      USMLE Step 1 or Step 2 CK – Which Exam should I take first?

      By askdoc / May 2, 2011

      People preparing for the USMLE have been asking this question since as far as I can remember. Way back in 2004, when sitting for the USMLE was just a thought for me, there were very sound arguments for taking either one of this exam first. If you are an AMG you may be wondering what […]

          How to Create a Study Plan for the USMLE

          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 is probably the question foremost in the mind of anyone who ever thought of tackling the USMLE. I remember when I was starting out, how this pre-occupied me a lot. […]

                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 […]

                    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.
