Help starting with USMLE

Hi,

I'm really new to this forum. This is the first time I'm writing!!!
I joined this forum because I'm thinking seriously about taking tha USMLE exams. I'm a Greek medical student, in the third year and I'd like to be more informed about USMLE. When is the right time to take step 1 and what are the books that I have to read? I'd also like to know how much time I need for my preparation. As you see I know nothing. I've only just read some posts that suggest Kaplan's books.
So I really need your advice!!!
Thank you in advance!!

Do not be overwhelmed by the lots of info seen in the various threads of the forums

Start simply with Kaplan

See the video after each chapter

Start with physiology, as it's the easiest and the most engaging

Within few days you'll find yourself carried on and you'll start to understand all the threads in this forum

I had the same problem when I started preparing for my step 1, I face difficulty initiating the journey but once I started it was flowing and nobody can stop you thereafter

Good luck my friend
