          By askdoc / May 15, 2012

          Normally if you are a fresh graduate or third year medical student, you can skip the learning phase and proceed directly to mastery phase. While it is imperative for old graduates to go through a formal learning phase. The exception is if you are aiming for a 99, then you need a formal learning phase. […]

            When I started my prep way back in 2005, I wanted to know how much I should know in order to get a 99. I started going through exam experiences of people who got 99’s, listing down all the study materials they used. A pattern started to emerge. They were all more or less studying […]

                  Can I get a 99 in the USMLE?

                  By askdoc / September 27, 2010
