I was sad to shell out the money, but kaplan's QBank seems to have saved the day again for me. Intrestingly, I thought the Qbank was less nit-picky this time than it was for Step 1. There were a number of questions that I swore could have been taken verbatim from the test.

prior to QBank, I gave a good once through reading of the Blueprints series.

I also had First-Aid, though I don't think it was quite has helpful for this test as for Step 1.

Also, there was a good 5% or so of questions that I would never have known regardless of what I used or how long I studied - just be prepared for those.

And once again, the NBME self-assessment is pretty dead-on accurate semblance of the exam, if you've got an extra 45 bucks to spend.

we get kaplan with school (we pay for it but like we have to and it's discounted...) so i have the books and qbank that i just used for peds (which was the second worst shelf ever! surgery being the first... because i thought both had tons of questions that came out of nowhereland)

anywho, thanks a bunch and congrats :) enjoy some r&r!
