Thank you !

Well, I did it during my internship year along with our local exam and electives. The whole period was about 9 month, I studied for CK alone for about 4 months but I was working, then had one week off before exam.

Studying materials:
- FA with some topics covered for MTB

- medquest videos: was very helpful in internal medicine, other subjects were not as good.

- Qbanks: UW twice with taking notes to be revised before exam, Kaplan Qbank (about 20% of Qs only), pretest pediatric (was good), FA Q&A.. I strongly suggest doing as much questions as you can, it helps you to catch the trick and helps with time management.

- Did few topics from Kaplan LN, it was super lengthy and full of low yield stuff. I don't recommend them if you have good background.

- For immunizations in adult and pediatric, I highly recommend reading latest updates on CDC website "very high yield"

- I also covered some basic sciences topics as I didn't do step 1 yet:
* almost all Pharmacology topics form Kaplan LN + videos
* microbiology: major classification and pathogens from FA step 1
* biostatistics from Kaplan LN + videos. High yield statistics is good too.

Wish you the best of luck
