Anatomy Step 1 Anatomy

Hey guys, quick question. Any suggestions on how to study for Anatomy for Step 1? I've been using KLN and videos for pretty much everything else. Any recommendations on whether or not to use the KLNs, and if the videos are helpful at all or if it is all mostly covered in the book. The videos so far seem pretty dry and I am not sure how high yield they are. Any tips or suggestions on methodology and study material would be greatly appreciated!

Am doing Kaplan anatomy now. Am using the vedios big time but of course I have to cover my bag with the notes. The info I don't have in the notes I write them out of the videos into the notes.
Reasons why u shd also read the notes.
1. U can easily have a point of reference when solving questions but cannot be opening vedio after vedio to check.
2. Explained info u write into the notes could be written against the pictures for easy recall and understanding.
3. U could easily highlight important stuff for last minute review

Thanks for the tips. I agree, i've just been following along in the notes and highlighting stuff that is emphasized in the videos. However, I am still trying to figure out how high yield this stuff is in general, and am also having trouble determining which information is minutiae vs facts that I will be tested on

Am enjoying the anatomy man. So nice. I was not thought like this back in school. Certainly anatomy looks straight forward compared to the biochem.
Another tip is Dont waist ur time trying to recall all the minute details that may not be tested. Any detail that is important would pop up during question reviews.
The trillion dollar question is to know which info would be tested on ur exams. Remember 1st we are learning to pass this exams and 2nd to acquire all the knowledge it comes with it. I don't believe in the reverse of this statement becos brilliant students fail the exam and average students pass greatly and who enters into programmes then. So study to ace this exams strategically.
