    Hi everyone,hope you're doing good
    Im already resident in my home countrty,but i intend to join this residency program in a gulf country for that i need steps.
    I wanna ask u whether one source is enough for preparation,i got a book "usmle step1 secrets" of ELSEVIER SAUNDERS,its the best seller, does anyone know it? Is it good and how much time do i need? Taking in consideration that ive been preparing for my residency for 2 years(means that i already got some experience)
    Another question pls, in case i got a low score in step 1 can i do it again to ameliorate the score?

      If you get a low score you won't have a chance to improve it. If you fail you'll get a second attempt.

          One book will not be enough. In addition to pure reading, you need to do A LOT of practice questions. I.E in the thousands. I have never heard of someone doing too many. Use resources, such as USMLE and Kaplan Qbank. A board review, such as Doctors in Training, would not be a bad idea either
