No wait, I meant if someone asked a recent IM board exam graduate to take the Step 2, would he/she/he find it easy?

Easy like, an NFL running back competing in the sprinting events at a ACC track and field championships, cruising down the straights, ala undergraduate medicine...

3 posts in and I still can't figure out what you're asking.

I mean, I understand the question you posed, but that can't actually be the question you want the answer to.

Or how the answer could possibly matter.

i.e. - is there a similarity in scope... and to your point its interesting for people who want to understand medical education, if that wasn't clear enough. Like theories of the unity of knowledge, the nature of scientific truth, and what suffices as scientific explanation, if that is something you're working on as an IM professional... Thanks again for implying I'm crazy, it must be a hobby of yours.., btw, I'm 47 years old, how old are you?

I'm just going to leave this here. Nobody but you implied anything.

Not really. But if you'd taken them both, you'd already know the answer.

Hence the confusion about what the question actually was.

I'm confused as to WHY you want to know this

Since nobody has ever taken the ABIM exam followed by Step 2CK, this question is more or less unanswerable.

Every test is easy when you study right and are smart enough.
