true that having step 1 knowledge very helpful for ck..i dont know what to say you need to decide what to do first..i am just thinking that step 1 material is huge..and will be better to finish one then start another..read ck again use kaplan books and open step 1 only for spec.topics...good luck

Default try usmle courses

Hi anusandhu,

I'm so sorry to hear the news.. Must be very frustrating for you. Are you an IMG? If you are, think carefully before taking the exam again since attempts will lower your chances. So make sure you are ready and aim high to cover this red flag.

It seems that you would benefit with usmle courses. Try Kaplan live online courses or Becker/Falcon. I personally only tried kaplan, but a friend who took Falcon was very satisfied and it's a lot cheaper than K.

Good luck! Hope you will find ways.

True that courses are very costly. On that consideration I chose live online course which costs half price of live course. Falcon sometimes have discounts. Try visit their Web and talk to one of advisers. First consultation is usually free.

Other options can be look for free Kaplan videos on the net and find a study partner to help you discuss and review materials.

Anusandhu can you please write how you studied?
I'm worrying about failing very much, and I just see success stories here. If you can explain how you studied maybe we all can figure out what was missing in your part and what should people like me avoid.
Don't worry it will be ok!
