标 题: my first step experience
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Wed Oct 22 22:20:37 2008)
It's time to contribute my experience.
an Old CMG, a mom of two, full time job. takes 7 months to prepare for the
exam. I have to say that I do not need to look up dictionaries from the
beginning. If you are not familiar with the vocabulary, you got to add
extra time to prepare for the exam.
started with golian lectures (3-4 times) and quickly went through kplan note
once.went through kplan q bank 2006 (in 4 weeks). Did not get a chance to review
the wrong questions.
First aid total 4 times. It takes 4 weeks for the first time and only 3
days for the last time right before examination.
UW qbank timed mixed overall correction rate 68% (in two months). went
through all the wrong questions in 2 weeks before exam.
NBME form 1 (download): right after finish kplan q bank 12 wrongs/ block
NBME form 3 (online) two weeks before exam: 570
NBME2 and 4 (download): several days before exam 6-7 wrongs/ block
have a little panic within 5 min of the first block and then desensitized
My first two blocks are harder than UW, last two blocks are easier than NBME.
This is something I was not expected. I am pretty sure that I am a
reasonable, logical person with average IQ. The only difference is that I
dared to take risk for a more practical test preparation. I picked the high
yield test preparation materials from the previous posters on this forum (
many thanks to all of them!)and tried to get the most over the limited
time. There are people like me who can not spend as much time as they want
to prepare for the exam and also our final goal is to achieve somewhere
above 95. My strategy works at least for me and I hope to share with all of
you as one possibility.
1. exam is doable
2. understanding is more important than just memory
3. Golian lecture is the key that can lead you into the world of understanding
4. aiming high (99) but expecting low (95), this will make our life less
