Here's what I did.hi planning to give my usmle exam on april of 2011. when i should start my application process pls help me
Disagree with you.Here's what I did.
I didn't sign up until I was just about ready.
I did all my qbanks and studying without signing up. The reason being, is because I didn't want to constantly watch the calender and rush myself into taking the test. It was only when I was on my last revision that I thought, "OK I am ready as I can be, time to get signed up". It only took me a couple weeks to get eveything done and I picked my site 2 weeks before I took the exam.
So, I could be the odd ball, but I just didn't want that extra pressure/stress of reading something with the back of my mind saying, good enough you gotta study something else cause times running out.
