Listening This is my study plan

Hello friends! I am new to this forum, so i will introduce myself to you all. I am an IMG and a very recent Graduate (Graduated on Dec 2011). I am planning to do Step One on May First week.

I am here to tell you my plan and my take on the USMLE. If it helps at least one soul, i will be more than happy

I am planning to apply for the 2013 match. I started to study for exam on Mid jan only and i am doing Kaplan Lecture Notes and First aid.

This is my plan...To do subject vise in Kaplan first. For example i started with Physio. Once i am done with the notes i will do the subject assessment on Physio and make my corrections with it and carry on with my next subject.

So i will do this till i finish all the subjects (except Behavioral science and genetics) in Kaplan and be done with all the subject assessment exams.

Then i will start the First Aid 2011 for step 1 and same way i will simultaneously do the First Aid Q&A (2nd edition) for step 1. And at the end of my study session. i will do one whole length exam and see where i stand and then i will carry on with my revision (focusing mainly on my weak areas) and Practice questions (new and repeating the old wrong questions)

Well guys this is the overall plan...

So far i have finished Physio in Kaplan, so as i finish each subject i will post some useful questions or discussion related to that subject to keep me and people who are interested in...well lets say, lets not waste our spare time...

I hope you guys find this interesting.

Thanks for your time
