Smile try this

physio, bio and anatomy first
then
patho
mirco
pharma
then
behav, sci....

try to integrate Qbank, pretest and BRS questions in between
then
at the end of the whole subjects do the online stuff

i prefer the ZumZum method though, it is really nice with modification of the time given to each subject according to ur needs

Default Which order to study the topics in for Step 1?

I am about to start Step 1 studying.

I was wondering which order people found it best to study the topics in?

For example, would it be difficult to study Pharmacology if you have zero knowledge of biochemistry or physiology? Should I study Physiology before Pathology? Should certain topics be studied together or one after the other, eg. Microbiology and Pharmacology? etc

Any suggestions?

The appropriate sequence to follow when you read Kaplan notes is this:

Anatomy
Physiology
Biochemistry
Microbiology
Pathology
Pharmacology
Behavioral sciences
