Hello sir! I am a medical student from BJMC, Pune. I am about to enter my second year. I just wanted to ask that from where did you get the Kaplan video lectures. Actually I contacted the Kaplan authorities, they said they had a package for 4 months of prep. But you said you completed all of the subjects usig it so I though maybe you got it from somewhere else. Also I wanted to know if Lecturio is worth subscribing for? Thanks a lot for your guidance…..it means a lot for newbies like me!
4 months for the video lectures of Kaplan is good enough time to finish the course. However, there is a 7 month plan as well if you need. You can find it here https://www.kaptest.com/usmle/courses/step-1-at-home
Lecturio is a good alternative and is much cheaper.
Hi sir, I am getting scores like 50 or 65% in UWorld Obank, Lecturio Q bank even after doing pathoma, FA, goljan and etc,. what to do sir?
Hi, I’m currently in year 1 -6 months into it. I plan on giving my USMLE after/during my internship, but wish to integrate it with my studies from now. I’m very confused which sources to go for, Kaplan is good but pricey. Would you suggest I must go for Kaplan or are there alternatives?
Sir I am in 5th term of 2nd year. I decided to take up usmle. Is too late for me? What steps should I take now to ace the exam and good rank. I look forward to your reply.
