Well, I had started to learn 1,5 years ago but Initially I wasn't motivated much, I was reading 1-3 hours/day, but during last 7 months I did 3-4/hours day and succeed.
What I read? Kaplan notes+Videos; BRS(embryology, bochem, behavioral,physiology), High-Yield (Neuroscience, molecular biology, biostat, genetics, gross anatomy), Goljan, deja review microb, Fisher flash cards for Pharmac, But the MOST importants are Usmle World multiple choices for 9 months, and First AID at least two times, and of course GOLJAN.... What is crucial? If you LOVE this, You will do best, if you just do for getting MD degree in US, it will be torturous. USMLE is easy, the volume is big.

BUT YOU ARE NOT HERE JUST TO PASS !!! YOU ARE HERE to....?
