For anyone that's taken the test and used USMLEWorld, can you post your USMLEWorld %age and your score? I think a lot of people (including myself) would find it comforting, even if you are a smarty-pants and your scores are insanely high.

first pass througs usmleworld, 50 question timed blocks, all unused questions was around 63-65%
second pass through was more like 80%, but i only got a little ways through the second time.
step 2 was 234/95, or 235/94 i forget which.

Thanks for the info, Neil! I'm guessing your blocks were composed of random q's, right? I've been in the 60's so far as well, but i've been doing topic-specific q's, so that's kind of tough to compare.
Soooo wishing I could be in Prague right now!! :p

yeah, random, timed 50 q blocks. or actually 46q blocks. whatever step 2 has, i forget.

The supposed correlation between USMLEworld (UW) and Step 2-CK is as follows:
Step 2-CK = 2.3(UW average) + 84
I actually ran the data that students posted on this forum. To my surprise, the formula above actually tended to UNDER-estimate peoples' scores on average. From the data I had, the conversion factor is mroe along the lines of 2.44(UW) + 84. The difference might be more than you think!
