Best USMLE Tutor Student Reviews


After finishing your 2nd year of Medical School, now it's time to crush USMLE Step 1 and if you are looking for the Best possible help for your upcoming USMLE Step 1, you have come to the best place... Best USMLE Tutor!

Here are Best Tips and High Yield Strategies for Acing USMLE Step 1...



1) Do well on MCAT. What has MCAT Score got to do with your USMLE Step 1 Score?

Try to do well on MCAT (at least 35 or more) and get into a US Medical School. If you can't get into a US Medical School then try to get into a top tier Caribbean Medical School. MCAT score reflects your language skills, understanding of the Physical, Chemical and Biological Sciences and your Standardized Test taking Skills... which are Critical for ACING USMLE Step 1.



2) How to understand each question exactly the way the question writer intends you to?

USMLE Question Writers are experts in their particular fields and write these questions in a manner such that anyone who knows English and medical language and the topics covered in that question well enough should be able to easily narrow down to the single best answer.

Here is the Best USMLE Tutor way to achieve just that:


Begin by working on your medical vocabulary by learning the Latin, Greek, and English roots, prefixes, suffixes and combining forms; build top 200 drugs vocabulary; know your labs; know medical images and know medical sounds and their descriptions!

(This is Key step in the Best USMLE Tutor Tips and Strategies for a successful Medical/ Surgical Career and for Acing USMLE Step 1)

You may ask why? Clearly because Perception becomes Reality...Most students tend to do bad on Standardized tests such as USMLE Step 1 because of poor grasp of medical vocabulary as it pertains to medical words, medical numbers, medical images and sounds which triggers a false understanding of the question stem as we unconsciously completely ignore the words, numbers, images and sounds that we haven't heard about, and the ones we don't know well enough lead to misunderstanding the clinical scenario presented and clearly leads to the unavoidable selection of the wrong answer or the inability to narrow it down to the right answer. . because you didn't have a fighting chance... So.. We highly recommend that you learn and ace the Medical LANGUAGE (words, numbers, images and sounds of medicine) because that's what USMLE Step 1 questions are made up off.


Ask yourself, do you know what Meta- means? Do you know what the word diabetes means? Do you know what Relative Bradycardia means? Do you know the names and mechanisms of top 200 drugs and their indications and contraindications and adverse effects? Do you know all the normal lab values and most common conditions associated with their various degrees of variations? Do you know Radiology images well? How about Gross images, histology, special stains? How about dermatology, eye & ear images, ECGs, EEGs, Action potentials, LV and lung Pressure volume loops? Do you know your murmurs, heart sounds, lung sounds and various bruits? Not knowing some of these things well enough makes all the difference in your comprehension of any Medical Text Book, Guide, Q-Bank and the USMLE Exam itself!!!!!

Remember almost all well informed students who take USMLE Step 1 are using the same resources... then why such varied results from Failing, to barely passing to Acing the USMLE Step 1... It's not the resources at fault, it's your inability to fully comprehend and wisely use those resources in a timely fashion... is what will ultimately determine how you will do on your USMLE Step 1. Best USMLE Tutor focuses on building your vocabulary, knowledge, comprehension, speed, stamina, motivation and ultimately build your USMLE Step 1 Question comprehension and Answering Skills to get you to your Best USMLE Step 1 score!


3) How to never run out of time on USMLE Step 1?

The Human Brain has a very powerful filtering mechanism when it comes to processing and retaining information. Trust and believe that Medical field will require you to retain a lot of information very quickly and each clinical vignette on USMLE Step 1 will have a lot of information which you will be required to process in a very short period of time.. you will not have time to read the questions twice. . So, you must be able to understand the question fully in the very first and very quick read and be able to come up with the answer that exactly answers what's being asked. Inability to do so WILL result in RUNNING OUT of TIME on the Step 1. You only have enough time to reflexively answer questions so build your Reflexes through practicing Timed full length 7 blocks/day mock tests!


4) How long should it take for you to prepare for the USMLE Step 1 in order for you to ACE it?

or

What is the Ideal preparation time for Acing the USMLE Step 1?

Well it depends whether you went to a US, Caribbean, or an International Medical School and how well you did in your 1st 2 years of school and for IMGs in particular... how long ago you graduated from Medical School?

For most US Medical School students who were doing well in school, it should take 3-5 weeks of solid preparation.

For most Caribbean Medical Students who were doing well in school, it should take 6-8 weeks for Step 1.

For most International Medical Graduates it should take 2-3 months for Step 1.


5) Which Books should you read for acing USMLE Step 1?

Best USMLE Tutor recommends:

First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 for an overall review.

For Review during Medical School...

High Yield Gross Anatomy, Embryology, Histology, Neuroanatomy, cell biology, and Genetics.

BRS Physiology and Behavioral Science.

Illustrated Pharmacology and Biochemistry.

WEBPATH (Free Online Website) for Pathology.

Medical Microbiology made Ridiculously Simple.


6) Which Question Bank is the Best and Most Similar to the questions found on the USMLE Step 1?

NBME Self Assessment Tests Are undoubtedly the #1 (BEST). The newest ones are the best reflectors of your actual USMLE Step 1 SCORE.

USMLE WORLD and Kaplan are considered #2 and #3 respectively!

Default Want a higher score!

I worked with Dr Harish Malik for sometime for step 1 & I felt that his method really makes things stick. His integrative & holistic approach are how real clinical situations present. His way of analyzing vignettes is genius! After a few sessions your perspective on how you read questions will change. Essentially this is what the steps are looking. Definitely recommend Dr. Malik vs. paying thousands on a board course which don't teach you test taking. Thats 1/2 the test!
