@ sameera
it depends on ur preparation , you are in 2nd yr now so grab anatomy , physio , biochem kaplan notes and give them a good read along with your text books meanwhile start doing questions from qbook , in third year you ll have pharma and mirco along with immunology and by fourth you ll be doing pathology so best time would be end of fourth yr or start of final yr if you follow it all the way , consider yourself lucky becuz u can get all the guidance from here and you are early at this so make full use of it goodluck

I just took my 2nd prof exams! That means I'm done with my basics.
I have the Kaplan Lecture Notes and Kaplan Q Bank books..I'm not very good at what I've studied... I need a study partner, preferably online!
Can anyone tell me what'd be the best time to take step 1 exam ??
