  hey guys

exam in 10 days
got a low score on nbme - 360
but gotta take the exam
now in the evaluation - i did well in medicie - above average - ok and had 6 stars in medicine
but obgyn,psych, surg was very poor - below average
peds was also on the lower side

now i am just finishing readin step 2 psych notes
i have made very detailed UW STEP 2 notes
topic wise in medicine - some 250 odd pages
what should i do for medicine
have only till monday evening for it
then last 6 days will revise - peds/surg/obgyn which i am weak in

should i try and read step 2 ck notes in medicine
or just read the step 2 uw notes
i had written almost everything --- then educ object + lotta concepts

cant do both
so which one should it be ??
if i slog
maybe i will be able to read all the uw notes
but not sure about step 2 ck for medicine as it is vast

uw 54
before which i read step 3 notes once

thanks a ton


peds/surg and obgyn i will read the step 2 ck notes

  Hey, I suggest you close the book on Medicine for now! Focus on Neonatology/Peds/Surg ( esp. Ortho), Psych Meds ( know the SE of all the major catagories) and of course, practice CCS.
GL.....try to relax and be confident!
You'll be fine.
