* Not being overconfident
  hellu_usmle - 09/05/18 16:29
  I have fewer and fewer days left for the real deal. I dont seem to find out how to study in these last few days/weeks. I am jumping randomly from topic to topic from system to system. At times I am looking at UW MCQ and at times MTB and jumping to FA, then suddenly CCS comes to mind and I do couple of cases. I dont have startegy like I had when I started. Like follow one system everywhere. Now its just random jumps. Is there any better way to deal with this anxiety attack? Do you guys have a strict plan or any strategy that helped you cram everything in the last days/weeks.

  Biostats is everyday thing. I am looking at it or doing questions or FA something is always happening regarding Biostats on a daily basis. From today I am doing MOA pharm and micro and immuno for those peds diseases specailly. (FA step 1).
Thanks jazz for this guidance !! I seriously didnt know how to approach the last few weeks.
Applications are all ready. I am ready to submit and have my heart broken cause I know getting into residency is not as simple as eating a cake. But "here I am" ----as that song goes.

  There's way too much Step 1 to review. Feels like this looks important, oh yeah that looks important as well. I guess I am done with step 1 review. Urgh !! This exam is way too much man !!

  CCS is practice is everyday thing. It is important to go over CCS atleast 1 hour each day. You wont believe how much it boosts up the score. A guy that I know failed 2 times and then the third time he gets full right side star on CCS and passes with with 240!!
So everyday do CCS.
I do qbank about 1 hour, listen lectures 1 hour, listen to Archer CCS 1 hour and do UW ccs 30minutes each and everyday. Stick to that routine and all topics can be covered in 6 weeks
