psyciatry is a bit tricky.. best thing is to REALLY read the question well... one word can change the answer (eg - duration of symptoms)

i heard the kaplan tapes and thought they were really good. my scores improved after that for psychiatry.....

OBGY is a real problem....

just practice and solve more questions i guess.

best of luck for ur exam

i started to watch kaplan psychiatry vids and they're really fun :)
since u're starting ur prep i recommend u to watch those vids and take notes to revise later.
I also tried the obgyn vids but i didn't like them, they're saying exactly wuts in the notes. so now i'm just reading the notes and doing the UW obgyn section

COnsidering obgyn, are you saying that videos are not useful at all? Don't they explain things like they do in therapy?

NOOO !! not "at all" , they have some advantages but considering my very short preperation time :S i went thru some of the gyne vids and i felt like they were wasting my time so i ignored the rest of it and only revised the kaplan notes!
wish u the best with ur prep for step 2 :)
