    Hey Rubicon,

    I had loads of neuro on my exam. Some were easy and some were a little more difficult, overall, not too bad. I had neuro questions of every type. Know your FA neuro cold. Also look thru HY neuro to be able to answer questions with pics. I had may be around 5-10 neuro questions with pics (brainstem slices, tumors, cranial nerves, etc). Hope that helps.

    how come every time I see most posters on these forums, people talk about how they get 95-99s

    and yet everyone also talks how hard it is to get a res out of IMG schools.

    With a 99%, doesn't that pretty much tell everyone that you're HELLA smart??

    Do all IMGs need a 99 or something?

    thanks

    Where can I find Goljan Audio and PDFs? What is the medical student's amnesia?

    • NBME 6 | April | 209
    • NBME 3 | May | 207
    • UW Avg: 52% (45% completed)
    • Actual USMLE | May 25 | 212/89



    Resources:

    • FA 2010: Read three or four times cover-to-cover and then focused on my weak areas.
    • Rapid Review Path: Read this once cover-to-cover over a 5 day span.
    • Goljan Audio: Listened to this once from beginning to end while reading along with a text transcript I had lying around. This took about 8 days, but could easily be done in 4 if he didn't tell so many jokes. I also listened to these when I was driving, and I would have listened to these while I exercised if I had exercised.
    • Goljan High Yield PDFs: I found these very useful in the week or so leading up to the exam. Great way to hit the important stuff quickly and keep it fresh.
    • Step 1 Recall - Buzzwords for the Boards: Listened to this occasionally, but probably wouldn't recommend it...especially while driving or operating heavy machinery...pretty dry stuff.
    • Medical Student's Amnesia: Found this little nugget buried deep in one of my USMLE files--very useful, concise, and high yield
    • USMLE World: Meh. A lot of people say to use this as a learning tool, but I just couldn't get into it. The questions were pretty frustrating, and I found myself getting too hung up on my score and trying to rush to the next question, and probably didn't get as much out of the explanations as I could have. Only finished about 45% of the questions. Probably the most beneficial thing about using UW is that it is the exact same format (visually) as the actual exam--I think this helped me feel more comfortable taking the actual exam. One interesting thing I discovered while doing UW questions was that my individual block scores were almost always better when I took them timed than when I took them in tutor mode. : dunno:

    Prometric Practice Exam 77% (234/99) [done month before exam]
    UWSA1: 520(224) [done 4 days before usmle]
    NBME 1: 218 [done a month before exam]
    USMLE: 212 (89).. Purdyyy pissed about it considering my score was suppose 2 be around the 220-240 range.. But oh well, i will just impress the docs during my clerkship in chicago.. I will look good when i get my real score in Step 2.

    I will admit tho that i should of done more nbme exam's lol

    Hi...does anyone know how far an IMG can go with a step1 score of 189/76? Pretty low, but is there even the slightest chance of a residency placement?

    Foreman MD, if you're not a complete tool and do your work in clinicals and not lazy in them, then you will do fine.
