Took my exam this week and everything went well. I can't say the exam was tough or easy but it was okay. contrary to what you hear people brandish about, like it is basic common sense question and so on, no, no...heck no. The exam tests how much of the medical knowledge has become part of you rather than just how much stuff you have memorized. for somebody who never did internship in their home country not to talk of the US, some questions may be really tough. All in all, majority of the questions were IM, I had a lot of O&G and then peds and psych in that order. If there is anything that I think is most useful, it is taking step 3 as soon after step 2 as possible. By the way, I read Swansons, a little bit of Wash Man and Blueprint IM.
All the best to everybody.
