    I hope a 63% on USMLE CD and 65% on Qbank is good enough. Anyone experience success with those numbers? Any encouragement will help.

    I am gonna rip you apart, USMLE!
    I am pissed because I had to pay $450 to take this exam :mad: :mad: :mad: . I want my money back, and I will do that by killing the exam.

    Good luck to all.

    The word in the forums is that >60% Q bank should be at least passing on the actual test. Good luck.

    It's now or never! I have my step 1 tomorrow!!
    I'm feeling a lot better now than a couple of days ago. I took USMLE CD (150 questions) 2 weeks ago and scored 72% at the actual prometrics site. I thought it was really tough at the time. Without looking at the answers, I took the USMLE CD again and scored 84% yesterday!
    Bring it on!! :mad: Can't wait to be finished. <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    65% on QBANK should translate into above 225 on the boards.

    whisker barrel,
    that makes me feel a little more optimistic about my performance, because at the close of my qbank and all 2004 q's, i ended up with a 74% cummulative. i hope i get at least a 220 with all that molec. bio. and biostatistics crap that was hurled at me...

I'm still registered, and I appear to have the least amount of questions. This situation does seem to require some investigation; if you all are getting more questions then I am, I want 3/2,000X99 dollars= 15 cents promptly refunded to me.
