            By askdoc / May 9, 2011

            When I first started my prep for the USMLE, it seems everyone else was using First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 and swearing it’s the best book ever written for the USMLE. Of course, now that I have finished my own examination and have time to reflect not only on my experience but on […]

              By askdoc / May 2, 2011

                    By askdoc / April 5, 2011
