Planning My Pathway, Step 1 to Residency

Hi all here

After I did gather many info from here and everywhere. I decided to start my path to residency and here I will post my experience with you step by step.

So I am aiming to take exam at may 2011 so that gives me 7 month..

I will divide it in 4 month studying + 3months reviewing and practicing.

Am not saying that this is my strict timetable, it is flexible I can change it any time if I see that it has to be changed

So for October I will start with anatomy + biochemistry and will keep you guys updated in my mission

second thing

now i divide my schedule into 2 division

Mastering:with books like high yield ,brs,nms,lipincott and lange series for 4months
Reviewing:with books like kaplan FA usmleworld and any online questions for 3months

the total is 7 month and starting from October i should be finish in April and thats i decide to enter the exam in May

You should register for the exam as early as possible just to make sure you don't get any delays, although actually it doesn't take a lot of time to process your application. In my case, it took a week for my papers to reach ECFMG, and a week for them to approve my application. So that's a total of 2 weeks. I also registered pretty late; just 3 months before my exam.

If you feel nervous now, you can delay registration for a few months, say 3 months, when you have read some stuff and feel more confident.

About the plan, it's good, although don't try to push yourself so much with many books. Choose one source for each subject + FA. Nothing more. For me, I did Kaplan notes/videos + FA + UW (may be I'll do Kaplan Qbank as well). The last few months should only be qbanks + FA.

P.S. I'm from Egypt also; feel free to PM me if you need any specific help.

thanks for your reply
about the registeration i think am going to make it two month later when i did do some real studying

can you give me a link that guide me on how to register for the ecfmg and then usmle step by step


abt the plan yours is good but for me it is an opportunity to study real medicine so why i dont get advantage of it
so thats why i want to study from refrences such as lipincott and so onand yeah every subject i choose one resource but i say it all together in my previous post then the review with kaplan and usmleworld and so
the FA and the qbank will be in the both parts :mastering and reviewing

speaking of you when are you going to take the exam? for me it is may 2011 i think

and what your are now graduate or not?
i am a fifth year medical at cairo university

Kaplan notes are complete review books, especially if combined with the videos. They can be used as a main source for USMLE information.

If you mean "quick review" by the term "review", then First Aid is the one. It's more of a summary of all subjects.

ok here is the deal

i start today with anatomy
hopefully i will finish it in 15-25 days

so from this topic i saw that high yield is the best ever in anatomy

so my questions

1-what do you think cause i did start studying from it?
2-should i buy anatomy-neuro-embryo-histology or anatomy only will be enough?
3-is this enough for me to prepare for usmle cause i wont study from any other source but this one?
maybe when i do the review 3months before the exam i will look at FA and kaplan reviews

thanks

Don't waste a lot of time on choosing between books and freaking about what would be the best. There's no such thing as "best book". Every book has a different approach to the same thing.

FA + a decent Qbank will cover up any defects in any book.

So, it's all about the time available. If you have enough time to read large and numerous books, do it. If you don't, stick to one book. A book with the highest votes must be safe, so go ahead and start using it.

i finish 1/2 of gross anatomy

the remaining is
upper limb
lower limb
head and neck
eye
ear

of course not to forget
embryology
nueroanatomy


from tomorrow i will study nuero for 3 days
the next 3 days i will study embryology

then i will return to what missed in gross anatomy

in my schedule this week suppose to be my last week in anatomy but i think i am going to add extra days from the next week to finish what i left

though i have OSCE(objective structured clinical exam) in surgery tomorrow which i have to revise now but i cant keep my self away from usmle cause i wake up very fresh and i hate not to use this opportunity in get whatever i can from my preparation for usmle

last week i was lazy i just finish 2 chapters only so i have to compansate

hi again

its been a 3 weeks right now since i start my pathway to usmle

here is my status

i start the pathway with a partner with me in the same college and same year

i did start with anatomy using HIGH YIELD series

high yield gross anatomy (i finish half the book)
high yield neuroanatomy (i finish half the book)
high yield embryology (today is the second day to read from and i will start from chapter 5 hopefully by tomorrow i can complete the book)

in college we finish our first round which is surgery and next week will start OBS/GYN so from next week i will stop anatomy and start Physiology

sorry didn't look into FA or qbook cause I can't do it without actually finish reading

i plan 3 week for physiology in which i will do the first 2 weeks from it starting on Sunday
i will listen to the chapter from Kaplan with Kaplan book with me (just for following the video)
then i will study it from BRS Physiology

then i will stop it and take one week for anatomy trying to finish what i left and reed FA ans solve QBook cause that week it will be holiday the entire week so it gives me much time to finish everything regarding anatomy

i am hoping to continue with this path cause i really put my bet on it and i don't want to fail


tell me guys what do you think

for pathology it is VERY important that u read Goljan rapid review or Goljan path secret notes that goes with the Goljan audio files. u wanna add to it u can read Kaplan pathology. but if u don't have time, ONLY Goljan can save u. (i came across a few questions in the step 1, that i thanked God for giving me time to read Goljan).

ok so hi again

this is the 6th week since my first day on my path to USMLE

as i dayed before i did start with physiology 3 weeks ago but there was so many interruption last 2 weeks from confrences and exams

so i did finish 5 sections out of 10 sections from Kaplan Physiology

General Topics
Excitable Tissue
Peripheral Circulation
Skeletal Muscle
Cardiac Muscle

this week is holiday in college so i hope to finish the remaining
and start solve some question from Kaplan notes,Kaplan QBook and pretest physiology with some FA reading


2 important notes come to my attention
1 FA 2011 is now available in Amazon website so what is that suppose to mean?
2 i get to look at kaplan 2010 notes and videos
for physiology just 3 modification i become aware of

a-50% of lessons by DR.Conrad Ficher (so amazing) and the remaining for DR.Wazir Qudrat (i hope i write right spelling) and is greater than 2007 edition because I didn't enjoy the DR who was giving the first 2 sections
====
b-they made some arranges to the chapters the move chapters from section to section like ch1 in cardiac muscle they move it to be in section 2 :excitable tissue
====
c-finally they made some addition,deletion of some subjects in the chapter i will try to mention it here later on

that's for now

thanks

hi again

this is the seventh week since i started my preparation for USMLE

so I am still playing cat and mouse with physiology which never want to finish at all

till now i finish this chapter


General Topics
Excitable Tissue
Peripheral Circulation
Skeletal Muscle
Cardiac Muscle
Respiration

which is not much of progress since last week but hey who cares I still got plenty of time

150 days till my exam so i hope i am still on the right track

OK tomorrow i will start Renal and Acid Base as they are both related

on Monday i will study Endocrine and hopefully I can finish it cause it is way too big to be done in one day and maybe i will complete it on Tues where i finish the GIT

on Wed i will revise the first 2 chapter cause i didnt study them well and i will revise Embryology from Anatomy Branch

Thursday Friday and Saturday i will revise the whole gross anatomy and hopefully i will finish from them this time once and for all

so in Physiology after each chapter i solve question both in Kaplan notes and in BRS Physiology plus i do the FA pages dedicated to the chapter i studied and add some note

to Keep you guys with me I upload my schedule here so that you can follow up with me and if anyone want to follow my path i will be more than welcome

ok one important thing
i decide to solve kaplan QBook and pretest books in the Kaplan QBank week which is one month from one whihc by then i take a break from the study and start solving the questions cause in the meantime i will start to prepare for my end round exam in college in OBGYN

so thats it for now
i will be delighted to hear your thoughts

this is tribute to you guys to chill you up


YOU ARE NOT ALONE

THIS IS MY LIFE IN THE NEXT 150 DAYS


thanks

So Hello again to the exciting pathway

2months since i start my preparation for the usmle

had some obsticles but i manage to get through it

ok so far i have finish

Anatomy
Physiology

well for really am not sure abt them really cause i didnt solve any question and i didnt study the FA and move my notes to it

now i am studying Bio which i start today

so i plan to do it in 2 weeks videos+lecture notes
then one week for revision and FA and solve question and i have faith that i will solvev questions this time cause i devoted an enitre week for that matter

i suppose that this will be the period for biochemistry 28/11-18/12
3 weeks and the week after that i will start my kaplan qbanks subscription and devoted one week to solve block questions compose of anatomy,physiology and biochemistry with revesion of FA

my question is
what is better in Bio Kaplan or BRS or something else

thanks

Default good plan

but i need to ask one question ..how do you do FA with kaplan series because FA is mostly system wise and kaplan i ssubject wise ..so we should DO FA on day to day basis with kaplan or should we do that after finishing 2,3 subjects or what ....i know its silly question..but step 1prep drives you crazy duhhh..plz reply
thanks

Smile simple

it is simple bro, i prefer the subject style...u just finish physiology for example and then check it in the FA in each system

and believe me it is not time consuming at all...u will simple revise each subject twice at the same period one detailed form kaplan and the other rapid from the FA

ok hello again

10 weeks since i start my preparation and since i start to post in this thread
about my preparation

wow it is a very long journey but we can do it

i will always post this video in my talks cause it is so motivated to anyone intend to take this path

You Are not Alone


ok back to what we left

so till now i did finish Anatomy-Physiology
and this is the 3rd and last week of Biochemistry
from 12-12 to 18-12
i hope i will finish the Biochemistry by then

so far i did study the whole DNA subject but i delay Recombinant DNA and Gene Analysis cause i will revise the DNA again with Genetics

by the way questions in DNA are focused mainly in those 2 chapters i missed and genetics so you might wanna focus on them

i finish enzymes-hormones and vitamins
i finish energy metabolism-CTA

so this is my schedule for the week

11-12/12 Glycolysis +Glycogen Metabolism
13-14/12 Lipid synthesis,storage,metabolism and catabolism
15-16/12 Amino Acid metabolism+purine and pyrimidine metabolism
17-18/12 Genetics+DNA Revision

next week i will take the week off from study
and i aiming to start my 3months kaplan qbank

but guys i want to ask you something
this is my schedule


i am thinking not to start my kaplan qbank this month

instead i have Pretest Books of Physiology,Anatomy and biochemistry

i am thinking abt dedicated the next week to solve them so that i can take a break in that week
the only disadvantage in pretest that it doesn't mix the subjects together so i will have to solve each subject separately which is different than the exam but it is ok as the first time solving question
there question are not easy so i can compare it to the real exam

also i get to purchase my kaplan qbank the next stop for it which is in 30/1
i like this idea cause that way it will stay with me till 30/4 which is one week before my exam

so what do you think guys

you know last weeks you want to train in a full mocks exams to simulate the real exam so according to my schedule i will still have kaplan qbank subscription and usmle world subscription so i can take many mocks to prepare my self starting by 4 blocks then increase till i reach 7 blocks

i really need your opinion

this is the choices
1-start Kaplan Qbank 3months from 19/12 to 19/3
2-start Kaplan Qbank 3months from 30/1 to 30/4
3-start Kaplan Qbank 2 months from 30/1 to 30/3 (cause i will have UW by then so it doesn't matter)
for the second and third choices as i says i will solve pretest books

thanks and catch up with you next week

Looks like you're doing fine. I am now doing phys with Costanzo's book. Hopefully next week I will start Microbiology. Now I do have little busy since I intend to have the first reading done in january 15th. I thought first that i will be done in the end of year, but I had little busy in something else and didn't have quite as much time for reading as I hoped, but now I am on the track again.

Well... at first I thought that I would have more time that I ended up to have. So I ordered the books in the august and started to read them in october. First I thought that 6 months should be sufficient. Maybe it would be sufficient if I had the time I planned to have, but now I ended up reading 1-3hours a day ( I calculated that I would have 4-6 hours) because of my research work.

Now I plan to do it sometime between june-august. 9-10months.

hello again
so 11 weeks since i start my pathway to Residency and thus by start the preparation for Step 1 USMLE

i finish Physiology,Anatomy and Biochemistry

this week i take a break where i focus mainly on solving questions to get to know my progress

but i have a confession to make

really really i couldnt finish all the topics in each subject . this is typical of me where i always left remannents in everything

so lets take a look
Physiology:i listen to the whole kaplan videos and studied everything but Endocrine am totally white page on it
also the neurophysiology wasnt included in kaplan but it was included in BRS so i decide to delay it to study it together with neuroanatomy

Anatomy:finish first half on each book gross,embryo and neuro so many lefts to do

Bio:i left Recombinant DNA-Genetic Analysis Technique-Glycogen-Amino Acid Metabolism-purine and pyrimidine metabolism-Gene mapping-Genetic Diagnosis

if i choose advice to give it to you
it will only be this advice

dont you ever stop preparating for the exam if there was anything make you busy

i did stip for two weeks for my OBGYN end round exam and now look at me

cannot even complete 60 min studying without being bored

so whatever you have that makes you stop keep some relation between you and usmle

even solve 10 question per day if that will help keep you in contact with usmle

now back to the schedule

everything now is serious
i register at ECFMG for my ECFMG ID,Make a new Exam Application and the remaining is to pay for the exam Which 920$ by the way,it increase 40$ last days

i am only 5 weeks a way to finish my 1st Reading
i did anatomy-physiology-biochemistry-pathology and now i am in Micro and Immunity and Behavirol Science
i am planning in doing both and i started last week and will finish by the end of this week hopefully

in the next 2 weeks i will study Pharmacology and i will incorporate biochemistry with it as a revision cause i think there is some relation between the two(there is not!)

the last two weeks i will revise Anatomy-Physiology and pathology together in an organ system method with First Aid


sorry for not posting anything here for the last 4 week

hope you enjoined my journey and To Be Continued
