    For those of you who have taken the path shelf exam, is the
    comprehensive exam at the end of the grid book similar to it at all?
    If someone were to get 70% of the questions correct in the path grid
    book's comprehensive exam, does that bode well or is it low?

    If you are referring to BRS path............those questions are NOTHING like the USMLE. they use a format not even used anymore. all of the following EXCEPT: make up most of the questions.

    They are simply good for recall and review of what you just read.

    do NOT think that is the way the USMLE or shelf is written.

    this is assuming we are talking about BRS path book......i've never heard of the "grid" book.

    later
