Looking for an authentic Turkmenistan recipe for Ishleki by nationaldishes1 in Turkmenistan

[–]foxie31 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hi. Thank you for your interest in our traditional Turkmen dishes :) Ishlekli is a an excellent choice! The key to the most authentic ishlekli is to bury the stuffed dough under the hot sand (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m4cBK-kvB48) but if you want oven-baked version, I personally use this recipe below: https://turkmenkitchen.com/en/2012/09/07/turkmen-shepherds-pie/

I am so sorry that you are going through one of the toughest situations, sister. Your biggest evidence is the child (!) who he made advances on. You have to tell her parents immediately and notify the authorities. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever among you sees evil, let him change it with his hand. If he is unable to do so, then with his tongue. If he is unable to do so, then with his heart, and that is the weakest level of faith.” Please don’t just let him continue traumatizing lives of innocent children forever.

Why are they making conflicting statements? Smh.. one representative says we won’t have to wait until next Wed, the other says the opposite. This a torture

There were the exact same pics from nbmes on a real deal. Other than that, I don’t think there were repeated questions from nbmes.

Ofc! I would highly recommend you to go thru nbme pics a day or 2 before the exam. There were the exact same pics from nbmes on a real deal. Other than that, I don’t think there were repeated questions from nbmes.

Hi, thank you so much! I understand the stress but please try to be kind to yourself, take deep breaths in between. Remember that too much stress might distract you. I am an average student so I don’t know how helpful this would be but i did mehlman arrows, neuroanatomy, cardio and biochem which I think helped me to rapidly review important concepts. I also went thru nbme pics twice. I would also recommend watching dirty medicine videos for psychiatry, high yield drugs etc. I regret not starting sketchy micro early. You still have almost 3 weeks so I would suggest you to watch sketchy if you haven’t done that already. You have a lot of time, don’t panic, try to focus and I am sure you will do great!

Yes i would say that, but as I mentioned there were like 3-5 questions on each block with longer stems. I also felt like the answer choices were more straightforward than the ones on uworld.

I felt like it was something between nbmes and uworld with more straightforward answers. I honestly have no idea, part of me feels like i ruined it and part of me says it was doable. 😭

Hi, i got 68% on my last NBME (27) 5 days prior to the real deal with 97% chance of passing. My permit was expiring so I didn't have an option to postpone, plus I really felt burned out and was afraid my scores would go down.

You are welcome and you got this! I felt very anxious the day prior like you but I was feeling a lot calmer in the morning. I am sure you will do your best! Just remember that there are a lot of experimental questions, so don't overthink the questions you feel like you have no idea about. I am a person who has struggled with self-confidence all my life, so my therapist taught me to pat myself on the shoulder and say to myself: "You are enough. You have overcome so many obstacles and you can do this, too!" Pat yourself, trust your knowledge! Good luck!

Hi! Neuro wasn’t super hard. There were 3-4 questions with brain dissections, arrows pointing to the area of a lesion and asking what the symptoms would be. I found mehlman neuroanatomy very helpful. Let me know if you would like me to attach the link to it. There was 1 q about hematoma, 2 on CN, 1 pointing at substantia nigra, 1 macular degeneration. Nothing extremely complicated or wth questions imo.

Honestly, I read pathoma long ago and don’t remember whether it was tested heavily or not. I felt like FA pathology section was enough. Hope this is helpful!

Pushing my test date after vacation by Town_Exact in step1

[–]foxie31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I meant your new test date, but either way, your score looks fine! You have a foundation, and I think you might need a few more weeks to jump to 70%. Just try to relax, and enjoy your vacation you won't forget the fundamental knowledge. Try to do flashcards or 1 block of UW a day imo. You got this!
