    Need some help/advice

    Advertisements



    Hey guys!

    I have been studying for my CK for about 3 months now and things are just not going right. Lately on USMLEWORLD I have been averaging between 60-65% correct on unused random questions. I took the NBME form 4 today and got a score that is equivalent to 181. I was hoping I would def be passing by now.

    I have gone though all of the Kaplan lecture notes and have less then 600 questions left of usmleworld. Any help on what I should be doing to improve my score quickly? I was hoping to take this exam in less 2 weeks...

    Any help would be great. Thanks

    if you're still studying for the exam i would stick to uworld and maybe take a review course. the best review course is usml eagle in orlando. it actually puts kaplan to shame because at this course you're more than a someone writing a check. the people teaching there want everyone to score really high. i went there for step 2 and 3 and did really well. i then sent everyone i knew down to the course including my family cuz i believe in it that much.

    good luck studying

    Don't give up studying. a review course may help. Just try to do the best you can. I found that NBME's are pretty accurate. You need to build some confidence up for this exam

    I have a classmate (who's post you can see on the AUA forum) who was averaging less than you, and received a 183 on NBME 2 and 4. He came out with a 219/94. Try a UWSA. You might be more prepared than you think. I never took an NBME and only took the UWSA. Passed with a score 1 point higher than my assessment. I heard the self assessments are more predictable than NBME.
