    Going for the 2009 match!

    For Step 2 I did USMLEWORLD questions. I scored quite well (62%), but I did an NBME and surprisingly scored poorly (barely passed NBME 2). I guess I'm not a very good test taker. Also read Secrets twice. Didn't use FA or kaplan.

    I think UW is the best source there is. Kaplan has an updated qbank for Step 2 which I've heard is much, much better than the previous version. I actually "won" a 3 month subscription to the Step 2 qbank, but didn't use it, since I was concentrating on UW. So maybe you can try kaplan as an alternative source. I have also heard that Step up to Medicine is a great book for Internal Medicine.

    Good Luck.
