    My advice would be to start First Aid & UWorld right now. Do them both ASAP, and also go through a Patho resource like Goljan or Pathoma properly (not in an "incomplete" manner as you mentioned in your post).

    Thank you very much for your prompt reply!!
    also do let met know which qbanks i should start after that and in what order?
    ( i have to still complete my internship for the month of august during which i will do first aid and pathoma/goljan...as u have suggested, so the 3 months of dedicated time i can give will be in the months of sept oct and november..likely to take my exam in december.)

    If you think you have time for more than 1 Qbank, you should start with Kaplan or USMLE Rx, but definitely complete all of UWorld before your exam.

    Disclaimer: I have not yet taken USMLE Step 1.

    If you really don't know where to start or don't have a very strong foundation I think DIT was helpful for me. It got me over 240.

    Hey I have a question if I may ask. What topics do you think are covered best in DIT that helped you during the exam? Thanks

    That's honestly tough to say specifically which topics since it covers pretty much all of first aid. One thing I really liked was the quiz at the beginning and end of each lecture. I think they really helped reinforce the information for me. Also I was a big lecture person through the first two years (watching the recordings not actually attending lecture). I also used sketchy micro, pathoma, goljan audio tapes for car rides and workout, and uworld - didn't even get half way through :(

    I was thinking about doing anatomy, biostat/ethics and psychology from DIT since these are the only things I have t touched yet. What do you think? and thanks for replying.
