I've been asked by lemontea to post my experience in preparation for the step 1 exam.
I already gave two threads here
http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-step-1-forum/1330-ive-got-my-usmle-step-1-score.html
http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-step-1-forum/1141-just-did-exam.html

Now let me tell you what did I read
I finished

  • Kaplan notes twice, DVDs once
  • FA twice and third time before the test
  • USMLERx once (only difficult questions)
  • Kaplan Qbank once
  • UWorld twice (second time only wrong answers)
  • Did not do NBME
  • Did not do Goljan
  • Did not do any simulation exam

I managed through the materials I mentioned above. my personal experience perhaps helped a little with the clinical scenarios but mainly it was the materials that helped me get the score.

I had a quick look (no constant schedule) while I was studying Kaplan but the major reading was in the few weeks before the exam.

awesome

I like yr plan for the exam.
I planned on something simple as well.
I'll probably spend more time on the NBME and UW though since I will have extra 2 months before taking the exam in November (as according to the schedule I made for myself).
