You need to go to ECFMG.org and apply for your step 1.
You need to fill out the online section
It will ask you what block you want to sign up for
Each block is 3 months (jan - march as an example)
You need to send the printable form to your school
You school needs to send that to the ECFMG
You will get a number
You use that number to sign up at a prometric center in your block period
If you haven't been brushed up on your sciences in awhile, I wouldn't just go take the exam. You will need to study, probably at least 3 months.
