SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi everyone, I'm about to start my MS2 year in a month, so obviously I'm starting to think about Step 1. I'm wondering if I can at this point at least start making a plan about which materials I need to get through and when I should start studying. I know very little about how to approach the exam, other than that First Aid and UWorld are absolutely necessary and that there are certain other review books that are highly recommended. I also heard about the Faus method, but am not sure if that's the way to go. Is there a definitive thread somewhere on SDN about this? I keep seeing different threads about people's study plans but I have no idea which one is sound and what I should go with. I'd appreciate any advice/ links to threads that are useful. Thank you in advance!
