    Hi guys I am going to be starting med school next year and I was wondering if you can recommend in terms of preparing for the USMLE. Is there anything that you suggest paying attention to ahead of time while studying things like that. OK thanx

    Learn everything well, even if you don't think it should be on the boards. Never memorize what can be understood in terms of fundamental themes and mechanisms; there are enough things that must be memorized.

    Worry about review books later.

    lord jeebus is right--for now your only goal is to learn the material (concepts especially) in your first two years of classes well, and don't blow off any topic completely. You could maybe buy review books for step 1 during your second year, but certainly not before that because they are only helpful if you have something to review.

    Learn Physio well. Anatomy is second priority.
