If you are feeling this way about paper L then I would suggest you are NOT ready for the exam. The actual exam is 2X worse than paper L.
Any topic that is making you go :eek: means you have not studied it well. I suggest you move your date and study well before attempting.:thumbup:

+1, Glad to know I'm not alone.

Some questions are like :eek: huh?

They are both really good. I did crack NBDE 2 wks before my exam and examaster I did along w/ my preparation. I actually scored 2 pts higher than I did on crack nbde but examster is TOUGH because I used to get scores in the 60's so that woudl scare me. Its all about how well you want to be prepared at the end.

hey
the ans for 202 is C (Only C is essential a.a.. thats how i got it right! PVT TIM HALL) hope this help.
I think C is correct not because they're essential AA but because they're the only hydrophobic AA's listed. The interior of all globular proteins is hydrophobic, with their exteriors being hydrophilic.
