          What to Study for the USMLE – Part I

          By askdoc / June 25, 2008

          This is a really big topic and would probably take at least a dozen posts maybe even two to finish. However, we have to begin somewhere. This is actually the most common question asked in forums. When people ask whether First Aid is enough, should I do Q Banks, do I need Goljan, etc. the […]

            Using Q Banks effectively for USMLE Review

            By askdoc / June 12, 2008

            Doing Q banks is now considered part and parcel of USMLE review. Any person still not using Q banks is taking a big chance of doing poorly in the examination. In fact I believe one of the biggest reason for the increasingly high scores among both AMGs and IMGs is due to the existence of […]

              USMLE QBank vs. Kaplan QBank: Which one?

              By askdoc / June 4, 2008

              Which one is better, UW or Kaplan? This is one of the most often asked questions I’ve encountered from people and the answer is as always not that straightforward. Each has its pros and cons and thereby is more useful in one situation than another. The best answer is

                High Yield Concepts and the USMLE.

                By askdoc / May 29, 2008

                “Study the High yield stuff”. “Don’t bother with that because it’s low yield”. When I was just starting my review, these are the most common advice I get from “experts” in forums and books about reviewing for the USMLE. The question is how good is this advice.
