I know it's been talked about before. The explanations are so good, but the questions are hard.
Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy!
I started getting 70's on this thing, and now I'm down to 40's.
What is that supposed to mean?
Some of these diagrams in the explanations are drawn in crayon... ya, CRAYON!
Why is there so much stuff in USMLEWORLD that's not in First Aid, or Rapid Review... OR KAPLAN????
I doubt this bank is any good. A lot of people think it's the best but you wont see any of that stuff on the real exam. There's a $hitload of low yield material I've never heard of or seen and I've been through FA and the Kaplan books 12 or more times each. Pardon my French..
Im starting to think this 'doctor thing' is a complete waste of time and money. If I get any lower than the score I want I'm quitting. I can't imagine another, what, 7 more years of tests like this?? at least.
oK,OK now take a deep breath and relax, dont worry everything will be ok
Its totally normal to feel very frustated when you do this questions call UW, try to read the answers and understand the concepts.
When you say " Im starting to think this 'doctor thing' is a complete waste of time and money."
I did not understood if you ment the UW or the MD part? but either way, you will do fine on your test if you keep focus.
Also remember that they test different concepts.
I also laugh ALOT when I saw the picture in crayon, and they mispell hepatic with eratic
good luck on the test
I would recommend users to practice Qs once they have completed the first reading of Step1 notes from different sources.
If your performance is constantly in lower 50s, then you will have to work-hard to understand the concepts (go through the Qs & explanations again and do the second reading of your notes) to ace the exam.
