Surviving Step 1: Time to Buy the New Edition of First Aid for the USMLE Step 1

2013 Step 1By Walter Wiggins

To 1st years, now is a great time to pick up a copy of the 2013 edition of First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 if you haven’t already (it’s on sale right now at Amazon.com!). The best piece of advice I have for you is to really learn the material the first time around. First Aid is the ultimate guide to high-yield concepts covered in each subject area of Step 1. With it, you can easily identify those concepts during the first 2 years that merit special attention, so that you’re truly reviewing the material when it comes time for your dedicated study period…and not relearning it.

To 2nd years, when it comes time for your dedicated study period, First Aid can help you identify high-yield concepts for each subject on which to focus your efforts. Already have a copy? Make sure it’s the 2013 edition. The last thing you want is to put a ton of effort into studying out-of-date material.

 

Here are some resources that you may need to help you prepare for the Step 1 exam:
