*Enrollments for June Classes already started and will be open for the whole of May, 2009. If you are interested in enrolling please click on this link.  Thank You

Hello everyone, I will now be accepting applications for the April batch of Askdoc’s USMLE Step 1 Prep Course which will start April 1, 2009 and end on September 30, 2009. This is the third batch of enrollees for this prep course. As you may well be aware, the first batch started last September, 2008. No fees were collected, however, the applicants were required to have failed Step 1 at least once. The first to take the exam from that batch has passed with a score of 97/232. You can read more about him here.

The second batch started on January 26, 2009 and currently with 7 members. They paid a fee of $100 but this time around, everyone was accepted but on a first come, first served basis. Currently 4 are doing very well and 3 are doing poorly, not in terms of scores but in terms of progress. You need to be committed to finishing the course, and in order to do that you need to show up. Therefore some modification to the programs need to be done which I’ll discuss later.

Due to my experience with the first and second batch, I believe I have to describe the course in more detail including expectations and the amount of work needed so there is no misunderstanding.

1. The course covers USMLE Step 1 which is seven subjects all in all. The course is 6 months long. Therefore telling me that you do not have enough time to finish 1 subject in 4 to 6 weeks means you won’t have time to finish the course period. Therefore please be ready to invest the time needed to do the course. Nothing less than 4 to 6 hours a day at least 5 to 6 days a week is needed. If you are unable to commit this time, then this course will not help you.

2. The reason you would want in on this course is that it will teach you how to prep for the USMLE in the proper way. Therefore you must be prepared to follow instructions. You would be surprised at how many people insists on following their own methods of studying rather than those outlined in the course. If you will not follow the course’s review methodology, why bother enrolling?

3. If you ask my current students, proper methodology increased their scores dramatically. In fact, a few chapters into the course, some students have a tendency to start wanting 99’s whereas just a few weeks before all they wanted was to pass the exam. However, enrolling in the course does not automatically raise your scores. YOU STILL NEED TO STUDY. I cannot magically put information in your head, only you can do that. Since this is an online course, I cannot stand behind you and monitor whether you are studying or not or force you to study. Although there are quizzes and progress reports in the online course, I cannot force you to take the quizzes or write down your progress reports. So if you are not ready to really study, then this course will not do you any good.

4. You need to give me feedback. Per experience, the course methodology works fine for most people, however, for some people they need adjustments. Therefore, giving me regular feedbacks about how you are faring will help so that I can adjust your study methodology to suit you better. This is done by doing the quizzes. If you fail to achieve the required score then we need to review your study methodology and adjust them. Also, I can see where you tend to err in answering questions and I can help you change that tendency so you tend to score higher.

5. You have to attend the weekly online chat. The weekly online chat is set up so you not only have an idea of how others are doing, but also to discuss any questions you have about the review process itself. Since an online course has no formal “class”. This is a good substitute.

6. One on one chat is only available on a case-to-case basis. This is simply because of time constraint. The participant however, can pm me in case they have individual problems.

If you have read my post, you will know that there are 3 phases in the typical study plan. The “Learning” phase, the “Mastery” phase and the “Test Preparation” phase.

The learning phase is where you try to learn all the different concepts tested in USMLE Step 1. When reading, you can attempt to draw a mental picture of what you are reading to understand the concept or you can repeatedly read through the material to memorize it. In learning phase, your purpose is to understand the concept and not to memorize them.

The mastery phase, is where you concentrate on memorizing and being able to recall medical concepts in detail and at the right speed needed to be able to answer questions in 1 minute or less.

The test preparation phase is where you train yourself to answer USMLE type questions and to be able to sit through an 8 to 9 hour long exam.

There are also 3 types of activities that you use in the 3 phases. Knowledge Acquisition (KA), Knowledge Recall (KR) and Test Prep(TP).

KA includes all activities that tries to put medical knowledge into your knowledge bank (KB). This includes mostly reading and listening to lectures.

KR includes all activities that tries to improve your ability to retain and recall the information the information in your KB. This includes repeatedly reading through the course materials, using flashcards, answering questions and doing word association drills with study mates. It is rare for people to repeatedly listen to lectures when doing KR. They usually prefer to write down notes for the lectures and repeatedly read through them instead.

TP includes all activities that improves your ability to do better in USMLE type MCQ’s. This includes simulating USMLE exams, speed building, increasing stamina, etc.

Learning phase usually involves only KA activities. It is the most variable in terms of length of time needed to accomplish. It depends on how much you already know in the first place. Even fresh grads differ in the medical concepts they have retained even if they graduated together More so for people who are older grads.

People may wonder what it means to have learned something as opposed to have mastered something which is what the Mastery phase is all about. Well to have learned a concept means you understood the concept, while to say you have mastered a concept means you know it in such a depth and will be able to recall it fast when needed

To illustrate, for example the coagulation cascade. During the Learning phase, you may have read all the details of the coagulation cascade, but to consider that you have learned it, you probably need to know it this way.

  1. It is a series of enzyme conversion that results in clotting
  2. The final step is the conversion of Fibrinogen to Fibrin
  3. This is accomplished by Thrombin
  4. There is a common pathway
  5. There is an intrinsic and extrinsic pathway
  6. The two pathways converge on Factor X before forming the common pathway
  7. The extrinsic pathway involves Factor VII and Tissue factor
  8. The intrinsic pathway triggered by Factor XII triggering multiple other factors
  9. Extrinsic pathway measured by Protime
  10. Intrinsic pathway measured by activated Partial Thromboplastin Time

If you do not know most of the points above, you cannot consider yourself to have “learned” the concept even if you’ve read all of the above or even more details.

During the mastery phase, you should know the concept in even greater detail and be able to recall them really fast. To illustrate.

  1. You need to know the steps in greater detail. For example the intrinsic pathway includes Factor IX and factor XI. You also need to know that there are factors that act as catalyst to the reaction (Factor V and VIII) and factors that moderate or inhibit the reaction (TFPI, anti-thrombin and APC). These are just some of the additional details you need to memorize and be able to recall to consider that you have mastered the concept
  2. You need to be able to recall facts much faster. For example, knowing that PTT measures intrinsic pathway and the factors in the intrinsic pathway will allow you to deduce the factor deficiency that causes abnormal PTT. However, it may take time for you to recall the facts if this is how you retained the information. You may need to memorize the actual factors that can cause abnormal PTT and protime directly. This is done during the mastery phase.

Of course, you need to know more than the above to truly master the concept of coagulation cascade, but the above will suffice for illustration purposes.

The Mastery Phase is composed of both KA and KR activities.  Your main purpose here is to memorize, retain and recall tested medical concepts. You still do a lot of reading for KA. However the type of reading material you use will differ. It is easier to learn concepts by using narratives. Hence textbooks are more effective. But it is easier to memorize bulleted lists, tables and illustrations as well as recall information that way.

To illustrate using the coagulation cascade. It is easier to memorize and remember the concept using a combination of illustration and bulleted lists. However, trying to learn the coagulation cascade using only illustrations and bulleted lists is a challenge. It is better to use narratives that explain the whole concept first and once you’ve learned and understood the concept, use illustration and bulleted lists to memorize them for easier recall.

A reason for using tables concerns concepts that you need to differentiate from each other. It is a known fact that an important key to scoring high in the USMLE is the ability to know the key difference between diseases rather than memorizing the key features of a disease. For example, in the exam if you get a case of inflammatory bowel disease, your problem will be if you are dealing with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative colitis. A well-constructed question will first present features common to both and just add one or two features usually buried in between the other features that distinguishes one from the other. If you had memorized the features of each diseases either reading them in text form or in bulleted lists, you will have to review in your head, the features one by one and try to sort out the features that distinguishes the two. This not only eats up a lot of time, but you could even wind up with the wrong answer. If you had memorized it as a table that differentiates the two, your ability to answer that question correctly and fast have just increased exponentially. Ditto for example a case of lung CA. A table differentiating between, Squamous Cell Ca, Small Cell Ca, Bronchioalveolar CA, etc. is a better way to retain and recall the data than just from a plain bulleted list or even a full narrative.

    Hi sunshine,

    As of now there are still 2 positions open. Although somebody already applied for one of the positions, she has not paid her enrollment fees yet so is not considered to have finish enrollment. Please read the terms and conditions for enrolling. You must be ready to study and put in the necessary effort in order to succeed.

    Hello,
    I am interested in joining your study group. But the only problem is that I want to take Step 1 in July. So, I have only 4 months instead. Would it be reasonable to join your group or is it better to study alone?

    Many thanks.

    Hi flipper,

    There are 2 things that will determine whether 4 months is enough. First, how good you are and what score you are aiming for. To illustrate, for the 2nd batch which started last February, only one can finish in 4 months and have a reasonable chance of scoring high 90’s or even 99. However, if he will use all 6 months, his chance for a 99 is very high. He even have a chance of surpassing my Step 1 score which is 99 / 256. 2 other will need at least 5 months to reasonably score above 90. Although both have chance of getting 99, too. The others need a full 6 months to score well. So again, depends on your ability and the score you are aiming.

    As to joining the group, how fast you go is up to you. You’ll need 3 revisions to have a reasonable chance of getting high 90’s or 99. At top speed that could be done in 3 months. Again depends on your ability and time commitment. You can also start studying after enrolling and not wait for April, that’ll give you 4.5 months.

    I always tell my students to schedule their exam when they want but to be ready to postpone when their NBME is not favorable. Settling for a 90 when a 99 is just 3 weeks away is a waste, don’t you think?

    Hi,
    Thank you for your response. About 2-3 years ago I planned to sit for USMLE but due to family problems did not fully commit to it. At that time I read about half of the material. Micro, Anatomy and partially physio, behavioural science. I studied for a about 2 month. Then we moved from country to country. All my books were left at different country, so I did not continue to prepare.

    Now I decided that I have to finish it. All my books now with me.

    Last year I did Kaplan diagnostic test. My score was 45%. But honestly I do not remember a lot from what I read 2 years ago. My aim is high 90’s.
    I will be working part-time starting from middle May, or may be earlier. Part-time job for only 2 days per week.

    So, what would be your advice on it? Could you take me into your study group?

    Many thanks.

    Hi flipper,

    Your story is all too familiar. Details may be different but problems are the same. Half my students have the same or even worse stories. As you may be aware, I’ve divided the review process to 3 phases. Learning phase, Mastery phase and Test prep phase. In your case you did not finish your learning phase and anything you have not mastered, tends to be lost and forgotten much faster.

    My main problem is that if you haven’t completed your learning phase, then you may need the whole 6 months to catch up. Diagnostic test score of 45% is very, very low. Anyone who has finished a decent learning phase should be able to do around 60%. Mastery phase is to ramp that up to 70-80% (that’s good for 90’s or even 99’s). Therefore, I doubt you can finish in 6 months, even if you go full time. In my own prep, I spent 4 months in learning phase and 3.5 months in Mastery and Test prep phase. And that’s full time. (8 hrs. a day) My student in the second batch who I said can do it in 4 months is a 3rd year medical student. Basic science is very fresh in his mind and he doesn’t need any learning phase.

    It is your choice whether you want to go on your own or you want to join the course. Some people like haitham (630 on NBME, USMLE results pending) and saba (93/233) were able to do well on their own after following my advise(see past comments). However, if you do decide to join the course, it will already be a given that you may have to spend a few months on learning phase before going on to the mastery phase. Which means your program will be different from the rest of the batch who will be on mastery phase from day 1.

    People who join the course are those who tend to need more intense guidance. Otherwise, most of the principles of studying employed in the course can be found in my blog and other write-ups. Although you have to do your own implementation though. If you want to read more about the experiences of the current batch of students. Go to my prep forum at http://forums.askdoc-usmle.com. Register so you can access the site used by my students. Read their prep journal to get a better idea of how my students feel about the course. Their posts are not edited by me, so they are free to write anything they want, both positive and negative.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to announce that the April Class is full and that I am no longer accepting applicants for this class. For the 4 others who have applied but have not remitted their payment, you will need to apply to the next class as all 10 positions are now taken. The next class will tentatively be in June (When most of the February class plan to take the exam) with enrollments in May. Watch for the announcements (In case there is a big delay in the February class taking the exam, then the next class may be moved to July.)

    For those who have been accepted and have registered at the prep site and forum, please log on for instructions. The forum is where you get your instructions while the prep site is where the courses are located. If you just paid or enrolled, wait for your email. We start on April 1, 2009. It’s not April Fool’s day as far as your prep is concerned. 🙂 It’s serious business.

    Hi 4driven,

    Actually you can join the waiting list in case students get transferred to later classes. This usually happens when they are old grads and have inadequate learning phase or they suddenly have problems attending the current course due to personal reasons. Two students from February class have requested to be transferred to June class, so this is not new. there are a few applicants who have signed up for the waiting list though. I will tell you where you are on the waiting list if you sign up.

    Now to contact me privately, register in my forum at http://forums.askdoc-usmle.com. Use the pm system to contact me. I am listed as askdoc.

    Hi sijo,
    I am sorry, but the April class is currently full. I have a total of 4 people in the waiting list for this class. If they cannot be accommodated which seems to be case, then they will apply for the June batch. Registration for that batch will start sometime in May. I have to limit the class size, since I have to maintain the quality of the course itself.

    Hi Smitha,

    The next batch starts June and applications will start by next week. However, I will probably be accepting only 5 students this time around. This is because most of the April batch are behind schedule. The February batch though will probably take the exam on time in July. Plus two students from the February batch have been transferred to the June batch, which leaves a maximum of 8 positions available if I eventually choose to fill up the batch. That will depend on how the April batch progress in the next few weeks. If enough catches up, then I may accept 8 students.I would like to remind people that 21 people tried to apply for the April batch of which only 10 were accepted. So please enroll early if you want a position. It is still first come, first served.

    hi ak123,

    The November class is currently full. Although I could probably crowd you in, however, it is also the 20th already and you have missed 2 lectures plus one chat session. I would suggest you take the January class because that is the better option for you. However, if for some reason you really need to be in the November class. Then I’ll try to fit you in, but you need to be in by Monday, November 23 the latest. Some November class students missed the 2nd lecture due to confusion with schedule, so a repeat lecture will be given to them this coming Wednesday, November 25, so you can catch up.

    I would like to enroll in the march class… How many students do you take at once. As I will not be able to make payment until march 1st. I really want to enroll in the course… My step 1 experience has been horrible. I have taken it multiple times and graduated in 2008. I felt prepared for the exam but my problem is I am not understanding what the test writter is asking or what the question is asking. I spent the past year studing the material with not luck. At this point I don’t know what to do… I have attended review courses with no luck.. I have tried to find a private tutor to see if it’s maybe my test taking skills but I have had not luck with that. So I am out of money and out of time.. At this time I felt like giving up until I came across your website and read Marlene story. It give me some encouragement. But still inside I feel like I am in this alone.. and I don’t know what direction or who to turn to for help.. This is mentally and spirutally draining for me… Any feedback will help me…
    Can you give me some feedback on what your study materials consist of or lecture material info.. I am willing to try anything at this point…

    HI kish,

    What you primarily learn in my course is How to Study the USMLE Step 1. There are a lot of good study materials out there. People study the same study materials and get scores ranging from failing to high 99’s. So the key to scoring high is not the study materials you used although using the right study materials are important. The key to scoring high or passing is learning how to study the materials and retain them. Everyone has weak points in their study habits and test taking ability. The key to improving that is identifying and mitigating or eliminating those weak points. This weak points could be poor memory, poor test-taking skills, poor analytical skills, etc. Some people believe, that there is one magic bullet that can solve all their problems and viola, they can do well in the USMLE. They could not be more wrong. Usually if you fail or score very low, it means you have a lot of weak points, not just one. You need to identify them one by one and address them. If each weak point pulls you down by just 2 to 3 percent. then 10 weak points can pull you down by 20 to 30 percent. Big enough to fail.

    Askdoc.

    Thanks for your feedback.. I will enroll in the course. I think I kind of know what the weak areas are but hopefully my weak areas will become more prevelant with this course. I wish I found out about this course prior to now. I am looking forward to doing what it takes to get through this exam.

    Hi Askdoc,
    I have been trying to set up my paypal account to register for you course. But I am having a difficult time trying to get the payment thru.. I don’t think it should be this difficult. Anyway I am trying to find out if you are showing payment on your end or if I am registered for the March course. It took me thru the financial info but I never returned back to your site or received anything showing confirmation of the payment or course.. I am trying to get this done my march 1st.

    Second, do I need any special equipment other than my computer to view the live lectures.. I might have a difficult time viewing the march 3rd lecture so I wanted to know if I could view it on a different date or at a earlier time on march 3rd. That is the only lecture that I will have a difficult time with.. I know all the lectures are important and I don’t want to miss but I have a prior committment that I am trying to get out of.

    Hi Kish,

    Thanks for telling me. I did receive your application, but no confirmation from PayPal of payment. In fact I have received 6 other application all without confirmation of payment from PayPal. I may need to check if the PayPal payment system has a problem, since by this time I expect half the applicants to have enrolled already. Anyway there is another way of paying via PayPal. You send money to my account using my PayPal email which is payment@askdoc-usmle.com. Just write down your pertinent info with the payment (Name, etc.) so I can identify you. Actually, that is how the earlier batches paid for their enrollment before I learned how to use the PayPal “Pay Now” button.

    The live lectures are handled using a virtual classroom software. So there is a Powerpoint presentation and audio. Although video is available, I have not turned it on due to possible bandwidth problems of users. Not all have high-speed internet. I usually recommend headphones. You have the option to use microphones, but it should be used with headphones so no echo will happen when your microphone picks up sounds coming from the speakers. Usually only my mic is turned on, while the others use the chat system to communicate with me. That way questions will be written down and I can answer questions as they are listed in the chat and do not miss somebody’s question during the chat session.

    The lectures are done on schedule by batches. The 1st Lecture is “How to Master the USMLE Step 1”. And you are right, it is a very important lecture. Although most of the instructions on how to study the different subjects is in the subsequent 5 lectures, the first lecture explains why you have to study the way I have outlined. When I started the course, my biggest problem is getting students to follow the study methodology as outlined. Usually what happens is they follow some of it and happily ignored the rest, which will not do. Those who followed instruction more closely tend to do better than those who have not. So the lectures were set up to explain why you need to study a certain way so that more people will follow. For example, why you need to do at least 3 revisions and why each revision is different and done in a different way. Why you use different study materials in different phases of your review and what weak points and problems are being covered in each of this revision which requires you to study a different way. Why you need to finish your review within 6-8 months or you risk doing poorly in the exam. The actual methodology is discussed in detail in the other 5 lectures, but the reasons why they must be done that way is tackled in the first lecture. If you are good at following instructions without knowing the rationale why then taking the first lecture with the May class may not be a problem with you. But if you are the type who need to know why you need to do things a certain way before you will do things a certain way, then my suggestion is to attend the lectures in the order they were scheduled.

    Hi Askdoc,
    Thanks for your immediate response.. Before I viewed your reply.. I was able to use paypal this morning in which my payment was received and I was directed back to your website which stated that the application ws accepted. So I assume you have received everything so I can start on March 1st. (money and application)

    2nd, I will just have to make sure I am there on Wednesday pm. I am in the mtn time zone so I believe my time will be 8-9:30 if your time zone is 7-8:30. Anyway I know May is available but I want to stay motivated and I feel like if I waited until may I will just loose focus.. This has been a long hard journey and I know I need help. I know it would difficult and challanging but I just did not think it would this bad for me..

    Askdoc,
    I have not receive any email instructions or directions for the March 1st course to date. So is there a special website I can obtain the information prior to the start of Monday’s course.
