Question Rotations before step 1

Hey everyone, I am posting this in the step 2 section because many of u guys are in rotations.. im wondering if it is a good idea to start rotations before passing ur step 1? maybe study and rotate at the same time?

Terrible idea.

Step 1 is sort of a "stepping stone/certification" which confirms that you've mastered what's required to get into clinical aspect of things. IMO, Step 1 before rotation is a must!
