I relied solely on UW+FA ....as i said i did kaplan only once......try to remember each and every word of FA and every concept of UW....BOTH PAY.....now U just complete ur UW and give NBME and see where u stand and see what r ur weak areas and strengthen them ...try to have firm grip on figures , pics , CTs , X-rays.....yeah ,sticking to FA is fine

I made UW notes on a separate copy , not on FA....I almost kept my FA clean...lol......while doing UW,I only made notes of things not given in FA...that was the reason why i did FA before doing UW....yeah , if u find it convenient,u can write UW notes on FA ....writing notes on separate copy has a point that u can review ur notes only if u dont want to review FA...U must do that thing which u think u will find convenient and better........at last urs is the decision that actually matters......best of luck

as i said earlier i relied basically on UW and FA....UW covers evrything ie.FA and kaplan as well......so go on doing UW and FA as many times as u can ....ONLY when u r done and satisfied with ur prep, give NBME.....and then see ur weak areas and strengthen them.....

abt time management i will only say -devote ur maximum time in step prep as much as u can....at least 10-12 hrs in the last 2 months ...hardwork done in last 2 months pays bcoz in less time we have many things in mind and then give step as early as possible once u achieve ur desired score in NBME.....

I have written my prep in bits and pieces in the above threads ...do read them if u want.......may be they help u ....best of luck ..!!!

yeah , relaxing for the past 21 days .....now time to move on .....!!!

i used to view first the explanation and if i found it interesting i used to write that ......otherwise i also sometimes made notes of only educational objective....this again depends solely on u what u find really helpful ...explanation or the educational objective.....I FOUND EXPLANATION MORE HELPFUL ......!!!

is BRS good for pathology,physiology,embryology?
and High Yield series,for which subjects do u recommend to use?
is Kapln enuff for Neuronanatomy or need to do High yyield?
how abt patho?i find goljan too vast for revison in the end of prep.i am looking for an alternate book for Patho for the quick review purpose and also to use it as a main book..what do u recommend?
thnks for the help

thanx a lot .....!!!
-according to me HY neuro is good only for images bcoz kaplan neuroanatomy covers almost all the things u need for step 1 + FA neuro portion is bestest....
-I studied BRS only for physio and behavior science so I cannot comment on BRS patho or embryo and i think goljan patho is sufficient ....
-BRS behavior science is good bt u need to do biostats and epidemiology from kaplan behavior science ( given best here+ listen to videos).....BRS physio is almost like kaplan physio bt contains few points more in each chapter than kaplan physio....i will say do it only if u have enough time....otherwise not THAT IMP......
-HY embryo is not important bcoz FA + UW covers all embryo u need for exam....
-GOLJAN PATHOLOGY IS BEST and IT HAS NO ALTERNATIVE....ALTHOUGH IT TAKES TIME BT IT MAKES U CAPABLE OF DOING MANY QUESTIONS bcoz IN ALMOST ALL QUESTIONS U WILL FIND PATHO STUFF INCLUDED.....
-Dont use any alternative to goljan bcoz since u have studied goljan , it would be better if u read same book 2nd time than to read a new book.doing a new book only increases ur burden , not ur knowledge...
-Goljan is not for only step 1...its for step 2 and 3 too.....listen to goljan audios as many times as u can bcoz Dr.goljan tells u evrything how to tackle a question and ways to increase ur performance , also the audios contains mostly HY information......u can make notes of audios too....I did......!!!!
BEST OF LUCK........!!!

thnx a lot....

-first of all , do UW wrong questions....focus on concepts tested...
-give UWSA 2 a week before exam and NBME 13 three days before exam..
-In between , review FA+UW for wrong questions.....u have 10 days only....dont try any new book .....stick to FA+UW only
-try to utilize all ur time .....12-14 hrs would be sufficient.....
-If u still have time , I recommend do all NBME's...bcoz I did almost all NBME's in the last 2 weeks......!!!
BEST OF LUCK FOR UR STEP.......!!

For behavior science i did -
1.BRS behavior science -full.....
2.kaplan behavior science-only epidemiology , biostats, physician-pt. relationship and medical ethics.......
3.listen to lectures of above said kaplan chapters
4.behavior science and biostats portion of FA+UW
after going thru exam , i found that FA+UW+point 2 and 3 should be must.....
I got a STAR in behavior science in my score report

For anatomy I did-
1.kaplan anatomy + videos
2.HY neuroanatomy
3.FA+UW portion
bt i think for neuroanatomy FA+UW is best and u can use HY neuro only to see images-my post exam experience
for gross anatomy kaplan is sufficient....FA+UW do not cover the whole anatomy...i had 2-3 questions of anatomy for which i was clueless....so kaplan anatomy is a must.......

Did you looked for the answer of NBME and UWSA? or you just did them and then kept working on your preparation?

as u know about NBME's they dont give right answers to wrong questions, so I did buy mostly extended feedback forms so that i can have a look at the wrong question and try to look for its right answer from KLN,UW or FA.....also I looked for my weak areas and tried to strengthen them .....

as far UWSA is concerned , its same as doing UW.....read the explanation and learn the concept......!!!!

I did all the NBME's and UWSA's in the last 2 weeks before the real exam....so I did study only those things which I got wrong in NBME's and UWSA's......!!!!
