However, the main reason I am starting this blog is to help people. With all the information I have in my head on how to prepare and ace this exam, should I just let it lie there in my neurons, slowly decaying as I grow older and not help anyone else.
When I was starting my journey through this forbidding quagmire called USMLE, I long for information that will help me do well in the examination. But separating what is true, what is misconception, and what is downright deception was not easy. 😥 I remember thinking that I would be happy with an 85. But as I began my voyage of discovery, I began to think that 90+ is achievable. By the time I took the examinations, I knew I had a 99. What I know, what I’ve discovered while walking this path, I now chose to impart to others.
I wrote some advice almost 2 years ago to someone (hi gigiMD) asking what to do in Step 1 in a forum called prep4usmle.com. You can access it here. Over 22,000 hits later, scores of people have told me that they’ve gotten higher scores, some even 99’s using information in my posts. Helping one person winds up helping countless others. There is no greater satisfaction than helping people achieve their dreams and aspiration. 😀
I hope that by blogging I can continue to help people who needs my help. Feel free to ask questions. Although I may not be able to answer right away, it will be answered whether in the same thread or if applicable to other people in a new post. Currently I have over 30 titles which I am writing and will post them as fast as I can finish them. Remember you have to register and be logged in to post comments and ask questions.
