Hello, I am currently researching my options to study medicine in Europe and I have a few questions regarding the step 1 exam.How do you go about preparing for this exam if your faculty members didn't write it? To whom would you speak to for mentorship or guidance?Do you only prepare through self study? Lectue notes, Kaplan, etc...If the program that you are studying does not resemble the American 'problem based learning' approach, would this be an obstacle for the step 1 preparation?Is it expected that the foreign medical school student scores higher on the step 1 compared to US candidates?
