Hi,

I have heard that the "big three" topics tested on STEP 1 are Physio, Path, and Parm. Is this true?

Is there a percentage breakdown of how many questions are devoted to each topic?

Other than for OMT, would these percentages be similar for the COMLEX and USMLE?

Thanks.

For COMLEX you can look at <a href="http://www.nbome.org" target="_blank">http://www.nbome.org</a>

I think from there you need to click on NBOME examinations. It gives a breakdown kind of like what you're looking for, but it's more specific. For example, it list that 13-16% of cases on Step I are asymptomatic. Then a percentage for bleeding, pain, etc....

Hope this is what you're looking for.
