Default Step 1.Identical study plan 4 people, mid 240's to mid 250's collectively.

Received my score a while back, studied for a about 2 months diligently, worked out every day, took weekends off, every friday and saturday night off even the week before test day.(you need to rest and REST your neurocircuitry) never studied more than 6-8 hrs on a given day. a couple of my good buddies and I used the exact same study method, literally document for document, video for video. the 4 of us were able to score in the mid 240's to mid 250's amongst the 4 of us. We all did "FAUPS". S is for sketchy medical

-Throughout the year of MS2 to supplement lectures. ->
First Aid, DIT and pathoma to supplement lecture topics. Not exhaustively, just to be well versed in the subjects for lack of solid professorship in most areas. Sketchy Micro for micro block. could repeat all of the videos nearly word for word. No other books, notes etc. Sketchy micro 3x through during this block allowed for >90% on USMLE practice Qs on world.

-Dedicated period : 6 weeks->
1. Memorize first aid. literally, tried to memorize. must have gone through over 3X alone + referencing after Qs.
2. Pathoma on repeat. 4X through all pathoma videos on 2X speed (mostly in the car driving to visit GF)
3. U world. Most valuable source most people do not know how to properly utilize. Learn from it don't just do questions to do them.
4. Sketchy micro 3x through all videos again (mostly in car)
5. USMLE RX for additional Questions. made 50% through Q bank. not critical, would recommend during the year before dedicated.

We were all pretty satisfied with our scores. mid 240's to mid 250's for my 3 friends and I. Good luck peeps.
