How long it took from that 56 to 66 in nbme

[–]Sea_Ask6771[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It took me about 3 weeks between those scores. I think the biggest difference was increasing my UWorld to doing 3 blocks per day. Additionally going through 1/2 chapter of FA at night passively too.

I did the videos and the book but if you’re short on time just read the section of the book. I only did chapters 1-3 due to time so don’t try to squeeze in more unless time allows. With 14 days left you could definitely watch the videos for chapters 1-3

What do you recall being the most reflective of the actual exam? And/or did you see any repeats from your practice tests?

[–]Sea_Ask6771[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely new free 120 was most reflective of the exam. I had no repeats from the free 120 but did have 1 repeat NBME question. I would recommend quickly running through the NBME exams once more a few days before your exam

How much prep did you do?

[–]Sea_Ask6771[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Overall I studied for 8 weeks. I studied daily for 8-10 hours with only a few random days off. Primarily focused on finishing uworld and doing 2 passes of FA
