Score 88/212. Quite happy that I have this in hand for the interviews. :-smiley7

Total study time 2 months, full time on weekendss and 3 hours daily.

Assessment exams : 460 on NBME two weeks before exam.

Qbanks : UW, Kaplan qbook and qbank - average 68.

CCS : Dr.Red's CCS workshop and UW, First aid CCS. Red's is a great course, my ccs turned out to be very high on the score report.

Theory materials : Kaplan step 2ck ( beginning) , then Dr.Red theory video lectures and then did First aid in the last one week.

Dr.Red course, Kaplan qbank, UW and First aid for last minute cramming are more than enough to finish this exam comfortably. just do these thoroughly.

Best of luck. If you need any suggestions, let me know.:fireworks:

Please note that 88 IS NOT A PERCENTAGE/PERCENTILE!!! It is a two digit score only.

Your two digit score is not the percent. It is a correlation to be able to compare the three digit scores throughout various iterations of the USMLE. This is why a 229 might have been a 92 last year, and it's a 99 this year.
