I prepared for a total of 2.5 months. Used Kaplan and Premierreview as the
reference reading materials. But I think the most impt. thing for a short-
time preparation strategy is to do as much Qbank as possible:
1. UW score 65% mixed
2. Kaplan Qbook 35-42/50
2. Kaplan 72% topic by topic
3. Kaplan IM 65%
4. Kaplan simulative 79%
5. USMLE CD 42/45/43
6. nbme 1 700/nbme 2 640/nbme 3 670(10/6/3 days before exam).
2 weeks before exam: focus on all the Qs I did wrong before 1 week before:
focus on my own notes (mainly summarised from Qbank) and a brief review of
notes from premier
My general advice:
Short peroid intensive preparation is a very good strategy.
- IM ~70%; Others evenly distributed.
- Concepts are very impt. Style similar to UW I think. Both UW and Kaplan
are impt. Do both if you have time and make notes from them.
- I got quite a lot of lengthy Qs. Some even more than 10 lines. Lengthy vs
short Qs: 60% to 40%
- Cardi, resp, GI, surgery, Pedi, infection, biostat (simple numbers):
straight forwards; Derma, neuro, haemato, endo, OG, medical legal, psychi,
preventive medicine needs to have very clear concept, they will not be too
- Pay attention to immunisation in preventive med, they are quite heavily
Pedi normal development and simple syndromes as well.
- Try to memorise common labs, that really save you lots of time.
- Whenever encounters Qs you have no idea, don't panic. Just skip it and go
back later. You will find it easier to get the answer if you have calm down(
after doing other Qs you are familiar)
- I took breaks every 2 blocks. Brought a lot of chocolate bars and high
sugar drinks. Don't really have time for regular lunch.
- Have a good sleep the night before. Very impt.
