Please share your experiences, tips, guidance with us.
Am preparing for Step 1, I am not currently in school and am going back to work after 10yrs ( after mostly research work).
I am really finding it tough, but then I read about tips to pass the exam from the author of "step 1 made ridiculously simple" who is a German physician and took the USMLEs after 10yrs. He found it quite painful as I am.
the molecular/genetics biochem/ cell bio, I'm O.K. in bec. of the years I spent doing research....all the other stuff however anatomy, embryo, phara and patho, I am struggling with. But I am determined to get thru this and get a good score. Anyone has any advice to share?
I also just had a baby which is why I left the research feild bec.
Now my goals are
1. lose 30lbs
2. Match into a good residency program with great scores
3. Be a good role model for my kids
4. last but not least, learn to cook my husband's fav. dishes :)

Hey there, I plan on taking both COMLEX and USMLE towards end of May.

I've been reading 1 case out of Case Files: Micro and First Aid Cases almost everyday for couple weeks now. It's working really well because I'm seeing lot of the stuff that I have encountered before (and of course, I don't remember half of it). It's a good refresher and hopefully will make things easier to learn during dedicated study time.
