Default Best USMLE Programs

Hello. I am a medical student currently studying in Monash University Malaysia and I want to practise medicine in the States. I would be sitting for USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK this year. Step 1 is due within the next 3-5 months. I need major help as to how should I study. What books would I need? Where do I study from? Would the USMLE programs such as USMLE Success Academy and Kaplan etc etc help and if they do, which program should I join? Please help.

kaplan books with videos. For pathology you have the choice of pathoma or goljan. I personally use pathoma. Also try to annotate what you can into first aid textbook.

Question banks: kaplan qbank or uworld (or both if you have time). Otherwise use uworld and annotate what you can into first aid textbook.

That's what I'm doing. Perhaps other students can provide you with more options.

good luck with studies.
