USMLE step 1. How do people prepare for it?
By going to the USMLE/COMLEX Step 1 forum on SDN. Check it out sometime.
I've heard that taking a rusty piece of barbed wire and jamming it up your urethra is the very best way to prepare for USMLE step 1. You should try it and tell us how the test goes.
I knew that, I was just testin' ya.
I memorized first Aid cold and did just fine.
Did you use "just" First Aid?
I started out trying to use a ton of books, but by the end I was using just FIRST AID plus whatever i wrote in the margins from the other books i used. I would suggest only using other books apart from FIRST AID when u are reviewing a subject that u don't understand/know very well. But if you feel fairly comfortable with a subject stick with FIRST AID. Plus, of course, do as many questions as you can (ie kaplan, usmle, books, etc). I think the questions are very very important. I ended up scoring fairly well but (well above the national average (217 I think) and a good bit above my school's average (227)). Good luck to all. I know I did not offer and miracles or anything but I figured one more opinion couldnt hurt.
on second thought....you might need an additional book on behavioral science. I dont remember FIRST AID covering that very well...and those are easy questions that you dont want to throw away.
I went through FA & made flashcards for everything in there and then memorized all the flashcards (this is not as easy to do as one might think). also concurrently did 10% of Qbank so I could get used to taking a computer test.
