    Is this your first time doing world questions or second?? Are you doing them timed? was your NBME timed? It all matters alot...

    not trying to freak you out or anything, but i got a 430 on my nbme 2, 2 days before the actual exam, and 57% on world the first time through. i got a 79/193. i couldn't believe my eyes, some people had similar scores as myself, and they scored much higher. i got a lot of psych and obgyn, some strange psych btw. that's just where i ended up, but i'd hope you get a higher score, maybe i was just unlucky. i took mine this last summer.

    yea, just wish i pulled in a better score on step 2ck. many people with my "numbers" got 215-220. that's why i was so shocked, but i guess it doesn't matter much anymore. HOWEVER, lower board scores can still hurt you in the future. if you want to go on to competitive fellowships (GI, cards, heme/onc), they can still haunt you. oh well.

    90/222

    NMBE 2: 430/199
    UW Questions: 1st time/60% 2nd time/75% 3rd time/82%

    First time doing UW questions helped alot, read each question inside and out... second time around, I only did the ones I marked or got wrong... third time around, I was trying to see how fast I could complete the tests... So I used it to teach and time myself.

    Did Kaplan videos and read the internal medicine book twice, other books I skimmed the important topics, statistics 4 days before the exam, same with psych.

    As you can see by my NBME score, I wasn't expecting much, maybe a 200 at best.

    Good Luck.
    Thank goodness it's over!
