Sound Advice for your USMLE Step 1 Prep

Kendra Campbell:

1. Make a schedule, and try to stick to it …I usually go as far as creating a schedule down to the hour

2. Get up every day at a similar hour.

3. Don’t forget to schedule in “fun time” or time off from studying to relax. This is incredibly important, and will prevent the dreaded “burn-out.”

4. Do questions. This is a great way to learn. Use an online question bank, or one of the thousands of prep books. And don’t just look at the correct answers. Actually figure out why you got the question wrong (and even right), and learn from your mistakes.

5. Don’t study what you already know.

6. Caffeine is your friend. Never forget your friends.
