I have heard from several 3rd and 4th year medical students that if they could go back and change one thing about their boards studying, they would do lots more questions (like Q bank, Board simulator, etc..)

So far, I have been using questions as my primary resource for studying(supplemented with a few *key* books, like First Aid and Lippencotts pharm). Questions seem to be the only thing I can stand doing for any length of time without getting bored.

Any thoughts on this approach? Has anyone done the same thing and done very well? :confused:

i'd love to know this as well...after 2 years of medschool i am so burnt out i cant remember anything just by reading it anymore. i prefer to study old questions too. i have all the kaplan material and all the BRS review books, but im afraid i'd waste my time. (read a page forget a page...)
