It is similar in format to Step I, but is more clinically oriented, i. The exam consists of eight blocks, which is one section longer than the seven blocks of Step I. Although less important than the Step I, a strong Step II CK score can only help your residency application, as programs will see your score regardless of when you take the exam. Due to the more clinical nature of the exam, most students improve on their prior Step I score.
Some students prefer to take the test right after third year because they feel well prepared coming off of their final shelf exam.
Additionally, they feel that taking the exam early and scoring well is a great way to strengthen their residency application, especially if they may have been disappointed with their Step I score. There are usually 2 weeks between 3rd and 4th year that students can use to study. If you decide to take it later, programs can invite you for an interview without a Step II score. However, you will need to take the exam before they can rank you.
Some people recommend taking it later if you are happy with your Step I score, but in the end the decision should come down to the amount of time you need to study. Second, your shelf exam scores will give you a good idea of how you might expect to do on Step 2. Third, taking Step 2 in December is not always the best option.
Crush Step II , however, is a frequently used resource for Step II CK preparation, and is favored by those that prefer a text-based approach to test preparation. DO NOT read lengthy subject-specific books. Some students only do UWorld questions and fit all of them into a two-week period.
Check out some online resources below. Some people will do blocks throughout 3rd year to study for shelf exams and then repeat the questions before taking Step II. Others wait to purchase the Q-bank when they begin studying for Step II. Either way, getting through all of the questions at least once is definitely enough.
Overall, study time usually ranges from weeks with most students taking weeks. Students who take the exam during a vacation will often need less time since they have more time each day to study. Students who take the exam while on rotation might need to start studying earlier given that they have less free time during the day.
The daily study schedule is constructed similarly to a Step I schedule. If you do this, you should be in great shape. If you want more practice you can purchase a practice test along with the qbank.
