Is there any study showing an average of how many hours per day do students usually take to study for Step 1?
(2) Mix it up. Don't just read first aid all day. Read first aid a bit, do some pharm cards, a qbank set, then more first aid, then a goljan lecture while running at the gym, etc. Maybe have an hour of group study/quizzing when you feel pretty done for the day.
Using this I was able to power through about 14h/day (probably more like 12.5 when accounting for meals/breaks) for 5 weeks which was plenty for me.
