Step 2 CK resources?


Hello! Do you recommend using First Aid to study for Step 2 CK? Are there any resources you'd recommend?

Also, how does the consultation request work?


Jan 30, 2018

Great question! I actually don't recommend First Aid for Step 2 CK, which surprises some of my students. I only used UWorld and the NBME Clinical Science self assessments, and I truly think those resources are sufficient for most students to reach their target scores. Sometimes, I assign select supplemental resources for particular topics, but there's no need to read FA for Step 2.


To schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation, go to the "Book Lessons" tab and select "Consultation", which will allow you to book a slot on my tutoring calendar. I look forward to speaking with you to assess if tutoring is right for you!


Happy studying,

    Respected sir/madam , I’m actually half done with my FA not yet started UW but with my current pace it will take around 6 months more honestly to finish FA+UW but I’m constantly getting anxious whenever I saw P/F going to happen from this January is there a way for me finish step 1 before P/F thing to achieve the score of 250? Or should I continue with my pace and have to wait for official news? I’m super confused I’ll be happy if you can help me to get out of this situation? thank you.

    I am a currently a third year who is finishing my second last rotation on June 14th, then I have a 2 week break followed by my obgyn core rotation until July 26. I have two weeks after my obgyn rotation when I have it off and I am taking my step 2 on aug 9th and level 2 on aug12th. I have been doing uworld during 3rd year here and there. I had a few questions regarding how to proceed further: 1) Would it be beneficial to create a test for all the wrong questions on uworld vs going through the flashcards on uworld which has their tables.  2) Should I do the second pass on uworld by resetting only after addressing the wrong questions first? 3) During my two week break, would it be a good strategy to a dedicate two full days for reading the step2ck book or watching OMED videos or DIT videos ? Is it best to use these resources when I get a question wrong instead of just reading them for the sake of completing it.

    Hi- I was wondering if you could advise on how to find reputable explanations to the new NBME tests. I have taken 18 and 20 and I am just making a google doc with information about questions I have missed. I have found some information on 18 but very little for form 20. Also just curious on your thoughts about a 243 score on UWORLD practice test #1. I am only about 30% through UWORLD questions and was just wondering if that was a trusted score. Thanks!
