% or more). Day 1 seemed dissimilar to unworldly Qs but principles are same only they appeared harder. Per scheduling, best to schedule both exams less than one week apart b/4 studying fatigue sets in & before u get carried away by focusing only on ccs forgetting u still have about 198 mcqs to tackle on day 2. My unworldly overall performance was 74 @ 89th percentile but was a month before the exam.Did not renew qbank one month subscription as I made a lot of notes I review during my lunch break at work & each time come back from work, sleeping about 3-4 hrs per night for over one month. Results will be out in April & I believe the Lord for the best despite my shortcomings esp for day 1 & part of ccs".
Hope this helps.
Good luck
V
