Iran Iranian High School Student Starting to read for USMLE

Hello,
I'm a high school student in Iran and i'm going to Medical school in the next year
and I'm really serious about USMLE. I want to start reading for it from the first year of Medical school! Would you mind giving me some advices about how to start it? (I've read some of basic sciences for Biology Olympiad in past years like Guyton's Physiology or Lehninger's Biochemistry, etc.)
Regards
Yaya

I suggest you start reading the "USMLE Specific Comprehensive Review Books" as you go through your curriculum.

For example when you start the Physiology Course you go to our Best Physiology Book For USMLE Step 1 Poll and you pick the best physiology book and start reading in it.

When you finish your basic medial sciences (first two years) you go and take USMLE Step 1.

There are two very useful study methods that I want you to read:

The Taus Method
and
TTUHSC Method

Default sorry dude!

as much as i know u cannot take steps while u r medical student in iran, u must wait until graduation and getting medical diploma after that u can start taking steps. it is because of some limitations just for iranian due to iran-usa relations!(while u start registering for ecfmg for usmle ,in the part u must give ur address putting iran address gives u error and u cannot proceed to next level)
the best thing u can do during ur studentship is that doing researches ,getting ur name in articles which can be published in pubmed,also getting connections via ur researches with american universities,ur researches must be related to ur feature residency that u like to go.
