    To those who have taken Part 1 in the new format (since Feb. 07);
    did you find questions in the test from previous examinations?

    If so, would you say they are a significant amount of previously asked material or only a few?

    Do these repeated questions tend to be from exams in say the last 4 or 5 years or are older questions repeated?

    I'm trying to gauge the importance of going through the old papers and I don't know if the new format has changed in terms of content.

    I've been told that the old format would often include many previously asked questions (sometimes the exact same question).

    If anyone with experience on this could comment, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I took my part I yesterday , and let me tell you something, there were many many repeats, either the whole Q even the order of the choices were the same, or they'd changed it a lil bit but either way, it sure makes a big diff if you go through the released stuff from ASDA, What a pity I just did only some years and only once, but even like that, it was definitely helpful.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to this question.

    Your information is very, very valuable and I will certainly put it to good use.

    What other materials did you use to prepare? How long did you study and finally, how well do you feel you did on the test?

    I did mostly the 2006-07 decks after going through the Kaplan review book once, but that was it. No more Kaplan review. Decks are enough I guess if you know every word. And the released exams. Some USMLE first aid (First part ), Wikipedia, and some useful websites for Biochemistry and Physiology. Google is a powerful tool to find study materials.

    Still waiting for my score report. Don't have a clue about what you asked, but after receiving it, I can definitely let you know.
