Hey guys

I am trying to get my study materials together and plan out my studying schedule, and I am trying to figure out how much time to devote to path since everyone says that this is a big portion of the test. So what proportion of Step 1 is actually path? (Is 30% to 60% a good range?) I'm thinking about devoting half of my studying time to path...what do you guys think about this...too much?

Thanks I don't know what I would do without u guys.

path is MAJOR but the step 1 has a lot of integrated questions like a path questions that leads into pharm/micro/biochem/anything else haha. not many "pure" pathology questions but i think if you work goljan rapid review HARD you'll do well on your test

The Step I integrates questions like nobody's business.

That is the key. Understanding, and being able to apply, principles will get you the high score...
