    Forgot one more thing....is anyone totally clear on the format of part 2? The way I understand it is....the first day, it's just 400 random Q's from all different subjectst, thrown in together? Then the second day is JUST case studies?

    Damn, no partial failures allowed....... :(

      You're right about the format. The first day is 400 questions from randam sections (i.e. pharm, perio, endo, etc.). It goes from 8:30 to 4 P.M. The second day is only a half day. Its 100 case-based questions.

      I was looking at the question breakdown for the part 2 exam. There's 30 endo, 45 operative, about 35 pharm, about 55 ortho/pedo, about 50 behavioral science, 45 perio, 45 prostho, 45 oral path questions.

      Good luck studying guys.

        So it's not like the old tests where you have an operative section, an endo section etc., just 400 all mixed up? One question could be pros and the very next could be ortho? 200 before lunch and 200 after lunch?

          is it just me or are most people studying about 1/5 of what they did for part 1? perhaps it is a motivational thing and people are not concerned that these scores will impact PG program acceptance. i am going through the decks once and spending fri/sat/sun going through old tests.....this seems about par for my class.

            You're right in saying they are all mixed up. There are no sections like part 1, so there's no such thing as a partial failure. From what I understand, you get a booklet in the morning with 200 questions and a new booklet in the afternoon with 200 questions.
