Default Sketchy vs usmlesimple vs Boards and Beyond

Hi everyone. I am looking for study materials for Step 1 and currently debating between Sketchy videos, usmlesimple, and Boards and Beyond videos. Would one or the other be more useful/better in Micro and Pharm? Or should I just go ahead and study all of them? Would really appreciate any input. THanks!

Sketchy and Boards and Beyond are good IMO.

Hi! Can you tell me how you used the videos especially Boards and Beyond? Did you watch them kindof like Pathoma where you follow the topic and annotate on FA? Or did you use it more like as a review after reading an FA chapter?

Definitely, do use all of them. You want to be frugal about the amount of resources used.

I have heard great things about BB and sketchy, however, they are two very different material with different teaching methods, you might want to see a few trial videos to see if sketchy is good for you since it is super visual. I liked sketchy since it fits my study methods but again it isn't for everybody.

Also, not to add more to your confusion but for me lecturio was great as well, definitely should check out some of their free videos.
