i made the mistake of neglecting pathology till the end of my preparation i just did decks and papers for that...but if you have time go through kaplan as it will help u a lot...from lippincotts i did small topics which i found difficult....the rest of it i did from Kaplan Biochem lecture notes

Thanx for such a quick response.I have one doubt- do they concentrate on systemic pathology much or shud we be firm with the basic general pathology?

Congrats to everyone who has passed their exam! An upperclassmen told me he heard that with the new computerized version of part 1, there aren't any pictures as questions on the exam (like ithose arrow pictueres in Dental Anat).
Can anyone who has taken the test recently confirm/deny this please, thank you!!

Like many of us, I am waiting for my results as well. I might agree that my statement was "stupid" but I would not say that it was an unethical act. That's a little extreme, don't you think?

Relax, humor is fun!

hi...these "raw scores" you speak of...are they the number of questions you got right, or are they actually the scaled score? because i thought one needed a 75+ scaled score on each section to pass the exam?...sorry if i sound ignorant. just a bit confused with the scoring of this exam.

u needed 75+ in each section to pass the exam..this was prior to january 2007...since then you are just assessed on ur composite score....however the score report also gives details about the no of correct responses you had on each section but that is just for ur information...those scores are not ur percentile....in short if u get a 75+ on ur overall score u pass the exam..hope this helps...
