Smile My step 1 preparation blog

hi everyone , I am new to the forum , after seeing the posts by everyone I have decided to start my study blog . I plan to give my step 1 after 6 months , and the first thing i want to do is to begin with my kaplan lecture notes .
my sequence of study will be anatomy , physiology , biochemistry . immunology and microbiology , pharmacology , pathology and lastly behavioral sciences .
I am not in a habit of studying with a study partner plus i have odd times to study , i can never follow a schedule but since its a kind of study that i have to follow the rules so i cannot take the risk to being myself atleast with this examination , I hope my journey stays smooth and i get what i want to achieve .

friends , i will be studying with my job because i am not in the favour of sitting idle at home and having long hours of naps but i hope this forum will let me stay focused with the actual target and not just my job which is secondary . Good day !

Wish you all the best. I will be joining the prep line come December. When do you plan on taking the exam?

My plan is similar to yours in terms of subjects.

Planning on using KLN, K-qbank, FA...DIT, Pathoma, Uworld (NBME & U-world for assessment )
