    MCCQE1 Study Advice

    Advertisements



    Which books are recommended to study for MCCQE1? I plan to write it in the fall.

    I saw there are several versions of 'Toronto Notes'.

    Is the best one to get the Toronto Notes Medical Student Guide 2010?

    Thanks!

    Toronto Notes - 2011 Edition for the 2011 version or

    Amazon.com: The Toronto Notes for Medical Students 2010 (9780980939729): ***** D. Baxter, Gordon G. McSheffrey: Books

    for the 2010 version

    as long as it's around $171.00 and about 1400 pages long, you have the right book

    Hello all,

    I've been searching this forum and have been unable to find the answers to some of my questions re: LMCC I (QEI).

    I think I have a pretty good grasp of how to study for the multiple choice section and what resources to use, but I'm a little lost when it comes to the Clinical Reasoning (short answer) component.

    Can someone elaborate on the Clinical Reasoning component of the exam? I've read abt how its structured and all, but can someone share their first-hand experience/impression abt this section? What was the most challenging part about it. What is the best way to prepare for it? Do we have to know the drug dosages/trade names?

    Thank you!

    no, you don't need to know dosing, that's explained on their website....if you've taken Step 3 and English is your native language you will be find. They are short answer questions and there's nothing really challenging about them, they are straightforward. Either use USMLE World to study or you can get the cheap Canada QBank to give you an idea of what they are like.

    Aha....yes I probably should've read their website more closely...thank you. I have written step 1 and 2, not step 3 (yet...will do soon).

    I was debating btwn the Qbanks, b/c I used UWorld a few months ago for the step 2, so I don't know if I want to use that again, cuz I'll remember some Qs....and that won't be beneficial. I also tried Kaplan briefly for the step 2 and hated it....the way Qs were worded and everything. That brings me to the Canada Qbank.....I've only heard terrible things abt it....how bad the grammar is etc. So, knowing what you know now, what Qbank would you recommend.

    For all those who have used the Canada Qbank and passed/done really well on the QEI...how do the Qs in the Qbank compare to the actual thing? Also, how predictive is your performance on the Qbank of your performance on the actual exam??
