I posted the following a couple days ago on the NBME thread, but I figured I'd just make a thread here because it's really F-ing my head up (and I think I was being ignored on the other thread ). Does anyone else feel like there's just no way to feel good about this test, or am I just flipping out over nothing? Ok let's see here, I gave myself about 10 weeks because I really need to make a solid score. My test is scheduled for the very end of July. Started working on 5/26 NBME1 at beginning of prep: 570/234 NMBE2 ~ 3wk in: 630/245 USMLE Rx (43% done): 71% Kaplan Qbank (10% done): 74% USMLE World (9% done): 68% About 6.5 weeks to go. I don't really know how to feel about all this. Obviously I'm happy to score well on the NBME exams at this stage, but I just can't gauge it beyond that. I constantly feel like I'm behind the milestones I had set for material review, and that I'm doing a good deal of guessing on most of these assessments. Sort of like I know 4/5 of what many questions require, but have to guess on that last little detail. Is it normal to feel so devoid of confidence even though the question bank and NBME scores are relatively good? I'm just having trouble shaking this feeling of impending doom, feeling that running into the wrong version of the test will be like walking into a buzz saw. Commiseration is more than welcome. Thanx.
