  I am very worried about this score as an IMG. My score report said that the mean was 233 with a SD of 22. This means that this score is below the mean! I have yet to sit step 1 (will do in latter half of 2012) and step 3. (did CS already) I know that I must ace the next two steps.... but does this score already place me at a great disadvantage....help :(

  Thanks for the reply!!! Are you sure thats a good score....I still feel depressed about it
With regards to step 2 cs...here's what helped me thru that exam smoothly:
1) First aid for the usmle step 2 cs
2) Practice typing up your cases using the template the USMLE website provides...that proved extremely important for me
3) Get someone to practice with and time it...just like they do in the exam; get someone preferably who is also going to write the exam
4) Time goes faster than a Boeing 747..lol...practice and more practice will help in this area

  For CK...I used USMLEworld and master the boards for step 2 ck
usmleworld is almost exactly like the actual exam
Kaplan qbank is to me close to very different from the exam in terms of what they actually test!
I would recommend those two resources to anyone

  .sorry for my ambiguity
what i meant to say was:
Kaplan qbank to me is somewhat similar to BUT very different from the exam in terms of what they actually test! I wouldn't recommend it. The USMLEworld is much much better
