Hi,

Start with getting together your study materials. I would suggest the following:
- First Aid 2015 (an obvious must)
- Kaplan video series and lecture notes
- Pathoma video series and lecture notes OR Goljan lecture notes and audio
lectures

So I think the general consensus is to start with Kaplan notes along with the videos and after every subject or subtopic of a subject, review it in First Aid.

First aid needs to be known inside out by the end of your prep.

After you feel a little comfortable with the material(usually after a first read of kaplan and FA), start doing Qbanks

Helpful Qbanks include:
- Kaplan Qbank
- USMLE RX(covers first aid material)
- UWorld

I just started as well, and will probably follow this ZumZum study guide. ZumZum Method for USMLE Step 1 Preparation Schedule and Plan

GOOD LUCK!!

I have 2014 Edition PASS videos complete set and Lecture Notes. I purchased them and used them for my preparation for Step1. They can also be used for Step 2 preparation. They were very useful to me and can be very useful to you as well. I can honestly say I got a high score because of these videos. His teaching is unique and you will love it. I don't need them anymore so I am selling them. I paid a lot for them few months ago and I could use some money now for my expenses. You can have it for a fraction of what I paid for them. You can have it for $80 payable by paypal. You will be able to download it with in minutes after payment. Let me know if you are interested. Thank you. Goodluck
