    "Special Tecniques ! "

    For those friends who are asking me to tell me some special techniques to ace the boards, believe me that there are no such special techniques.
    I want anyone going for the boards to come with a very positive attitude and have confident in him/her. My theory when i sat to study for Step 1 was that if only a single person can get 99, i can also get at least the same if not more than that.

    My seniors broke step 1 99 barrier in 1999, since then 20-25 people have touched 99 .

    Step 2 99 barrier has now also been broken this June(thanks to a decrease in 3-digit score for 99) and till today we have 3 with step 2 99s (these people incidently also have 99 in step 1)

    As for the books to refer, Kaplan is a MUST for both step1 & 2. You dont have to take the whole Kaplan course (which i think is too costly). Borrow the books from someone who has gone thru it (this is what i did) or order the books from kaplan. Even if somebody is reading kaplan thoroughly (thoroughly in its real meaning), he is going easily for 85-90 for sure. For 99 u have to consult some books other than Kaplan.
    This exam is a standardized exam and contains everything in equal proportions. If someone is telling u after the exams that he got a tough one, it means that he had some weakness in that particular subject.

    Another thing that i want people to realize is that one of the most important thing is to get through the process as soon as possible. I graduated in Sept 2002 and started studying for step 1 in Sept 2002, gave my Step 1 on 19 March and Step 2 in July this Year. So i hope that people will realize this fact and get thru these steps as soon as possible.
    The mean studying time ( if u r studying 6-8 hrs per day) in my view is and should be 5-6 months. Now it depend on u that how will u manage this. My experience is that if some body is studying 1-2 yrs for step 1, when he will look back and calculate the time spent in preparation, he will find out that the time period spent in studying was the same (5-6 Months).

    Please go for a good score and not for 99 specifically. Those going for 99 will spend a lot of time getting thru the steps as it will take them a hell of a time to get satisfaction that now they ready for that.

    "89 in one year is better than 99 in 3 yrs."

    I will write about the specific books that i used to study for step one in near future as nowadays i am busy in paperwork required for the process (i think that giving steps was very much easier than this paper work)

    Good Luck !

    Sadly i had to do it myself !

    I posted the same message about a month ago and sadly got no replies. Either people dont want to help or they simply dont know.

    So after getting no hope from this site, i went for what i always do i.e. go for it urself.

    Now i have found out about 30 H 1b surgery sponsoring programs !

    If somebody wants the list email me ur add. at this address :

    [email protected]

    and i 'll help u out.

    and dont forget to share some useful information that u may have

    take care

    as far as I know

    Hi Sameer

    As far as I know in order to get an H-1 visa you need to have done Step3 - than you are eligible for licensing and also you can bill out-patients. Residents take their Step 3 during their first year in a residency program. FMG have to take it by the end of the second year. Some hospitals will offer you H-1 visa even without Step3, some only with it, some don't sponsor H1 visas for "initial training at the institution" even with Step3 . So it varies from place to place, but seems like you have done great job researching this topic. How did you go about it - someone was asking me the same question but for OB/Gyn?

    Good luck with things. With these high scores you are all set - you should be so happpyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!
