Question should we review what we learned in mbbs?

how preferable is to review the textbuks and other stuffs like notes that you crammed and learned so much during the 5 years of mbbs study... is it worth spending some time refreshing your old knowledge?

The problem is that most of our MBBS courses are NOT USMLE oriented and they don't focus on the high yield
So ultimately you have to open your Kaplan
A good alternative is to carry your Kaplan and FA from the start of MBBS and annotate them as you take your Step 1 and Step 2 while doing MBBS

Medical knowledge is the same everywhere
My Australian graduate did not open a single paper of Kaplan or FA and relied completely on his school's lecture notes and got over 90 in both steps!
