Help Preparation for Step 1

Hello people,

I am planning to give my step1 on august 2014 about 2nd or 3rd week. I have about 6 months (and in between 1 month i have my university examinations) for the preparation.
Can someone guide me how to start the prep and when should start using qbanks? Should I use it immediately after I finish each subject or after finishing review of all the subs should I use it?. I am planning to start with anatomy and go thru all the subjects before February 2nd week and after that review qbanks for another 2 months then 1 month gap for my unis exams and then start again with FA and qbank review.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Definitely do questions along with your first read. You can use Kaplan Qbank & keep UWorld for later. Finishing these 2 qbanks is highly recommended. This consolidates the theory concepts & encourages you to study books in the context of exam.

Going through books can get boring & one may lose focus. It's very helpful to do questions alongside, have a study partner and keep deadlines to finish books and never lose focus for long periods of time.

GL!
