  I finally got my result today- passed 216/89..I have benefited enormously from this forum. Thanks for all your support. My exam experience- I thought my mcqs on first day was fairly o.k.. 2nd day- I messed up 5 of my ccs cases..So I think mcqs are the most important factor in this exam..does not mean that you can ignore the ccs..
My exam preparation- UW-62%, nbme-510, kaplan-65%..did UW ccs only once...I guess I relied a lot on my step2 ck knowledge..and I had to study after I came back from work- late in the evening...
Please work really hard, use this forum to discuss willeventually pay off.. GL to all especially spins..

  Hi anila_indian- my study materials were as follows-
UW mcq, ccs. later read the notes I made from UW., crush step3- read almost twice, Kaplan mcq Q bank, Kaplan Q book, and finally usmlestep123 ccs ( very useful). I had to bank on my step2 knowledge as well...becoz I was working regulary. Most of my studies was late in the evenings and weekends.. It was not easy. But hard work will eventually, surely pay off.. GL
Hi tiger07
