标 题: USMLE Step 1(246/99)—My experience
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Sat Nov 28 16:42:25 2009, 北京)

Test date:
August 31, 2009

Materials:
FA, Kaplan notes, Kaplan Qbook, Kaplan Qbank, UW Qbank, and NBME plus USMLE
sample CD.

Time:
1 year, 2-3 hours average everyday.

Strategy:
At first, I took a glance of the First Aid and sample CD, just to have some
general impression on the contents of Step 1. Then I reviewed the Kaplan
notes twice, and practiced Kaplan Qbook subsequently. In April, I took
practice on Kaplan Qbank( about 75% correct). And in mid June, I took UW
Qbank( about 75% correct). In the remaining days, I spent most of my time in
reviewing both the UW and Kaplan Qbanks. About one week prior to the test
date, I simulated the NBME(form1-4) and USMLE sample CD( about 85% correct).

Experience:
Kaplan series would be enough for the exam, most of the test contents would
be covered by them. So I strongly recommended them, expecially Kaplan Qbank.
It was very similar to the real exam, both in the content and style..
Compared with Kaplan Qbank, UW was a little difficult indeed, but not so
hard as other people estimated. I didn’t spend a lot of time on FA, though
a lot of former examinees gave it a great remark. It was much less concrete
than Kaplan notes. Maybe it did help a lot if you just want to pass the exam
. However, if you expect for a high score(such as 99), you definitely could
not count solely on FA. It might be useful for a glance prior to the exam.
In addition, NBME and USMLE sample CD were very useful for simulation, but
not just for practice.

Note:
Above is for reference only, maybe not suitable for everyone.

Best wishes for a great journey on the USMLE road!

Congs! It was well done!

I am an old CMG , going to take in 3 months, and would like to do UW Qbank
alone, do you think it's enough? Or should I do a quick review of the Kaplan
Qbank too.
Did you do NBME online, how close it is correlated to your final score?

My Target is not 99, but >90.

Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations.

I read average 2-3hours for almost one year, Kaplan almost twice, FA more
than 2 times, but still can not handle UW, only get 30-40% timed mixed.

I don't think 1 year x 2-3 hrs /day is enough for step one.

I got 238/99, I took 1 year and 2 months x 3-4 hr/week day and 7-8 hr/
weekend to accomplish.

Maybe Louzhu is smarter.

I think it depends. Someone can get 99 before they start to prepare the exam
. Whatever they read, they will get 99.Nobody can tell you what you should do, they can tell you what they did only. Remember in university, people study the same thing, someone get 99, someone get 60.You are only one know yourself better.That's the difference between different people.
