    I am looking for information about detailed timelines folks used successfully for USMLE/COMLEX studying. When did you start? How much time did you spend on specific topics? How did you decide?

    I found it helpful to take a diagnostic exam and see where you stand. This helps a lot and lets you see what your weakness and strengths are. Then from there you need to figure out when you want to take the course and how much time you want to prepare for it. Say 6 wks., then you allot your time for each subject, focusing more on your weakness. My weakness for ex. was biochem. I spent more time going into detail with that subject. Then I moved into pharm and path. Spending plenty of time with those maybe 10 days. A few days for anatomy, neuro et all. And then micro, immuno and behavioral was last for about a week. This is my perspective. So I hope this helps. :)
