USMLE Step 2 CK – 255 Experience
Well, i took step 1 a few years ago and if possible, i d advice to take step 2 ck after 6-9 months or less… Many genetic dx, biostats, etc are present in both exams…
I started prep in august, working 3x/week + gym + partying! I kept living and doing my stuff, started with MTB 2 and UW from the beggining. Almost didint use any other source, but did UW taking notes and paying a lot of attention. Didnt take any NBME, only UWSA 7 days before = 261. Finished UW with 71%
Test day : VERY long and hard questions, vague questions, testing concepts, not just memorizing studd, you have to know the concept and they will twist and ask you something. I felt really bad leaving the prometric center, marked 10+ questions per block, didnt have time to calculate some biostats questions! Tooooo long!
After 4 weeks I was chilling with my girlfriend and received the email! Tcharam! 255!! I was hoping 260, but thats ok!
Guys, RELAX, be confident, if you dont have much time, do the best with what you have! Dont forget your family but know when to say NO to something. I kept exercising, eating good, going out with friends and studying hard when at home! Some ppl may say you should be locked in your room for 6 months, well every person is different, if you want 270+ maybe thats necessary, but relax, life is so good, and you can achieve success on the exam without being a robot, ok? Good luck, god (independent which one you believe) bless you all!!!
