Some days ago I set for the Step 1 exam.
I am thanking many people in this group for answering my questions and helping me.
Meanwhile waiting for my result, I have some advice for the new step 1 taker:
✨ FA-UW-P are more than enough for the exam
✨Youtube channel like DirtyMedecine, speedypharma were of help +++
✨NBME try to do them all
✨Correct your UW and NBME mistakes: that’s a MUST
✨Have an exam date when starting.
✨Have a plan for your study.
✨Don’t be shy to postpone your exam: better do it well than fail.
✨Do at least 3 exams of 280 questions in real exam conditions.
✨Try to read rapidly FA before the exam and your notes (rapid read not a study)
✨Try to have a whole day of rest before the exam with family/friends not alone to avoid stress.
✨Try to have GOOD SLEEP BEFORE EXAM.
✨Exam day: Predetermined breaks and healthy food.
The exam is doable if you studied well concepts
