when you do, make the subjects cumulative as you go along.
ie. study biochem, do biochem questions.
then study physio, do physio and biochem questions.
then study pharm, do pharm, physio and biochem questions.
etc etc.

Default Go Through Everything FAST

The key is to go through Everything FAST and THREE TIMES.

Start GENERAL then move to specific later. What do I mean???

Read the entire First Aid as fast as you can 3 times.
Then read the entire Step Up to the USMLE 3 times as fast as you can.
Then read some Underground Clinical Vignettes 3 times as fast as you can.
Then you can do Q-Bank and read more specific subject-based texts.


This will prevent you from getting stuck.

If you have only read 60% patho and 30% whatever... you are sunk.

You need to read 100% of everything over, and over, and over - 3 times.

RETENTION of material does NOT come from trying to concentrate and memorize. RETENTION comes from REPETITION.


That's what I did to score in 99's (two digit score) on my boards.
