Planning My Step 1 Journal- Island Crazy

- Been reading this forum and contributing a bit for roughly two months. Now that my basic science portion of school is done I plan on be coming serious about my step one goals.

Predicated time to take step 1:March- May
Goal: 240

First topic is Embryology. I read through the four chapters in Kaplan Anatomy book for embryology and did all the videos.
However I have been mainly using the flashcards from Gunnertraining. Which is really nitpicking at the details.

According to Gunnertraining I have completed 75% of material from embryology but only know 40% of that material well.

I plan on spending the day finishing the other 25% and reviewing FA embryology section. I really want to practice some questions but I have no idea where to find embryology questions as I'm waiting until next month(or November) to buy a qbank.

Did you prefer HY Embryology over Kaplan LN for Embryology?
