Guys , i hv just started reading kaplan notes for step 1....started with anatomy ...My question is do i need to read and understand each and every line carefully in notes or should i just focus more on darkened(highlighted words) for the exam ....

Does the exam mainly focus on these darkened words?.Plz few tips from the all those ppl who have appeared already in exam how to go through notes :):)

What KLN do is structure your knowledge with clear and organized concepts. It's like a loooong introduction to FA.

Try to read every single word of the notes without forcing yourself to memorize it because it's simply too much, just understand what you're reading. The important thing is to take notes in FA of the unclear topics or details that make you understand FA better, especially since it's kind of disorganized at first.

The key is to compress all books (KLN, BRS, HY, Pathoma, etc.) in FA so it becomes your final review book :)

Good luck!
