In about 2 weeks, 2/3 of my class has to spend the day taking this exam, which is apparently for the NBOME to test new questions/question types for Step 2. (think mini-step 2)

I haven't heard any rumblings on here as of yet. Are any other MS3s being subjected to this?

We were told that it doesn't count for anything, but then they told us that our scores are being recorded *by name* and reported to the school! :mad:

So, I'm assuming at this point from the rush of responses that my class is the only one being subjected to this. *sigh*

Dr. Mom:

Please keep us informed on the pain level with the exam. I'm still waiting to find out the option on when/where when we take the COMLEXII.

I saw postings at OU-COM a few weeks ago advertising this and seeking volunteers for the "pilot run." I don't know if anyone volunteered for it (I'm a lowly first-year so I couldn't participate).

Hmmm. We didn't get to volunteer.

Took the test today & I didn't think it was too bad. Mostly cases with questions dealing with diagnosis & treatment (ie: what's the most appropriate first test to order for this patient). There were a few *typical* COMLEX questions, but I felt that this was a little better written than step 1.

BTW: they officially called this thing the COMAT pilot study.
