    MD3 Looking for Step 1 Prep Advice

    Advertisements



    I'm wondering if those who've passed step 1, even those who are senior semester students, think that going through Doctors in Training (because it's structured walk through the First Aid) while going through MD3 is a good idea. I mean, I'm already doing it now and I just began MD3 but I am a little worried because I started Kaplan QBank and was put off by the little amount of knowledge I have. I want to make sure I'm not wasting my time and doing the best review I can. I'm wondering if anyone has any advice. Thanks so much!

    Avoid the spammer. DIT is absolute gold. DIT + FA + UWorld (multiple times) = will do well

    I would like to add pathoma over Golijan pathology. Save Golijan for 2ck and use pathoma for step 1. DIT is great in Pharmacology chapter and immunology chapter in my opinion. Other then that just keep doing qbanks over and over.
    Thanks,

    STEP 1 [X] STEP 2CK [ ] STEP 2CS [ ] STEP 3 [ ]

    i never used qbanks but for qbanks like uworld and kaplan and such, can you go through the questions an infinite amount of times for as long as you have your subscription?

    I heard there was some sort of limit of going through questions with answers only three times. or something like that.

    you can go through them as many times as you want within the limited time (3mos, 6mos, 12mos)

    good to know. not sure why i believed that there was only a certain number of times you could go through the questions during your subscription time.

    i could have sworn people were selling partially used qbanks stating they had gone through the qbanks twice and that they were selling it at a discounted price because they were selling only one more pass through.

    perhaps i'll check the websites for the qbanks for clarification.
