The best way to score 99 is by choosing only two books or one audio with a book and learn them in/out/front and back. The only way to get into residency in this time of economic recession is not only by your own human ability, Is by prayer. Is time for Doctors to start praying harder cuz without prayer we can't achieve anything. you may score 99% in step 1 and 2, and best mark in step 2 cs and 99% in step 3 and still struggling to get into residency, but if you put God first, trust me things will be easier. i am a living testimony of what i just mentioned above. My step 1 was 81% with several attempt and step 2 75% one attempt and cs pass, got into community residency program that is super malignant(gained 30 pouds since i was crying everyday and my family was very unhappy especially my children) and lost the job last yr(2011) june, suffered alot with 4 children without income, even i had to fill for unemployment to feed my kids, however, during this trial period, I ran to church and handed myself and my family to God. As i write this note, on June 28th, 2012, i received an acceptance call from a University program for Internal Medicine PGY2 position(My husband had lost hope and kept on telling me every second you are at the church, but after i received second chance, he said to me"now i believed that God is in your case"). let me tell you, without God's intervention, we can't do anything. Even friends etc can only help you much, not because they don't want to help but because as a human being we are limited to what we can do, But God is unlimited. God has every resources. If God loves someone and wants that person to prosper, he can transfer a program director for your sake, by bringing another PD that will accept you. So Put all your trust in God, because he has the final say. I hope, I am able to help someone here. Good luck everyone. Just one day, God will put a big smile on all out mouth. Keep pushing and don't give up, no matter how long you have been trying. You will make it.
