Praise be to Allah lord of the worlds

Exam score: 269
Exam date : 3 / 15 / 2017

I’ve recently graduated from the Hashemite university in Jordan
I wrote my experience because I owe this group a lot and I hope everyone benefits from it.

I divided my study into 3 stages:

Stage 1

Mohammad Ghazzawi

First 3 months, I concentrated on understanding concepts without memorizing.
During this period I used first aid along with Kaplan biochem book and videos, Pathoma videos, Kaplan pharma videos for CNS, Autonomic system and CVS only, BRS for physiology, 100 cases by Cornard Fischer for ethics and lastly biostat and immunology Kaplan videos.

Stage 2

In the next 2 months I revised first aid once along with the important notes which I had taken from extra sources I used in stage 1, also I used biostat uworld qbank  which is very helpful

Stage 3

After that I started uworld online, I used to solve around one to one and a half block in a timed random mode and study it along with taking notes. This took around 2 months.
During solving ethics qs in uworld I noticed a lot of differences between uworld and 100 cases by Dr. Fischer, so I decided to read ethics from an updated book and I found ethics part in BRS behavioral science book serves this goal well. 

In the last month, I revised first aid with uworld notes twice before the exam
2 weeks before the exam I did UWSA 1 & 2 and got 273 and 271 respectively
I also solved NBME-13, 15, 16, 17, 18 offline and got around 7 to 8 mistakes in each
All qs ideas are covered in first aid and uworld … u have to sleep well the night before the exam because the exam is too long and exhausting

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask, just send me a message and I will reply asap.

Finally, I wish you all the best.
