usmleworld NBME Kaplan score correlation

Postby anatolyk » Mon Nov 20, 2006 5:04 pm

It would be interesting to find out what scores/percentages people got while preparing for the Step 3 and what was the actual Step 3 score.

I know almost everybody uses USMLEWorld. Some people do the NBME self assessment tes, some do Kaplan.

So, please share your experience and help others!

The applicantguide team have developed a table showing NBME, USMLE WORLD (UW) and Kaplan Qbank to USMLE step 1, 2 and 3 score correlation in 2-digit and 3-digit forms

Can you please share some details - how many samples of each score type have you used while compiling the score correlation table? How were the samples distributed across the scale?

dear Anatolyk
Thank you so much for ur advice throughout this forum, Iam an IMG with step 1 228, ck-216, cs pass all in first attempt but has step 3 one fail attempt.
Iam trying for the second attempt this time, but when i took NBME i only got 300!!!. so i donot want to take a chance this time too.

i find the step 3 questions very tricky , even i feel knw the answers to the big questions when i read thru the questions , at the end they will ask a whole different question - like management of a complication of a drug etc.

i am in the last stage of Kaplan now , average score 50 -55%. took UW last time but didnot finish it.

Do you think getting a different online qbank like USMLE preview is a good idea?

please advice me. and i believe i will concerntrate on step 3 before applying for residency , becuase i need visa sponsor.
but i am becoming more than 5 years after this.

thank you

QBank and UW are the two tests I am aware of. I am sure there are plenty of others, but these two have earned a solid reputation.

There are so many questions, so doing them all over again might be not a bad idea.

For step 3 i used Q-bank, USMLE world and Boards and Words. It's important to study carefully all the cases ,i could learn and keep notes even from the case presentation, try not to focus only on the wright answer, becasue you have to deal with DDx. I considered one case not one but as many as all the options for the answer. These have huge information, try to get the details. Do cases with timing. And you will do great as i did. Blessings!
