Members don't see this ad.
how did you go about taking both exams and how far apart did youtake them

which did you take first?

and was it reasonable to study for both at the same time

I have scheduled the USMLE for June 15th...one week after completion of COMLEX. I will take two days off and use the rest to hit hard some topics that I feel are underrepresented on COMLEX (behavioral, etc). ANy longer and I would forget things, I think.

I am studying for both at the same time, by studying USMLE review books and Savarese's OMT book(you will notice that there are not any/many COMLEX review books out there, for good reason...the material should be the same)

I have decided to schedule USMLE on 6/19. This allows 9 days between the exams. I plan on using this time to review as follows:

Day 1 - Path
Day 2 - Path
Day 3 - Phys
Day 4 - Pharm
DAy 5 - Micro/Immuno
Day 6 - BioChem
Day 7 - Behavioral/Stats
Day 8 - Anatomy/Histo/Embryo
Day 9 - General review/Relax

I am a little worried about forgetting some of the information that I studied for COMLEX, but hopefully these 1-day reviews will be enough to refresh the material.
