Default MY study plan

Hey whats up, so this was my study plan. I took Step 1 on 2012. I started to study by subjects, starting with Anatomy bc I didnt like it the most. I did then micro, biochem, physio, pharma, BS & stats and patho (just cause you have to know the basics first). I did study by feel, some days I studied a lot some days I just didn't felt like it. But every day at the end of each session I did at least 10 questions form UW(so buy the 6mo or yr subsc), personally I think UW its the most accurate and the key to success. Try to understand the processes instead of memorizing it. Know for a fact that this journey is exhausting but the reward is worth it. Its really hard to develop your own schedule, I woke up at 8:30 ish and started at 9 sharp, at 12 I went to the gym (helped me sleep better) and at 2:30 started my studying again till like 8-9.

I had a separate notebook for the q bank and I did all the subjects "Q's" from start.

If you need any help let me know, and good luck
