    High Yield IM

    Aside cardio....in order of importance in my opinion are GIT > Heme/Onc > Neurology > Pulmonology.

    But also in my opinion once you have the concepts of what emergency medicine is and ideas of management when it comes to ABC's (Fluids, electrolytes, etc...) you tend to get the pattern of how most illnesses need to be approached emergency or not.

    But as the earlier post said....its all important. It all comes down to polishing up what you feel the weakest in. Utilize the performance bars on the online questions. And from my personal experience, what set you aside from others is not just what book(s) you read. Its how many questions did you do! Practice makes perfect. And the more errors you make, the more you learn and commit to memory, so low percentages are fine, as long as you learned.

    Good luck on the prep. I was taking mine August 20th, but postponed it to Sept 2nd. When is urs?

    hey

    wow ok i didnt even realize you replied, aren't i suppose to get some email or something anyways... I have not heard anything about them postponing the scores :S i hope not. I am applying for the 09 Match. And wow what luck do i have..i took my step 1 may 22nd and my results were postponed til july 16th. I hope this doesnt happen again. Im already expecting my cs score to be in by october.

    Im freaking out cuz I postponed my original Aug 20th to Sept 2nd and I havent even bought my ERAS token yet :S

    Have you taken any of the NBME's yet? And hows ur performance on UW? I totally need to see if im assessing myself correctly :S.

    Ok well hey hope to maybe keep in touch....email me or google chat or something at Dr.RafeZaidi at Gmail dot com if ud like. Good luck on your exam. Is it still August 20th?
