Help Screwed Up China Resident

Hello there,

I am planning to give USMLE step 1 by this July-august 2013. I am doing my residency in china and is in second year. I am totally screwed up. I am following Kaplan books and lecture videos. I want to plan my study so that it can be effective. I am clueless how should I proceed and what need to be focused. I need your guidance to plan for study and to focused so that I can crack this exam.
Thank you.
Anisha

I hope someone with more experience responds to you ^^'
But , but in general i think it would be good if u incorporate question banks early on, for eg use one qbank or book during kaplan vids and books, then do one test to see how much u gained.. maybe after ur first go thro the vids start uworld and see.
It depends alot from person to person.

Sounds rushed, maybe 6 weeks of Kaplan Lecture notes, carefully scheduled (i tried a book per week but I had to go back to them)
Before May ends quickly jump to qbanks. One or two blocks per day, carefully reviewing the answer explanations, specially why the wrong answers were wrong. Take notes on one or more notebooks, or maybe in First Aid 2013 like many prefer.
Carry your FA 2013 and try to memorize it from today until the day of the exam.
A note, FA 2012 was horrible and 2013 has new content you'll find in UWorld.
