How to Start preparing for USMLE Step 1

on with 0 comments

1. Self-assessment. I think all of the experts agree that the first thing you need to do is take some sort of diagnostic test to see where your areas of strength and weakness are. Diagnostic tests are available from Kaplan, NBME, and a variety of other online sources.

2. Make a study schedule.  Lots of sample schedules are out there and links to them are included later in this notebook. BUT – please remember that these schedules were made by individual students and the schedules reflect those students’ individual circumstances. When you prepare your own study schedule, you must first look at your own diagnostic test results and prepare your schedule with more time allotted to weaker subjects, and less time to stronger subjects. Individual study pace also needs to be factored in, as some accomplish more per study day than others.
