I have taken consdirable time off from my own life, and I have up to 10 hours per day to prepare for the step 1.

Is this plan realistic?

February/March/April

Finish up Goljan Pathology (know it inside out, back to front)
Brush up on Physio (brs)
Brush up on Biochem (lippincot illustrated)
Scan CMMRS (especially end of chapter charts)

My WEAKEST areas:

Gross anatomy and Neuroscience: Read through HY for both. Perhaps Roadmap for Anatomy? not sure yet.

pharm + behavioal: going to rely on KAPLAN LN


ENTIRE MONTH OF MAY:

Do Kaplan Lecture notes + Videos (ALL, except Pathology)

JUNE/JULY:

UWORLD QUESTIONS/FIRST AID/PRACTICE EXAMS



END OF JULY:

Take the EXAM!

I think FA more the better but at least three or four times.
Kaplan video+ notes once
second just the notes

later, just doing Questions should help!! NBME UWORLD etc

One thing I think you are missing, that is... NBME Questions. No matter what, I think we should do that. They are very close to he exams.

you r absolutely right...one of my batchmates who has already started residency says that NBMEs r one of the most essential things & one must start giving online NBMEs asap so that our area of weakness could be defined...

can anyone shed more light on NBMEs? i mean which one to appear first & when r u guys planning NBMEs?

I'm planning to take the exam in september, and so far I've completed only Kaplan physiology, notes and videos and currently doing Golijan path.
I don't seem to remember what I studied in Physio. (started prep for Step 1 only mid march.)
Does anyone seem to have the same problem, and am I going too slow?

Recall seems to be a universal problem being faced by most of us (at least by me & my friends whom i know of). I think more important is to be persistent with your plan & try & do lots of questions which will outline your weak areas so that u can specifically know which areas are actually affected with this problem of recall.

Hi Halima... I am in a similar situation as your prep & I agree with you regarding revision, qbanks & nbme.

Thanks. I feel much better now!

Default nbme 1 to 6

guys,
hi i am in my first read of all the subjects, 2 subs left,
do u guys recommend solving all nbme forms, i planned to do 7, 11, 12 and 13 at the end of prep.

so is it advisable to do offline form 1 to 6 say every night 20 to 30 questions or are they really so outdated that its better to solve other offline qbanks like uworld or kaplan latest every night 20 questions?

i wanted to know if doing these 1 to 6 forms will be worthwhile to do during early prep before starting online qbanks.

thanks, happy studying everyone
