SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) How much material from basic sciences/step 1 do you use during clinical rotations? Is a below-average tester going to have a hard time on the wards, or is it equally as hard for most people regardless? If you had to estimate, how much of that knowledge do you remember, and how much is needed to get by on the wards? Is it a good idea to review step 1 material every now and then? Or are the clinical rotations separate and distinct enough that you can just focus on the rotation itself?
