    Just wondering how everyone prepared for Step II. I've found now that I'm in clerkship with very few formal didactic sessions and a lot of scutwork and long hours that leave little time for actual education, I'm worried about how much I'm really learning of what I need to know for the step. I'm sure everyone else has similar problems, so I'm wondering how you tackled this?

    Call me crazy but I kinda miss the structured classroom environment of basic sciences, as then you had plenty of time to study. I scored very well on the step 1 by working my @$$ off but now try as I might, I just don't have the time to do that anymore.

    This post is a good place to start your studies.

    You can add Step 2 Secrets for high yield review.

    One thing I will say is that USMLE World is by far the best tool to use for this test. I am not saying this merely because it is the consensus here; it is because it is the truth. The explanations cannot be beat. They present material in the explanations in a board-friendly way. Try to do this bank twice, versus wasting your time with another bank. Use a book to supplement UWorld. NOT the other way around.
