    Usmle world

    Advertisements



    hey all just a quick question.

    I am currently entering Med3 and I am seriously considering subscribing to usmleworld. Is the 3rd semester too soon? Is the subscription worth the $.

    any feedback would be appreciated

    You do not need UWORLD in your 3rd semester. UWORLD is by far the best tool to use for Step 1 study IMO. You still do not know the majority of the information that will be asked of you by UWORLD so you will be wasting time and money. Save UWORLD for when you are studying for the boards. Spend your time learning the material do questions from Robbins Path review and should be ready to go come board time. Also UWORLD questions are hard doing them now, without the majority of information you will get disheartened. good luck

    DON'T DO IT! It's a great tool to study for the Step 1. If you do it now, you won't have a fresh look at it come time to Step 1 study.

    you will never be able to handle uworld q's in med3. 20-30% of the material will be based off all the material u learn in med 3. 50-60% will be from MED4.

    MLE world is great for shelf exams. You can also use it in med4 the entire semester. (pathphysio for ICM, path for path, etc) If you want, buy a month subscription before the end of each med1 through 3 semester to start practicing for shelf exams. You'll see your scores go up if you do.

    actually i used UW in basic science and saw a dramatic increase in my shelf exam scores since i started implementing it in 2nd semester for only physio to all subjects by 4th semester. i'd recommend it

    USMLE world and FIRST AID RX, Cases book in the library helps big time. After
    you learn a concept go through the index and answer a question on it.
    Don't just blindly learn and memorize the concepts.

    QUESTIONS QUESTIONS ARE KEY

    I thought Uworld was great to do starting med 3. Its a great learning tool. Dont do it and just memorize the answers. Do it to understand the material. I also so a dramatic rise in my shelf scores after starting world. When I was reviewing world for the step, its not like I had memorized the answers. I had a better understanding of the material and i felt like I actually got more out of them.

    Would it be too early to use in Med 1?
