        Guide to Self-Evaluation in USMLE Prep

        By askdoc / September 29, 2008

        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. However, it got a little bit too long, so I have decided to rewrite it into an article. […]

            Preparing for the USMLE Step 2 CS – Part I

            By askdoc / August 28, 2008

            For the past few months, I’ve written articles that deal with all the different Steps except for Step 2 CS. So this will cover preparations for Step 2 CS. Like most IMGs, I felt really anxious preparing for the Step 2 Clinical Skills. This was primarily due to the novelty of the examination method. (simulated […]

              Askdoc’s USMLE Step 1 Prep Course open for Applicants

              By askdoc / August 1, 2008

              Back in 2004 when I was just starting my preparation for the USMLE, my greatest fear was in failing this examination. My status as an old graduate made failing a stark reality for me. Every person I asked told me that as an old graduate I have no chance. The most encouraging response I got […]

                  By askdoc / July 4, 2008

                  We now come to the second part of our discussion of “Using Q Banks effectively for USMLE Review”. For those just joining us, please review the previous post here. Previously we talked about what Q Banks to use and when to use them for review. We will now talk about how to use Q banks […]

                    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 […]
