The topics and question style in UWorld mirrored the content of my exam very closely, and the questions' clear, detailed explanations helped immensely. I would like to share my joy about my score report in Step 2 CK. I got a 264/99 in my exam and it took a lot of hard work, but I couldn't have done it without UWorld.What is your uWorld average for your first pass?
Currently I have a 67% UWorld average for my first pass (finished surgery, psych, and a fair amount of IM, haven't touched peds/OBGYN). My step 1 score was 246 and I'm aiming for a 255+ on step 2 CK. 67% UWorld average puts me in the 55th percentile which has me very worried...How do I get better at uWorld?
Sit down. Do your UWorld block. Review your missed/marked/guessed/whatever. Learn from your mistakes. Do not repeat those mistakes. It will all be okay.Why use uWorld for the USMLE?
Our goal is not only to prepare you for the USMLE, but also to help you become a better clinician. I started out using another question bank in addition to UWorld but quickly abandoned it when it became apparent that UWorld was vastly superior, particularly in terms of vignette content and topics covered.
