I'd benefited quite a bit from posts here and at other forums. I hope this
will become useful to future STEP1
takers. I will keep it short, and will just highlight the high yield points.

In general, most questions were straightforward, and I would say >80% of my
questions were in First Aid
some where. Every word in FA is IMPORTANT. Did I say important?! Look at and
memorize even the small(est)
prints, and the things you may not think are important may show up on your
exam (that happened to me).
Know it cold, cold, cold.

Question stems for the most part were long. I am a slow reader. I was able
to manage to save 20 minutes to
look over each block because I read the last sentence of each question first,
and know what they are asking and go
backwards like that. Most of the time you will find that they give you
extraneous information that are at most
loosely relevant to the questions (information that you don't need and won't
help you in answering the
questions anyway).

How I studied (disclaimer: I haven't received my score obviously): I started
studying in mid-May when classes
ended. The only two materials I heavily relied on were FA and Goljan audio.
Goljan (either audio or book) is a
must. There were countless times I felt I knew the answer only because
Goljan mentioned it. I also used his
book, though didn't read it cover-to-cover like most people did. I just
followed it along while listening to the
audio. In regards to FA, I had a total of 3 passes through the book. My
goals for each pass were: Round 1:
understand what the heck book is saying. Round 2: Be able to recall 70% of
the book. Round 3: Hopefully,
learn the things I didn't retain during the first two rounds. I think 3
passes through FA is sufficient. I've heard
great things about webprep, but I didn't get a chance to use it. I think I
would if I had more time.

Good luck to future takers.
