I disagree Easy Way to Do Step 1 Questions While you Eat, Workout, or Drive!

Hey fellow Step 1 test-takers--

I came across this awesome, free resource that offers an audio version of publicly available, official USMLE Step 1 practice questions.

I often felt guilty to take study breaks to eat, workout, or even drive a restaurant/gym, and this is definitely the best resource I've found that has made these times productive! It is also great to give your eyes a rest, and I've used this to study while winding down before I go to bed.

It can easily be played on your phone/ipad/laptop and is posted on SoundCloud at this link:
https://soundcloud.com/step-1-audioc...stions-block-1
https://soundcloud.com/step-1-audioc...stions-block-2

Give it a try--hope this helps you all too!!

Best of luck!

Questions are from the USMLE test-makers, publicly available here:
http://www.usmle.org/practice-materials/

The recorded ones actually have a few more questions that were included in practice materials from previous years

I think for pathology they have good audio reviews (goljan/pathoma?) I'm not sure if there is also a visual component associated with it though. In which case, there are lots of videos reviews from Kaplan, etc.

Not bad at all. But I actually prefer listening to Goljan's lectures while lifting weights (he's funny, keeps me listening to the lectures or else I would just focus on the gym instead of the lecture if he wasn't). And i watch Dr. Najeeb lectures while eating or when on the elliptical.

Although for someone who doesn't want to do only pathology it may be better to do these questions, but even then, I feel Goljan has so much integration of other subjects it really feels like a full review, haha.

I see your point, that could be useful to have more colorful commentary or delivery to keep interest. For me, I don't really use the standalone path resources, so having another way to listen to the questions would be useful especially if one of the qbanks.
