Question What to do last week before Step 1?

Hey Guys,

So after 5 hard week of study I have one more left before my exam, and I would like to know what is the best way to be efficient, and review relevant things, without burning out..yet still keeping stamina for the test.

What I've done in the past 5 weeks.

Read Goljan RR,
Listened Goljan RR
FA (2 x)
all the nbme tests except for 1 of them, which I plan on doing next week.
Micro Simple, Behavior Science HY, Neuroanatomy, Anatomy, Embryo ...bla bla bla (all the reference books for each topic)


Thanks!

Idea!

hey my friend

i took the exam before two weeks , as you finish with goljan and first aid you done the most important part , dont panic exam not impossible to do. now in this week

*relax
*if you can educate yourself about ct and ct and ct I can not emphasize more you will raise your score -it will pay off for you- same thing apply for pathological picture (most of the ct quistion since you know the label the structures)
*what to read ? either keep doing first aid but if find yourself confident you can do uw wrong quistion it is key for other quistion

good luck

thank you everyone! well I read the relevant sections of each book and was judicious with what was important! Thanks for the advice on the CT's, I think that is a good idea. Any advice on which area to focus MOST of the CT time?
