  hi all
first 2 blocks were very easy and nice straigt forword qs
3rd and 4th were really hard and very short i had to just put b or c for last 7 for each withouy reading it
cases were all ok but i think i did not finish a single one or discharge a single patiet , just did counseling , and time was out, so i hope they just give me score for one to one step and diagnosis.
cases were abuse, otites media, temporal artritis, mi, vaginitis, ..... i canot think of the others ut i will take a hot shower and set back to my pc ,
good luck to all of you
i really hope i pas and i dont have to study all that againe , please pray for me , cause when i look back for a second i donot think i have the confidence in passing , but God almighty has his ways , he does miracles that i am sure of , so if i helped one by mensioning what i got at my test ( as many of you helped me in the past) please pray for me
thanks and good luck all
if you have any questins , i will be back in few hours

  hi step32006
i am in the same shose , i donot know if iwill pass or not , actually it seem like we had the same cases, cause one was aortic stenosis , but i sent him to the surgent for surgery . and when i did that it ended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!but i counseled him , for diet, and meds complience ....etc.
you seem like you did great , and as heared in that forum it is not finishing the case it is scoring each step thriough the way ( i hope ) SO LETS PRAY THAT WE BOTH WILL DO FINE AND EVERYBODY ELS WILL DO TOO

  hi dr-nuri
crush step 2 is more then step 3 but it is very much the same ward to ward most of the times , even pictures are almost the same .
kaplan books , i started with it and when i got uw i found it waist of my time but to till the truth it was a slow ok start for me , againe cases in uw is more then enough , good luck and pray for me to pass, pleaseeeeeeee
