B4mee, i recommend to you First Read all Kaplan Qbook and watch the videos at the same time... after that buy FIRST AID BOOK ( The bible for everybody who want to take this exam )

Now These are Question Bank Sites, Go for Kaplan Qbank and then a MUST is USMLE World

UWSA = USMLE World Self-assessment ( there are 2 of those )

NBME is a website to take a "self assessment" form they are like 7 or 8 who can Closely predict your score to the real exam.. depends on which one you take there is a standard deviation of points from 2-10 points from the real exam. for more information read here About the official NBME Tests & Forms

USMLE RX is a Question bank from the same guys who made the First Aid Book...

There are a lot of ppl who already post their experience... I just tell you what i did... But do the search over the forums, you will see a lot of post regarding "The start"...

Everybody from this forum are kind and helpful... So don't hesitate to ask.. =)

Rulz.-

There are a lot of forms for NBME, actually what i found more closely to real note ( experiences from people who already took the exam ) are Form 7 - 3 - 6 - 11 - 12 ... Depends on the people... i cant tell u mine, i haven't take the exam...

Thanks a zillion Rulz. You've being very encouraging.
Someone who scored 97 & 95 in Step1&2CK told me he only had to study FA and UW. What do u think?
I already purchased FA2010 since the review had it FA2011 is not quite different.
Thanks again Rulz.

I have the 2011, its great, the 2010 still missing some parts.. So pretty much if you got the money go for the 2011...

Uworld is the best course ever... if you can take all from it and FA GREAT,, but be sure to take some NBME form before going for the exam,, it will tell you some weak areas... btw, check for some UWSA if you like to...
