Group talk What are you studying?

Sup guys...i see this forum is pretty dead in terms of not many people posting what they are studying etc right now at the moment...we had a lot of those type of threads in the step 1 forum but none here...so i decided to make one of my own...

Well since a month in which my results have came for step 1 I've only managed to do about 100 world qs and read like 20 pages in MTB

But Ive decided to get serious now cause i plan on taking the exam in three months... will be updating this thread daily...hope to see others posting in it!!!

Right now have about 30 qs from world to review so that is on the agenda for today

On UW right now. Also when reviewing the questions I go to MTB 2 and 3 at the same time, what's not in MTB 2 or 3I write down on my notebook.
So far so good. Trying to manage time to study with a 2 and a half month old baby,
Keep on studying hard people, we can do this.
Planning on taking my exam on march. My goal was december but I havent have enough time to study until this week when I started studying for real 4 times a week for about 6 h every day. Hopefully is enough

By the way I also use FA for step 1, is amazing how much stuff is in FA even for step 2.

You reading KLN or MTB only?
Sadly, I wasted another day.. Guests and Kids.. ! :|

I was too lazy to pick up FA or Kaplan step 1 neuro so I went straight to UW and I guess I scored between 60-70 percent.. Average I guess was 65 percent...When I will go for the second read, I will definitely pick up FA or KAPLAN neuro for references.

Aaru20-- Man start UW asap! Forget everything else. :|

@Everyone- Am I the only one who is gaining weight while studying for boards?

Sup brotha how u been?

Yea man i started right away with uworld, cause my biggest regret from step 1 was not using uworld up to its potential...not gonna waste my time with other question banks, so will be probably doing uworld around 2 times

Doing that along with MTB 2 and 3 along the way, you know the usual...uworld is not bad at all, A LOT of it is step 1 knowledge as you know about half the qs are from internal med alone

Plan is to do till around mid dec then take nbme 2....and then will go from there accordingly...need to take this by end of feb cause i haven't taken cs yet and gonna book that next week for may

I'm doing MTBs with kaplan videos now, I was too afraid to start with UW right away. Starting to think I should have though.

Good luck bro

would be finishing IM in uworld by next week......left with cardio. electrolytes, derma n biostats...............by far found neurology tough

have a different feeling doing uworld for CK compared to step 1...my score graph plays see-saw....sometimes down to 60% and other times shoots up to 90%......

Hope all u guys are doing fine with your preparation.....

Many people have said different things so i think the choice is up to you...people say that a lot of stuff is missing in mtb but most people have said that it gets covered up by uworld...

me myself i have no time for kln so I'm doing mtb and world

Default Great thread! Update so far

Have been literally off books since step1 .. Started Int med from KLN notes..

plan to do KLN notes and UW only? Anybody with same plan? and how should I go with? Finish KLN and go for UW or better to start UW earlier..

Test may be by march.

How early one should take CS to be eligible for 2014 match?

You might wanna take CS before may 19th to have your result by june-july. If you take it later than that, you'll get your results in aug-sep.. that cud made things a lil tight.

Those of you who have done questions on vaccination from UW, can you temme if it's necessary to memorize the entire vaccination schedule. I am talking about that chart that's there in MTB as well as KLN.. are we expected to know all of that?

MTB = Master the Boards. I am new to studying myself (only few weeks into it) so I cannot tell you how FA compares It seems to have some good info but I cannot really tell until I start doing practice questions how good it is.
I started studying by doing a quick read through of my review books cover to cover. Then I started doing Kaplan videos. Before each subject I have read that section in the review book then watched the videos. I take notes on little things then I read through the FA Ck and try to add any notes into the book. Been going okay thus far just have to keep it up.
Good luck studying and hopefully you can find a way to study that works for you11
