Hi, I am just wanting to know what I should use to study for these 2 shelves?

I heard to study Dr. M Buzzwords book for the shelf. Is that sufficient enough?

I hope you can help.

Thanks in advance

FIRST AID! Pharm is the only subject where you can answer 90% of the shelf questions from first aid. Trust me. Dont overkill yourself by trying to read dr.m's book.

i agree with agraphia. for path, if you're consistently doing well in Dr. k--a's class you'll be fine. otherwise, i'd focus on goljan and uwquestions.

I definitely agree with that one! Path was my 2nd best shelf.

Are the Robbins questions good practice if you can not afford usmleworld

you can't afford a 100 dollar 1 month subscription?

compared to UW, no they don't quite compare

Unfortunately, $100 is a lot to us impoverished people.

Anyway, Webpath is a very good source for questions, I haven't took the shelf but the site does prepare me for Dr.K..a's questions.

About the world subscription, can you share passwords with friends? And after you complete a test can you go back and take that same test over again.

no you can't share passwords, they monitor that stuff and you coudl get banned. look around forums though, there are some screenshots of questions, i had a set once but since i have a year subscription, i don't need it

Nope I can not afford $100US a month. So what are some other options for questions?

Ask around, people have older USMLE world question files.
