I’ve talked about that on Facebook and on other medical forums, but I’d forgotton to mention it here in my beloved blog! How shameful!

I’m dONE with Step ONE   5 comments

Finally, and after 8 months of full-time preparation, I took my USMLE Step 1 exam (on Wednesday). You can read about my exam experience here. I had a lot of crazy stuff going on, including:

  • Cockroach swarms in my hotel room, in the bathroom, on the bed, everywhere. Butlers aren’t really concerned, because “they are just tiny cockroaches”. Thankfully, I managed to change the room. But I’m not going to that hotel again!.
  • Taxi driver who bought the taxi for his brother-in-law to work on, but the latter won’t show up, because he has a prolonged “cold”. Of course the man had to pay the checks himself, implying “give me more money you son of a b****!”.
  • The chair in the testing center felt like a rocking chair, so I had to change it.

Anyway, I’m glad I’m done with this pretty annoying step, and looking forward to the more clinically-relevant exam, Step 2CK.
