Arrow Now on step 1 exam

The following thread found in another usmle forum. I though it useful for future examinees. Please.....

Now the USMLE step 1: April 2011

1. a lot of pharmacology, please memorize the receptors Gs, Gi, Gq, etc, they aske almost everything in kaplan. learn drug side effects.
2. psychiatry: heavily tested in this one: first aid is a must here.
3. pathology: barone from kaplan live lectures (90%)
4. anatomy/neurology: study neuroanatomy form kaplan, and anatomy from first aid, specially the brachial plexus (learn that very well), also foot inervation (at least 6 questions on that...tibial nerve, peroneal, and the clinical case,etc.
5.epidemiology: 5 questions or so (which was more than I expected), memorize the "sensitivity, specificity, chi square thing" the rest important, but poorly tested or too confusing to figure out on the spot.
6.biochemistry: study the last chapters of biochemistry very well, please. aminoacid metabolism, urea cycle, and lysosomal diseases (all of them). read this chapters every day.
7.genetics: first aid
8.cardiovascular system: kaplan, and Barone's class.
9: microbiology: memorize first aid, every word and associantion on this subject. they get tricky here. but the first aid is enough.
10. physiology: endocrinology physiology is all i can remember i got. the patient with the symptoms, and then the options with arrows saying what goes up and what goes down.

please take the NBMEs payed forms, they predicted every single one of my steps. I dont want you to go through the hell I went through, so go and do your best...if that doesn't it again...and again...and don't let anyone tell you that you cannot do this, because you deserve it the same as I do.
