My Step 1 plan (Exam on December)
I want to share my plan for the coming days till my exam date. I have been taking a long time to complete my first read and will hopefully be done by next week.
Exam date: haven't taken yet but plan to schedule it in the last week of December(21 or 28).
The second read:
- will start from September 23rd
- plan to finish in a month (by October 22nd)
- read First aid(first read) along with it
October 23rd onwards:
- subscribe Uworld for two months
- finish it in a month and plan to revise the weak areas
- take two USWAs in between, do offline NBMEs
- take an online NBME at the end
- start DIT(a month before exam) (try to finish it in two weeks though it's a 21 day course)
- do another NBME before one week from exam
- revise for a week
Ready for exam and take the Test(December 21 or 28)!
1. Is a month enough for second read of Kaplan LNs? I took a long time doing my first read, I annotated a lot from the videos and do remember some stuffs and some I don't.
2. Goljan RR took a month and a half, don't know how long will that take on a second read.
3. How many U world questions can one do maximum in a day?
4. Is two months of Uworld subscription enough? This will be the only qbank for my preparation. I will not do two whole months, am planning to squeeze DIT in those two months as mentioned above.
5. What is the best approach for DIT? How long will it take? Will there be spare time to read some FA in between?
6. Should I keep a week for revision after I do DIT?
I plan to do an NBME after DIT. I know that will let me know about my status. But since I have to schedule my date according to this plan, I am confused whether to keep a week after DIT or not. (this is the reason behind whether to schedule my date on December 22 or 28).
7. Where should I put Webpath, murmurs and radiology slides in my preparation schedule?
Please help me!
With many thanks in advance.
God bless us all!
