A couple questions about COMLEX/USMLE: 1. Hey all, I'm a first-year D.O. student looking to review just a little bit for both COMLEX/USMLE, just something like an hour or two per week on top of my normal studying. Has anyone else done anything like this? Half of you M2s are going to read this and tell me that I'm way too uptight and need to relax because I'm just a first-year and I should enjoy the free time while I have it. Well, that's great and all, but that isn't going to get me into a competitive residency, so I'm asking for real advice here. 2. Interestingly, while I'm sure this upcoming question has been asked a ton of times before, the search function doesn't appear to be coming up with the answer I'm looking for. Is there a general breakdown of questions on the COMLEX and/or USMLE? I've heard figures such as 30% physio and 20% path, but I'm curious to know if there's ever been a specific subject analysis and anyone has figured this out. That said, even if that info isn't available, can you guys tell me which areas are emphasized more over others? I know it'll be hard to study the systems-based stuff since I'm not a second-year yet, but I want to review some of the stuff I've already learned to keep it fresh. That said, here's what I've taken and am currently taking. What should I review? Completed: Gross Anatomy Biochem Genetics Physiology I and II (Part 1 ran through basics, while Part 2 ran through the normal parts of cardiovascular, lymphatic, reproductive, endocrine, GI, urinary, a bit of skin, and respiratory) Currently taking: Pathology Neuroscience Microbiology/Immunology (includes bacteriology, immunology, virology, mycology, and parasitology) 3. Last, I'm just asking for any general advice you would give to a first-year either regarding the COMLEX/USMLE or regarding getting into a future residency...I'm already a class officer and I'm working on a research project with publications slated to come out later on this year. That said, once again, I'm looking for advice other than "relax", because I've already heard that more than enough times, and trust me, I do my fair share of relaxing (more than most medical students, in my honest opinion). Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
