Dr. Sophie Gerndt – USMLE Step 2 CK Experience – 244
I am so happy I got my score today, 244!
Here is my background:
Preparation time: Effective/real used time about 5 months, I started studying in April, that time I used MTB2 and I didn’t like it that much, I couldn’t finish it, then in May I started Uworld and studied for about 2 months and then I had a break of 3 months and started again in September-October for another 2.5-3 months.
Study material: MTB2 (1/3 or maybe less), Uworld subscription 2 times, Uworld notes. I didn’t do any NBMEs.
UWSA1: 247 (At 50% 2nd time of Uworld, 1 month before my exam)
UWSA2: 253 (At 100% 2nd time of Uworld, 1 week before)
Test date: December 10th, 2018
How I felt after my exam: The same as I did after I finished my Step 1: confused and uneasy, some questions I knew right away, some I had to do some thinking, some other I was like: What is this? I had no idea…
My time management was fine, sometimes I had time left to review some questions.
Try not to change your first answers when you’re not sure about something, trust your gut, sometimes your subconscious remembers stuff ?
Step 1 score: 240
I would recommend to stick only to uworld and its notes.
If you need help or want to ask something go ahead.
