I think one of the things I did in the first two years that helps out on Step 1 was studying from review books. I've heard multiple preachy discussions on here about the evils of learning from review books, but I found them to be more than sufficient for my classes. The really nice thing, though, is that you are familiar with your review books when you go to study for Step 1. A great example was BRS Physiology. That's what I studied from during 1st year and when I had to study for Step 1, I was familiar enough with the book that I could read it in a day. Just my $.02theDr. said:Im a first year and was wondering how i can begin to prepare for boards right now -- is it even possible.
what books should I have in order to best prepare for the boards? thanks
