Thumbs Up Gunner Training..... best memory tool for Step 1, including USMLE MCQs!

A review that I came across about Gunners Training and USMLE 1 prep...


GT is a solid, extremely efficient do it yourself memory aid with emphasis on recall of basic medical facts and relationships. They don't pretend to be anything they aren't. A full year cost me 100? 120 bucks? and the only time I wasted was when I took a break. I saw incredible results in retention and even learned a few completely new things when I went through their course. I've spent thousands of hours on that website and it's been the biggest single component of my medical education. I saw big gains in my GPA and ended up studying less, and wasting less time. They have nothing to hide, no extra bonus levels, everything you can access in the free 30 day trial is the exact same thing you end up buying. If you didn't like it in those 30 days, you're not going to like it six months later. There's no wasted money there.

GT is a study aid to help you study harder and better and they keep improving their cards. I've even caught them correcting errors in USMLE World.

I've read many good things about gunner training and I am definitely going to try it. At what point of studies do you guys recommend starting? right at the beginning or after the first read?

I used gt and it was excellent (scored 241/99). The best time to start is right at the beginning. After you do a topic, do the flashcards on that topic. Then just keep doing your cards every day. It's a long term memory tool, so if you have less than 3-6 months it's not going to be as helpful, but if you do it while you're doing your first read you'll be in really good shape.

Default I Recommend after 1st read

I would recommend to start it after the first read.... And as you go ahead doing MCQs the software tells you where you weak areas are and tests you more on those and recommends reading on those....
also the flash cards are very similar to first aid. So you review First aid while going over the flash cards. It has a calender which keeps a track of ur progress and provides real time feedback.

You can get the 1st month subscription for free here....

ye I agree with heights too....

I am doing it after the first read. But, while you are doing the first read it should work fine too. that way u incorporate GT and strengthen ur knowledge in the first read itself.

I think it's best after the first read, although if you feel you already have enough of a background you could do it right away. It will tell you which subjects you need to work more.

Default I recommend DURING the 1st read

Just to be clear, I do not think you should wait until after the 1st read. The program is very long and requires time. It took me 6 months to complete 97% of the program and I still didn't master everything. If you try to do even a few new flashcards per day, by the time you are done with your first read you will remember a lot of your first read and have an easier time with second read, FA or whatever your study plan is.
Again to emphasize: this is an excellent program, but you need to start as early as possible to get the best results.

Can you elaborate on how to integrate FA and GT? I just finished my first read of KLN. I was thinking about doing DIT before as it helps with FA, and now I am thinking of doing GT after I read your post. I plan to take the test in June. Your help is much appreciated.
