    If you just want to pass then FA and UW should help you do it.

    You gave us almost zero information to help you. If you know NOTHING, then UWorld and FA will not help, you probably need to crack a textbook.

    OTOH, if you are in medical school, have passed your exams, and have a good plan of how to use FA and UWorld to orient your knowledge towards the test, it should be enough to pass.

    there's no good data on this but, anecdotally, people who score around the average score for UW for a given block of questions (usually 50-60%) can expect a 200-220 on boards.

    if you are not sure where you stand.. give an nbme.. and then start from there..

    thats what I day.. and lets just say that I started out on the lower end..

    ppl on this board are very helpful and they will guide you..

    oh laxman.. btw.. my score on uworld has now come up to around 45%...

    thanks...
