Hi,
I am an IMG preparing for my step 1. I have finished my kaplan notes and vids, and I'm gonna finish patho(goljan) soon. I want to start Uworld but the thing is I haven't even touched my first aid even once(regretting it now:scared:).
Can some one please advice me what I should do. I don't know how to do this. Should I finish first aid then go to UW? I'm confused.

Just start Uworld , and start doing one block random timed per day and read everything correct uncorrect explanations for every question and make notes of the points u mat think u ll forget . A test plus reading will take a total of around 6 hours . the rest of the time of that day do like 20 pages of first aid . by the end of the total of 55 blocks (days) . u would have read first aid twice. I didnt do first aid before uworld either

I agree with Drsaeed90. Especially because you have already finished the Kaplan stuff. This should have also covered many things inside First Aid.

thank you for the advice. I just had one more question. When purchasing for Uworld it gives an option of uworld+self assesment(form 1+2) for two weeks.what does that mean?and should i get the qbank only or the one with the self assesment?
Thanks once again:)

UWSA 1 and 2 are two 4 block self assessment tests with explanations . u can access each of them for two weeks . u should definitely get them with the qbank

Agree with others, definitely start UWorld now because it will be the best resource above all else. Supplement with the First Aid book as you go. Good luck!
