Planning My advice after taking step one serveral times to pass

Hi, After studying for both Step 1 and CK
Step one is by far the hardest one of all.

I found out that successful way to study for step one will also work for your Step 2 and 3.

Here's a summary:

1. Kaplan review materials
2. Q banks (Kaplan, USMLE World, USMLE RX) getting higher than 70% cumulative average
3. Good NBME scores ( 500 and better )
4. Doing the free 138 question practice test form the USMLE site. and getting 70% or better.

A few others but with this as core you will do well.
