279 – Armando Hernandez – USMLE Step 2CK Experience
STEP 2 CK EXPERIENCE
Hi I’m a MD from Honduras. I decided to share my ck experience because this group helped me a lot during my ck prep, and I wanted to help others in return.
Duration: 5-6 mo. Dedicated, studied around 12 hrs per day.
Step 1: 267
I started using Step Up to Medicine and after reading the entire thing decided that I hated it. So, I decided to start uWorld and give MTB 3 a try. Hated MTB 3 and realized that I should just focus on uWorld. I did uWorld twice and then did the UWSA (1:272, 2:276), then I did all the CMS and the NBMEs (NBME 6: 271; NBME 7:256; NBME 8:256). I wasn’t satisfied with my NBME scores so decided to do uWorld 3. Uworld 3 helped me solidify concepts and train my educated guessing. It also helped me a lot with the abstract and epidemiology questions, which terrified me. Uworld step 3 1st pass: 81%. UWSA 1-2: 245. Glad to answer your questions!
