How about you try and score as high as you can possibly score given the amount of time you have to study? If you try to target a score 10 points higher than your step 1 you might end up accidentally scoring 10 points lower.I scored low 220 on the step1. What is a good score to target to show them I can do well on the step exam? Someone told me it is typical to score +/- 10pts, and they won't care about it. So look to score around 240?
