Advice
The best advice I have is to focus on classes during the
school year and just do like an hour to hour and a half of step one
stuff per day. You'll hear a lot of people say they are stopping going
to class or really studying for class but I think that's the wrong
approach. No matter how much step one specific prep you do, there will
still be stuff on the test that you won't have covered in review. I
think the best chance you have of getting those questions right is by
learning the actual class material well. There were a couple of
questions I remember that I think I got right because we had discussed
them in class despite not showing up in any review book.
The resources I used to study were first aid, Kaplan qbank (I did this
during second semester), uworld (I saved it for my dedicated study
time), and the Kaplan high yield videos. I really think people are
better off focusing on a couple of study resources rather than trying
to look at a ton of them. I think I got through first aid about 7
times during my dedicated study time and felt that that was much more beneficial than trying to get through a lot of different resources only once.
