    Advertisements



    Hey there..
    I just need some advice as well as a vote of confidence in my situation..
    i took NBME 1 back early in Sept and scored a 450
    I took NBME 2 today and scored a 500
    My kaplan qbank ave is 70
    and now redoing kaplan ques...i'm getting upper 80s to 90s..
    and for the USMLE released ques set..for 2006 i scored about a 70.
    Do i stand a decent chance to score a decent score on step 1?
    any help and advice would be much appreciated...
    thanks!

    i think you'll hit high 80s or low 90s, depends on your residency choice if that's good or not.

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    Relax, watch a DVD. Any studing today will not really raise your score. If anything read the last pages of first aid (associations). you are taking it tommorrow right?
