Done with USMLE Step 1.
Preparation Time : (5 months). Already did CK.
Study Material :
- Kaplan for Biochemistry
- Uworld + First aid
- Pathoma for General Pathology only
Short Story :
Did Biochemistry Kaplan in a month. Then I purchased Uworld. Did only 1 round of Uworld (86%) in approximately 3 months and Then revised only Uworld flashcards I made during preparation.
NBME 13:222 (3 MONTHS BEFORE EXAM)
NBME 15: 226
UWSA1:271 (1.5 MONTHS BEFORE EXAM)
UWSA2:251 (2 WEEKS BEFORE EXAM )
The EXAM WAS MORE LIKE FREE 120 STYLE.
Lots of Ethics (15-20 questions) plus 10-12 (Biostat).
General Pharma was all about Graphs.
Pathology Section was quite easy.
Biochemistry was 70% and 30% WTF type.
I made a lot of easy mistakes maybe it is because of the pressure of the exam.
The exam was Pictorial based. Sometimes no scenario just like an accident with the image of autopsy and question. So be prepared for such things.
But happy with what I got.
