Listening Step 1 - October in Chicago

Hi there!

I am an IMG and planning to take Step 1 in Oct this year. I'm on the process of applying and picking out good dates. I will start to gather study materials after I finish my job this March and then start reviewing by June and hope to be in Chicago by May. For those who are taking the Step 1 this Oct, feel free to reply to this thread and encourage one another in this journey.

Best of luck to all of us!

Well the actual live lectures start May 18th and run for 16 weeks. There are two months of centre prep before (pre-lectures). It costs around $10000....all depends on the package you sign up for. The courses are given at Kaplan Test Prep in Chicago.
I think most people have the 2010 videos and just use those along with the lecture notes to cut costs but I'm having trouble studying on my own and I need to do a thorough review of the step 1 material.

Thanks for that information. I am also trying to get hold of the videos. The full price of the course is just way too big for me and I have decided to make a good timeline about reviewing on my own. But I'm still hoping I could get into some intensive courses after I've done my review, maybe a month before the exams.

Best of luck to us!
