i'm in the middle of the Kaplan live lectures that my school forces us to take. Since we are on spring break right now, I've had the past week off, and I've been doing the DIT videos, on day 8.

DIT is cool so far, it can get really boring at times because the guy is basically reading the FA to you, so if you have the videos, look at the schedule of them and see what subjects you need work in and listen to those days, which is what I should have done, because it's taken me longer to go through the videos since i'm listening to them all. He's really big on pharm, and that's helpful and he throws out a lot of high yield tidbits of info that you won't find in any books.

All of Kaplan is good. Well everything I've gone through so far which is Micro, Immuno, Physio, Pharm, and Path. When we start back up in May we'll finish with biochem, genetics, anatomy, and behavioral science.

I plan on taking my step in Mid June so from here on out, I'm just planning on bumping up the # of Qs i do in a day and resorting to videos/reading when I truly don't know or understand a concept.

Also, I've never been a 12hr/day study guy...after about 8 focused hours I'm spent, so that's why I don't want to waste those hours with videos, lol.

Default Step 1 advice needed pleaseee!!!

Hi guys!

I was wondering if you could give me some advice based on your experiences! My exam is in 2months. I have DIT vids, Kaplan vids and the Pass Program vids! i have already finished 12/15days of DIT and find it to be good because it helped me go through FA, plus i dont really mind that what Jenkins mainly does is just read the book! Also when im done with the chapter i study it from FA then quiz myself using the FA cases book which helps put the FA info into a clinical case scenario.

Id be veryyyy grateful if you could message me back on here or email me at with your advice whether i should just stick to DIT and go over it again, or did you find that eg. Pass Program was better or Kaplan etc etc.

Thank you!!
