I have been studying for Step 1 pretty tough but nothing to write home about for the past 6-7weeks. I average from 6-10 hours of study a day. I have read the Kaplan books (except for biochem and Path, Path BRS, High-yield Biochem, Micro Made Ridiculously Simple, High-yield Neuro, Fisrt Aid and completed maybe 200 questions and Q book. For the past couple of weeks, I have been hitting Qbank hard but I always seem to get three scores on it..., 54% 56%, or 58%. I am so tired of seeing those 3 scores after a 50 question block that I am forgetting that there are other percentage values in this world. I have completed 40% of Qbank but I can't seem to get over the hump. I hate to think I have reached a plateau since I have been working at this doctor thing in one form or another for the past 9 years. It seems like I know so much but I can't reach at least the 60s on those darn practice questions. I even took a full-length Kaplan practice exam a couple of weeks ago and got a 56% on that too. My family and friends keeps asking me when am I going to take the Step 1 exam but I am reluctant to tell them that I am not performing well enough on the practice exams to even feel confident in doing so. I just don't know what to do at this point.
