Step 1 Advice

Introducing the New Rx Study Planner!

Preparing for the USMLE Step 1 is one of the greatest challenges faced by a med student.  Whether you’re an M2 heading toward your test date with destiny or an IMG/FMG who is  chasing the dream of taking the Step 1 so that you can practice in the United States, the journey often seems perilous.  However, with the right mindset and the right approach, you can achieve your objective.  But…you need to have a plan.

That’s why we’ve introduced our new Rx Study Planner.  This is a free tool designed by members of the USMLE-Rx team and led by Express Videos author, Dr. Arjun Iyer.

Download the free Rx Study Planner here.

Since almost every medical student and IMG relies heavily on First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 as their primary review reference, we’ve structured the planner so that it correlates to each of the main subjects within First Aid.  However, it’s designed to be personalized so that it meets your needs and fits your study life.

To give you a sense of how it’s set up and how to get started, Arjun provides an introduction to the Rx Study Planner here:

Part of getting organized for the USMLE Step 1 involves understanding your own strengths and weaknesses.  For example, if you go to the cumulative analysis section of Step 1 Qmax, you may see that you’re really struggling with renal, while you’re knocking it out of the park on endocrine questions.  Using these insights, you can weight these subjects accordingly in the Rx Study Planner, ensuring that you’re spending more time reviewing the areas that need more attention.

In the end, the Rx Study Planner is designed to help med students:

  • Remove the guesswork out of planning
  • Automatically calculate the hours you should spend on each subject
  • Structure your calendar based on your study needs
  • Get color-coded feedback regarding whether you should be studying more or less
  • Assess your plan’s achievability and sustainability
  • Know if you’re on target to meet your study goals before the Step 1 exam

  1. Thanks, Arjun! You’ve made studying for Step 1 so enjoyable. I’ve struggled with time. This is the solution I’ve been waiting for.

  2. Hello, I have tried downloading this planner but it is not coming to my email at all. I have also looked in my spam folder. Is there another way I can access it?
