I would like to announce that Askdoc’s Method of USMLE Review for Step 1 is now available at my prep forum at http://forums.askdoc-usmle.com. As I promised to some of you before, it contains more or less the same instructions available to the participants in my prep course. It includes suggested alternate reviewers and q Books you could use for your review. If you have any questions about the review methods, feel free to post your questions there.

The prep course participants are currently revising pathology so only the pathology review methods are outlined. Once they’ve reached the other subjects, probably around 1st week of October, instruction for the other subjects will be posted there too.

The prep forum is currently limited to Step 1 and Step 2 CS only as it will take time before I can write up enough materials to fill them. However, one feature it has which members may like is a Groups section where members can form themselves into groups and have a place where they can do their group discussion and learning in privacy. Only group members can enter and post in their forum. They could also limit visibility of the forum to their own group. Groups wanting to have their own forum section should sign up at Askdoc’s USMLE prep forum and submit the names of all group members and the name of their group (which will the name of their forum under the Groups forum) via personal message to me. Please include if you want to keep it invisible to the public. Your group is good for 30 days. You can extend it twice at 30 days each time for a total of 90 days by sending me a personal message before the 30 days expire.

Small private groups are handy for discussing Step 1 concepts and even Step 2 CS cases.

    Very nice and comprehensive, i have one question though: I always see posts about prepping for the steps, how about you post something for some of us students doing basic science now 🙂 maybe “How to study for step 1 alongside basic science” because people always say the best way to prepare to the steps is to have a solid basic science, and as you know that “solid” basic science varies from school to school and some professors like to teach low yield and research materials so i would like to see a comprehensive study method for basic science too, thanks in advance

    Hi ace,

    Will work on that soon. I have been asked multiple times, via pm or email about that and have answered them individually before. But I will try to write a series of articles for medical students. There are two phases to preparing for the USMLE. The learning phase, which most accomplish during medical school and the review or mastering phase as I call it to prepare for the examination itself rather than learning the concepts. Most of my discussion concentrates on the latter as is obvious. But lot’s of times, those who have failed or scored low have problems in the learning phase and that is what is being corrected within the prep course in a case to case basis.

    Hi kamran,

    Unfortunately haven’t gotten around to writing a detailed plan on how to tackle that yet. In general, I recommend that you seek to understand the concepts rather than to be able to memorize every detail because it is hard to memorize and master what you do not understand. In the mastery phase you concentrate on memorizing and mastering the details as a separate process.

    Hi Gisella,

    Not all the books are available and they are online in my courses. They are not separate books that I sell. Part of the advantage about having them online is that I can update them in real-time and do any corrections needed. They are only available through the course since they are in HTML format. Some of my students have requested to have printed editions but that is not currently available, not even pdf versions.
