Does anyone have any advice on how to get started studying for the COMLEX and USMLE? I am a second year and what to get started early. What subjects should I start with? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

You are studying for USMLE and COMLEX with every lecture you attend and every chapter in the text you read. My suggestion would be to work hard in you course work, and try to learn for the long term. Personally, I made hand written or typed summaries of lecture transcripts/required reading that I used as "cram packets" before tests. These served me well in the 3 1/2 weeks I crammed for the USMLE.

Also, use review books along with course work so they will be familar to you at review time. Get First Aid now as it will help you focus on impt material for classes and help prepare you for the USMLE.

Good Luck
