            Three Phases of USMLE Prep

            Biggest Mistake in USMLE Prep One of the biggest mistakes people make in prepping for the USMLE is underestimating the time it takes to finish the prep. It seems a lot of people start their USMLE prep by opening a book and then start reading. They have no estimate on how fast they have to […]

                NBME Self Assessment Tests and USMLE Review

                By askdoc / June 19, 2009

                The NBME self assessment test is another of those tools that I feel is responsible for the increasingly high scores in the USMLE. It is a great tool that allows the test-taker to assess his or her readiness for the exam. To a certain extent, if used properly, it is also a useful tool for […]

                    By askdoc / October 26, 2008

                    Note: This was initially published in 6 parts and was then consolidated into a downloadable ebook. Why create a study plan for the USMLE?

                      This started out as a reply to a question asked by dr patel on my blog on how to evaluate one’s readiness for the USMLE and avoid making the mistake of taking the examination and failing it.
