you mean as in taking exams over the 2 years of basics in the style of USMLE questions? Or taking Shelf exams?
everyone who takes the USMLE will have had some sort of "special" training...whether it be taking exams geared to studying to the test, or taking a kaplan course, or doing USMLEW.
and like sree said, there is more at stake for a F/IMG than a AMG- the scores are what open doors for us- these doors are already open to AMGs- many don't even take step II until closer to graduation.
