Hi,
I am also an IMG and have just started my preparation for step 1 and i am planning to give step 1 in september of october 2015 ...

i was wondering how long have you been preparing for step 1 and from what books....and how did you deal with memory lapses ( i mean it must have been tough to study after 5 years of graduation)


All the best for ur exam...
