    I was hoping I could get some advise from the community of peers..

    I have step 3 scheduled in 2 days! I'm debating on postponing it and paying the fine, so not to have a fail on my record..

    MY scores:
    UW Q's - 55% -- I've done it 1.5 times ..
    UW Self Assessment - 1 week ago -- 400, = 191
    I've done 90% off the CCS cases -- I believe I'm getting 80-90% right

    My dilemma.. I just took the NBME Step 3.. and bombed it.. I felt like the questions were easier, shorter and only a few per block that i was 50/50 on.. WTH?!

    I've had my scores ~10 points higher fro NBME's on the real exam in the past. I barely broke a 220 on this one.

    Advise?.. I have no idea what the h*ll happened...
    I want this test out of my life!! all advise is greatly appreciated.. 2 days left!!

    Advise is a verb, its something that I do to you. I advise you.
    Advice is a noun, its something i give. I will happily give you advice.

    Did you take it? How did it go?

    "I" is a personal pronoun. You should capitalize your "I" in "i give".

    I didn't realize my forum post, typed in a state of anxiety, was going to be proofread by a smart-a**.

    I apologize to any member who may have become ill due to my oversight.

    Thank you OveractiveBrain, but I would prefer to receive advice from a colleague who has more tact.

    I assume you correct your patients during history taking as well? You must be very popular.
