        Note: I wrote this sometime ago to help out somebody who was having difficulty in her review. It was posted in prep4usmle.

        Concept of Mastery, Know and Familiar in USMLE content.

        By askdoc / May 12, 2008

        Note: I wrote and posted this sometime ago in prep4usmle.com. Since it is impossible to know everything there is to know about Medicine, one should prioritize what medical concepts should be retained. Another post talks about how this can be implemented. Thanks for reading my post and your kind comments. To continue. As we all […]

          I have decided to temporarily stop from writing anything about the USMLE

          By askdoc / April 28, 2008

          Hi everyone. Although it is with a heavy heart, I have decided to temporarily stop writing in my blog or anywhere for that matter at least for the next few weeks or maybe even permanently. A few days ago, I found out that someone from Egypt has been copy-pasting all the contents of my blog […]

            Is the USMLE getting tougher every year?

            By askdoc / April 18, 2008

              We previously tackled one common myth about the USMLE. (See “Is the version of the USMLE for IMGs harder than for AMGs?” ) Now we will tackle another one. In order to answer this question we need to understand how the USMLE come up with questions to include in the USMLE. The USMLE states […]

              Clinical Vignettes in the USMLE and how they affect your review process

              By askdoc / April 14, 2008

              Clinical Vignettes are increasingly becoming more common and important not just in Step 2 and Step 3 but even in Step 1. Increasingly, it is not enough to just memorize important medical facts, but to recognize how these facts apply in real life practice of medicine. The use of clinical vignettes also tests your ability […]

                Is Kaplan enough for Step 1 Review?

                By askdoc / April 4, 2008

                This is the question often asked by newbies in various USMLE forums. The usual answer is either a yes or no, but the honest answer is another question. Enough for what? For acing the exam?

                  How we recall information and its impact in reviewing for USMLE.

                  By askdoc / March 31, 2008

                  The USMLE is the type of exam that tests not only your knowledge and mastery of medicine but also your ability to recall those facts. What you cannot recall, usually in the space of a minute or less, you do not know as far as the USMLE is concerned. 🙁 There are actually 4 types […]
