First of all, thank my wife, without her help, I can not go through all of
She took care of me on almost everything, gave me the ride to school, bring
dinner plates to the table for me, get my drink for me, get my clothes ready
before I take a shower, iron and fold my clothes, pack my lunch box for me:
then my mother in law, father in law, and my Mom, thank for their great help
. I am glad I passed the test, the results exceed my expectation.
then, my friends here, thank you all!!!!!!
Now it is my experience.
From April. 2 to June 26, I mainly preparing my CS test, get a little bit
ready for my PHD dissertation defense. Reviewed kaplan CK notes and listened
to kaplan IM video once.
From June 26 to July 31, full time prepare my PHD dissertation defense.
On Aug. 6, I got the CS result and started a new job at other department.
Then I work full time and study for my CK.
From 08/06 to 09/30: I read Kaplan 2009 version CK notes first, listened to
OBGY, PEDS,PSYCH kaplan video.
from Aug. 16 to 09/30, finished Kaplan New CK Qbank, overall correct
persontile is only 50%.
Meanwhile, I also read "USMLE step 2 secrets" once.
From 10/01 to 10/31, I finished UW CK Qbank, overall only 60% correct
percentage. and I also review FA CK once.
My test is on Nov. 25.
I took NBME1 online 3 weeks before my test and only got 520(222),
I took NBME3 online 2 weeks before my test and only got 470,
I took NBME2 online 1 weeks before my test and only got 520(222),
I did USMLE CD CK questions(3 blocks) 3days,2days and 1 day before my test,
I only got 37,34,35 questions right. This is real bad!
From Nov. 1 to Nov. 25, I redo the UW CK qbank(PSHY, OBGY,PEDS,SURGERY parts
, did wrong question and marked questions),
I also redo all the wrong questions on IM.
That is my experience.
On my test day, the lady work there remembered me, I gave her some choclate,
she told me I gave her some choclate last time too when i took my step 1
test. She also told me there is one more restroom in the back for employee
and told me to let her know if I need that restroom cause this test center
only have one uni-sex bathroom for the public.
I took a break between every block, had some chocalate, bread, mountaindew.
On my last block, when I finished about 10 qeustions, I almost want to quit,
I wanted to go, did not care about this test anymore, but I still finished
all the block.
I only have around 1 minutes left on each block, I marked about 13 to 15
questions on each block.
I have to tell you guys I had quite a few really wiered pathology,
microbilogy, and biochemistry questions.
I felt the questions do not look like NBME, do not look like UW, the length
is very similar to UW or NBME.
lots of short and looks kinda easy questions, I just have no idea about the
I had nightmare every night since Nov. 25, finally, tonight I will sleep
I am not big cow in this forum, only 94, but I am happy.
God bless you all!
