Hi dr.kriti!

I am planning to take Step 1 sometime between February and April 2014, not sure exactly when. I will be working and studying in my free time. Have not started yet as I am working on my graduation right now. When will you start/have you started yet? Are you following a study plan?
Looking forward to share our progress in this thread!

Val

Hey guys! I finished med school in Poland a year ago and been living in NYC since.
I wanna take the STEP 1 somewhere around December- January. Don't have much time to study either cause I'm working in 2 places heh.
Let's definitely do something together!

one question guys, what are u reading?
You wanna base your preparation mostly on First aid or what?
I'm really confused to be honest, the more that I will not have much time to study.
Best!

I think first aid should be the go to book for all subjects to get an idea about high yield topics in every subject..
And besides that keep looking up at qbanks to see wat sort of questions are asked and watever we are studying is enough or not..
Any other ideas guys ??
