Hi, guys.......I'm a first year student from India. I would very VERY much like to receive some training in the US. In order to that I have to clear the USMLEs. Now, I was kinda hoping for some advice from you guys about how to go about cracking the Step 1, as a foreign medical student. In India, we follow a curriculum roughly based on the British system. Implications, anyone?
All are welcome to share their views, and any sort of advice is welcome (barring 'begin your studies by watching Janet Jackson at the Superbowl'). Thanks a lot!
