Dear All, My background: I qualified and work in London, having finished med school 3 years ago. I've set a date for step 1 at the end of May - giving me two months to study, alongside reasonably quiet work commitments (40 hours a week) so am aiming to get through 6-8 hrs/ week day, and full weekends. Resources that I'm planning to use: First Aid - plan to cover 4/5 times - memorising rather than just reading (as much as poss) HY: Embry, Anat, Neuroat, Hist, also Cell and Mole bio (since this is such a long time ago for me) Lipencott's pharm and bioch BRS: Path, Phys, BehSci Micro: currently Lange, but may get Ridicously easy Otherwise: Will do NMBE questions much nearer the time. Q bank: Without reading and just to get into the swing, have been doing occasional questions: currently 800 down with 50% ave. Not encouraging, but with no study, room for much improvement (I hope). I'm loosely basing my study schedule on the 6 week residency info schedule. Will do that twice hopefully - once in 6 wks and again in 3. ___ My questions were: is this realistic - or too much info am realistically aiming for firstly passing, and if I manage to work well ~90 any other key resources I'm missing any other suggestions Thank you for any feedback. Being in the UK, there is a paucity of decent information on the steps.
