Default How do I start Again!!!

Hello folks, I need a little help here. I did kaplan notes, MTB 2 and 3 once, and online UW once ( awg 70%). Then I took NBME, which went bad. After that, there was a break in my study and now I want to start again and sit for exam ASAP. But not sure, from where should I start!
I hope I get some insight from you people. Thanks

me three!

I haven't decided what to do yet. So I hope we can get some sensible reply.

My tentative plan is to really repeat everything from scratch. Do Kaplan notes, do MTB2 and 3, UWorld, review some high-yield Step 1 stuff (FA Step 1), and some path (Goljan). Afterwards do USWA and NBME.

But we three need your help guys...

I will start with IM first as it covers the major part of the exam and also forms a base for other subjects. ( resources: UW plus MTBs)
best of luck to all of you.

I am planning mine on Feb or Mar.

I have started before, and am doing quite decently on my qbanks. But something came up that I need to postpone my prep and focus doing something. Now, I am planning to start all over again.

I am re-doing all materials that I did before. Though it was quite a lot. KLN, MTB2 and 3, FAU Step 1, Goljan, All Kaplan videos... and of course Uworld and NBME. I think it will take me around 6 months to finish everything.

I think you're right InRace. You should start with Internal Medicine. Afterwards, anything can follow. But for me, it will me Meds --> Peds --> ObGyn --> Surg ---> Psych and Epidemiology
