hey coolfire
i am sorry i dont have an answer to your question, instead i have a q for you.
i think we prep for step 1 around the same time, pls when are you going to take CS?
btw i have FA for step 2 also, but the way i hear it MTB may be a better book.

No guys...MTB is ok....good but if u read first aid u will find ans to 90% of UW questions in it.where as in MTB i felt there was lack of some info...and so its worth reading FA first...
supplement with MTB n UW

hi there
I am not her to say this book better than this book. but saying the first aid is better because it have all the answer for uw bank, is wrong .why ? you can write book about usmle step 2 that have every answer for uw, and wowww this best preparation book ever . my point is if UW usefue you should learn the point from it , you do not need to review book that take what uw say .

by the way I am not done with exam yet . and I am done with first month of three that I plan to prepare to the exam

good luck

i neve said FA has all ans to UW...mate...may be not 90% but 80% yes...

so once u read FA , do MTB , know imp stuff...annotate if u need when u do UW.

Doin UW will ring a bell, it will tell u to focus on so many things u overlooked, though it was there in FA.

so jst make sure u chek on ur FA , annotate when u need , tick mark the imp points questioned in UW with a red pen and revise n revise...

N if u dnt believe me u can find it out urself readin all diff books urself...jst do wat suits u man...no pressure

he man I didn't say mtb better or first aid not good . my point is the criteria on which judge the book (can answer UW q ) is not accurate . however I wish best of luck and highest score you wish . again good luck
