congrats on passing, if you wish to take the other part to get a good grade, but my understanding is that based on point systems, you get 0 for less than 85, 85-89 is .5, 90-94 1.0 and 95+ 1.5, so it depends on your goals, but either way congrats on passing, when did you do the test?

Hi there,
Congratulations looking at the passing rates it is creditable to have scored a 81. Since you took the exam recently I think I could ask you a question- what study material did you use?? And how long you took to prepare for your exams.
I am doing MPH and preparation for NBDE along with the curse work looks impossible. I finished reading the decks and Kaplan notes for Just 2 subjects, I started 3rd one recently. I really don't understand when and how long to prepare for the remaining 4 subject?
Thank you.
