Most of the exam will be covered with concepts you develop from above books and qbanks. The only issue most people have is that real exam questions are a bit lengthy and your mind gets fatigued during the 9 hour exam time. The only really tough questions you get are from ethics and psych which isn’t covered that well in UW ck qbank. Frankly, I just answered most from common sense but I think I got a bunch of them wrong as my weakest area on graph was psych. Alot of people use Tiki Taka but I looked at it and I thought it was useless(no offense to anyone that does use it, I just didn’t think it was worth the time). UW algorithms are vitally important. The best thing you can do for this exam is do UW really well and understand all concepts that it is trying to teach you. CK is not a fact based exam like step 1, it’s mostly conceptual. Everyone says it and Ill say it too, get enough sleep before the exam. Also be sure to pace yourself during the exam don’t spend too much time on any one question. Often times people spend too much on one question and then miss out on other easy questions. Please Post any questions you have below I dont know what else you guys wanna know.
