  Thank God!!
Good bye USMLE,
Studied for around 6 weeks with a newborn.
Did MTB 2 and 3 once.
Uworld twice. Revised step 2 CK FA.
Do not remember the exact UWSA and NBME scores but they were not above 220.
CCS- Uworld, Mapping CCS from ebay, 50 star cases diagnoses someone put up on some forum.
I did not have time or patience for anything more, just wanted to be done.

Exam day 1- God only knows what I marked. Very vague questions and I guessed for a lot of them. Could get down to around 2 choices and then the trouble starts. Lot of stats and ads ( my weakest subject). Thank God for the reduction in number of questions, got some time for stats.

Exam day 2- Questions were easier and shorter. No stats or ads. CCS- Forgot to write the diagnoses of two cases, but patent did improved in all cases.

Do not underestimate, it exhausts you mentally and physically.
Towards the end of day 2, I was like Fck it, I just want to go home to my baby.

Good Luck !!

  I swear to God..I'm so glad I passed it..Took it when I had terrible morning sickness..Was taking unisom for morning sickness, which made me sleepy during the test..I had to splash water on my face to stay awake..Only God knows how I passed the test..But definitely relieved its done.

  Are we supposed to write the diagnosis ?? Are we scored for it?

  Management is more important than writing final diagnosis. My understanding it is not scored.
