After 3 weeks waiting, finally I can relax now.
For the study, just follow all posted in 精华区. Picasab's post is a very
good review for all available material.
I relied on kaplan notes and UW, read part of Boards and Wards, which is
good at EKG part. The EKG part in B and W is enough for the test.
I spent the first three months on reading notes and doing a little questions
. It turned out not effective enough. I did the NBME form 5 weeks before
the test, just got a passing score. I was freaked out. But I didn't want
to push my test back. So I focused on UW. 3-4 blocks every day, mix, timed
and taking detailed notes. Two weeks later, my NBME score was improved by
60. But still far away from good. But I felt that I was in the right
track, so I kept doing the UW 3-4 blocks everyday till the day before the
test. One week before the test, I did the USMLE CD, got 37/40/41.
I thought I was ready for the test. I didn't dare to do another NBME, even I
had downloaded form 3 before. I didn't even take a look. Because I didn't
want to be panic. Being calm is more important to get one or two more
questions. I just told myself that I improved my score in two weeks then I
can get another score jump according my progress.
The most useful thing I think is UW. My defination for getting a question
is not only remembering the right answer but also finding out the rationale
behind it and what's the trap in the question. In the real test, I felt
confident on those questions where I could find the trap.
I got 2-3 media questions in each block. For heart sounds and murmur, this
website is good enough for the test http://depts.washington.edu/physdx/heart/demo.html
Good luck for everyone.
