i personally think there is no point reading FA if the kaplan notes arent covered yet. because the FA notes are just short notes to help us remember. but reminding ourselves of the concepts is highly important. so i think read the FA while doing kaplan or goljan pathology, then again memorize FA while doing yr UW and NBME and only read FA a few days before the exam so u dont overwhelm yrself with too much information.

You have to keep reading it again and again until you memorize it by heart. There's no way you enter Step 1 Exam without mastering FA from cover to cover.

Memorize it word by word

You cannot get away with Step 1 without memorizing every word in First Aid. That's a fact.

Memorize cover to cover

First Aid should be memorized from cover to cover.
Keep repeating it until you memorize it all.

Hi, I know this is old thread, but I see that you have already taken step 1. Honestly, how long did it take you to memorize it by heart? If you memorise every detail in first aid can you get 99? thx
