    Hi guys - can anyone recommend a good USMLE book? I mean one that has lots of test questions and is not a purely strategizing book? Thanks!

    1) Buy First Aid for the USMLE Step 1.
    2) Look in the section that rates other review books. Buy those rated A.
    3) Memorize every single fact in First Aid.

    First Aid is the Bible of passing the USMLE. And if you are starting to study now for a May or June exam, you'll burn out. Cool it until the end of the semester, and then study for 4-6 weeks solid.

    Hi Mary the Med Student- thank you for the advice!! Actually, I'm starting as a first year in August so I have a while. I just read this awesome book by Thornborough (how to be a successful medical student) and they suggest getting a USMLE book to study for tests....or at least get a glimpse of how one should be studying for exams.

    Thank you! :)
