Finally got it done. Was a real nice surprise, thought I was going to flank
Applied and got scheduling permit in the end of May, could not schedule near
my home, decide to wait till
July, spoke with my chief resident, she gives me one month of ED rotation to
take my step 3.
UW, did one time, 55%, took notes in first aid. (in april, may, starting
june, two weeks of orientation, then two
weeks of night float, did not read anything)
CCS UW, did all the simulated 44 (or 40?) cases. (4-5 days)
Read first aid one time, (4 days)
did nbme two days before test, got only 290. thought I am going to fail. my
LD said 别拖了，so I went.
take home message,
1 nbme is highly not predictable. (partly bc it does not include ccs?).
2 closely related to step 2, do it as soon as u can (ie, start prep right
after ck, schedule immediately after get
3 2 week full-time prep is really enough. (amg always say, 2m-2w-2d, meaning, 2m for step 1, 2w for ck, and 2d for step 3)
family practice book is too big to read, bought the new edition, read about 10 pages.
