发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Tue Dec 30 00:16:04 2008)

This guy got 98/236. His suggestion is good:

My exam preparation-
Step 1 score-87/211 , I was disappointed and thinking of not writing the
step 2 at that time.

prep time-8 months
materials used -kaplan lecture notes,FA for some topics
q bank-UWorld -62%(half of blocks in untimed,half in timed.....did the wrong
ones 2nd time)
nbme's- 2-490(2 mon before)
1-520(45 days before)
3-500(15 days before)
4-520(2 days before)
exam date-17/11/08
score received on-10/11/08

here is how to score BIG.....

1.Setting the goal-
most common mistake-setting a goal just to pass or score just above the 90.
dont aim for anything less than 99.any body can score 99,if u hold ur nerves
.

2.Preperation-

Books-Most common mistake-going for multiple sources

kaplan lecture notes is enough in general.select any one of review books,
which ever is comfortable for u. (there is no single best review book for CK
,unlike in step1 where we have FA)

Q bank- Most common mistakes-doing a q bank in 'untimed' mode,starting a q
bank too early in the preperation.

UW is the single best q bank for CK.do the wrong ones 2nd time.its better to
do a single q bank twice than to do 2 different q banks 1 time each.

NBME's-Most common mistake-doing all the forms offline.

take atleast 1 form online,best time would be 2 wks before exam.form 1 over
predicts,form 3 underpredicts your score.form 2 will be best predictor.from
my personal observation, u r bound to increase ur score by atleast 8 points
than form 3 prediction,in real exam.....beware of that.

USMLE CD-spare it for the day before exam.do atleast 2 blocks on the day
before exam, thinking as if they are the blocks from real exam and know
where ur doing the mistakes,dont repeat them in real exam.

3.This forum- Very very helpful,especially if ur preparing alone.visit the
forum atleast once in every 2 days.if possible run ur own journal on this
forum.

4.Real exam-

Basic approach-dont spend much time on the q's the u know and on the q's
that u dont know completely.spend time on border line q's(where u stuck on 2
options)

Breaks-u can plan according to ur comfort.but 1 thing is...dont use more
than 40 min of break time before starting ur 6th block.because most of us
got exhuasted by 6th7th block.


5.After the exam- celebrate like never before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
