Time to give my experience while the memory is still fresh.
1. Gojan audio is a must. I realized this when exam is over (only listened a
few sections, mainly b/c not crazy about his jokes :)
2. FA indeed HY. Only read 1.5 times and the regrets still pounding my heart
and it hurts.....so much.....don't even imagine!
3. Go over the wrong Qs in UW. The EXAM has the Qs from UW. You'll be.....
how to say this.... if you see such Qs and can't recall which one is correct,
expecially between two choices.
About the exam:
1. Either easy or hard Qs; easy like, give up a lot details of NF and then
ask you the diagnosis, kind of like most NBME Qs. Hard ones like ECG leads
which I totally have no idea. Some hard Qs like which gene defect in tubers
that you can easily guess tubulin, or whatever it looks like. I got many hard
Qs about muscles anatomy and I just keep guessing. Marked more than 10
or 12 each block. So keep in minds that maybe the new bank (don't know
about the old ones) really focus on if you REALLY understand the
disease. Like we know VHL gene defect cause blah...blah...., then how this
gene normaly function, that kind of staff. So I do feel a lot of times I know
this and the same time I can't answer the question. IF YOU HAVE TIME,
MAKE SURE YOU REALLY UNDERSTAND IT.
2. 48 qs per block and be prepared of the long stem. I think it comparable
to UW, so it wasn't a big deal for me. I do have 10-15 mins left on each block
( or probably too many unknown, so I just pick one and go on).
3. Audio/video qs: only met one( Thank God) and it's a heart sound. I didn't
even waste my time on it.
4. A lot of behavior qs which ask how you respond to pts, like women with
history of being raped doesn't want to do GYN exam, what do you do?
5. Finally on exam day, ladies, calculate your date.
Probably more convincing if I put score above, but I thought will be helpful
for the ones who will take exam soon.
For whatever score I got, I GIVE my shots and time to move on......
feel so damn good!
