Hi there I have a few questions on the COMLEX test that I hope to get feedback on.

It seems for the COMLEX that the big hitters are drugs, bugs, OMT and path. Am I correct? I am planning on beginning to study hard with a few on my classmates come january and I wanted to know how far in advance people studied and what materials they used.

The materials I have are:
1) First AId
2) buzzwords for the boards
3) step up
4) OMT review
5) clinical vignette series

i also have the 2001 kaplan series and BSS series.
it seems to me like doing lots of practice tests
is also key in doing well. anyone have experience
with the Kaplan Q bank program? also, step up just came out with a clinical case book.
