    There is a significant amount of behavioral science on the step I exam. About 10-20% of your test will be behavioral science questions.

    Embryology is poorly represented on the exam. I think I had all of 2 embryo questions.

    Embryo you can probably punt, but you'd be a fool to punt behavioral science for step I!

    I still have nightmares about the amount of behavioral science that I had on Step 1 in June. I did fine in the class (even though I hated most of it), but almost blew it off for the boards. Luckily, I was forewarned by some students from previous years and studied it enough to get by. Don't let it go! Get a good review book as boards approach. As for embryo, I can't remember much, if any, from Step 1. Still, it's good to know the basics and then build on that. Embryology was touched upon in my peds rotation and pediatrics shelf exam, especially cardiac. It was a topic that was embedded in our Gross Anatomy class and one that I didn't care for at the time, but seems much more interesting and frightening now that I have an embryo of my own developing...

    Get Barbara Fadem's BRS Behavioral Science review book. Know everything in that from cover to cover. I did and got an 86 on the "shelf".
