Im not sure if I asked on this forum or not, but im a bit worried about the quality of my study plan. I am finishing up my 1st year of med school and i wanted to write my step 1 in Jan 2012.
My background: my medical school focuses on specific common conditions in a very detailed manner, but doesnt cover all of them. It is very clinically focused. So, i kinda want to study for step I as if I only know the basics; I dont want to assume that I know a certain topic very well.
I have 2 months free (Dec 2010 and Jan 2011) and then I have full time school till Nov 2011. Then i'll have approx 6 weeks free.
This is my study plan thus far:
Over the 2 month break (dec and Jan) cover all the material via Kaplan lec
+ lectures, Goljan audio and FA
. I plan on doing all kaplan lectures except the pathology ones
. For pathology I will only do Goljan audio and Goljan rapid review
What do you guys think? Should I do both?
Then during full time school I plan on do all Qbanks
except USMLE world and go back to the sections am forgetting.
In the last 6 weeks I plan on doing all the questions from UW.
Please give me lots of comments and feel free to criticize. I really appreciate all of your input and best of luck on your studying!
