Alright, I'm now starting second year which, in my school's compressed cirriculum, means I'm 9 months away from taking the Step 1. I'm trying to figure out when I should be reviewing what. Most people seem to say I should start studying 2-6 months in advance of the exam, but I don't really know what that means. How many hours a day should I expect to be putting in 6 months in advance of the test vs. 2 month in advance. Where should I start in terms of reviewing? Should I start with physio? Should I look at Christmas break as a vacation or a cram session? Anyone want to share their experiences?
