USMLE चरण 1 Study Tips

Because your time is so limited, we want to give you a short, direct informative guide to help you succeed and achieve the USMLE Step 1 score you have aimed for. Don’t panic, we have laid out all you need to know below.

USMLE wants you to see medicine differently, make it practical.

Firstly, you should know that USMLE will not test your memory, but your ability to apply basic sciences knowledge in a clinical scenario (vignettes). That means that questions will not sound like:

“What drug class does scopolamine belong to?", but rather:

“Scopolamine is prescribed as a transdermal patch for a patient leaving for a cruise vacation. Which comorbidity would be a contraindication?"

That means that USMLE questions are not direct (first-order) ones, but rather second or third order questions, in this case: A drug commonly prescribed for motion sickness (cruise trip), but is contraindicated in closed-angle glaucoma.

Or let us put it another way:

“Which receptor will cause the side effects of this medication on patients with glaucoma?"

You will get the hold of this as you go, without a doubt.

Your score should be aimed according to your specialty.

Like in any country, some specialties are particularly more competitive in the United States. Numbers do change from year to year, but there seems to a be pattern to Radiology, Dermatology and Plastic Surgery always requiring higher scores, starting from 240. Other specialties such as Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Physical Medicine require scores starting from 220, roughly. The average score in the United States is of 220. So if you haven’t decided which specialty to go, we recommend you to aim for 240. If you have, दूसरी ओर, get the latest information on the average matching score.

Anxiety is a part of the deal, but let’s put things into perspective.

Secondly, feeling overwhelmed is a commonly exacerbated symptom amongst students taking the USMLE, therefore, here is a formula we can’t recommend enough:

2 months of Video Lectures from a Prep Course of your choice with Review books +

Question bank of your choice (do it 2-3 times) +

Parallel to the first two: Read First Aid Step 1 at least three times, taking notes.

The last month before the exam you will be working a lot, mostly with your notes and with First Aid, basically, this formula prepares you for that period.

Pacing your study and following CRUSH’s simple rules is a time-saver.

Thirdly, let’s us lay out five golden rules when it comes to your study schedule:

  • Start from the subject you are less comfortable with (Biochemistry, for example);
  • Study 50 मिनट, rest 10. Or if you prefer, 1 hour 40 मिनट, and rest 20 मिनट. Those cycles should be repeat four times. You can have two blocks or four cycles each like that a day.
  • Resting is crucial. Take one day off from studying weekly: forget about the exam, do other things you also enjoy, even if while doing them you can’t help but diagnose everyone around you now.
  • Before exam, do at least 4 full-length exams with timing before your USMLE exam date. This will help you fight away that anxiety like a ninja, you are very prone to succeed if you are acquainted with the real exam conditions.
  • When doing a question bank, take notes on every question, write down the concepts, make diagrams.

The Prep Course should fit your needs.

Additionally, an imperative part of your success is knowing which USMLE Step 1 prep course works for you. CRUSH team has tested and set them out for you, not to mention the discounts you can get through our website.

  • First scenario: If you are still a medical student, you might be running out of time between classes and finals, so you need both mobile access, as well as extended subscription time, in that case we recommend Smash USMLE: you can get it for a whole year, watch 250 hours of video lectures and download a free smartphone app. Another great learning venue would be Becker, since it offers a very similar deal!
  • Second scenario: If you are an international medical graduate, for example, and are no longer in medical school, you might have more time to concentrate on your exam alone and more intensively, so Kaplan USMLE might be the choice for you, with a 3-month subscription.
  • Third scenario: if money is tight, लेकिन आप अभी भी अपने परीक्षा की तैयारी से बाहर सबसे अच्छा बनाना चाहते, हम अनुशंसा करते हैं बोर्ड नब्ज और GraduateX. अतिरिक्त, हम उन पर छूट प्रदान करते, भी!

अंत में, आप पांच तैयारी पाठ्यक्रम के सभी डेमो संस्करण का परीक्षण कर सकते हम उल्लेख किया है और परीक्षण अपने आप को ड्राइव.

पुस्तकें, पुस्तकें, पुस्तकें…

छात्रों का एक बड़ा राशि ऑनलाइन जाने के लिए और के बारे में समस्त तैयारी किताबें पढ़ने और आश्वस्त वे उन सभी को जरूरत हो जाएगा. याद है, आप नहीं पढ़ सकते हैं आंतरिक चिकित्सा के हैरिसन के सिद्धांतों अपने परीक्षा से पहले या ग्रे की शारीरिक रचना. यही कारण है कि जमीन सीखने है, पाते हैं कि पिछले है, अब हम की समीक्षा करने पर ध्यान केंद्रित कर रहे हैं (भले ही आप किसी अन्य भाषा में विदेश में अध्ययन किया है!). तो इससे पहले कि सोच किताबें, make sure they are review books with high-yield information — principles you are very likely to see in your exam.

Like all great works, USMLE is full of classic questions, and people who write review books know that. They have done the work for you. There will most certainly be a question about a farmer with organophosphates poisoning, the flushing side effects of atropine-like drugs, or say, if it’s a genetic condition, USMLE चरण 1 will always present it with the classic patient and his/her origin, for example, sickle cell anemia is commonly seen in children. USMLE won’t test you for the exceptions, but rather with the most common drugs, दुष्प्रभाव, presentations, causes. As said, it is a classic.

We, at CRUSH, it seems, have reached a consensus that there are roughly three strategies to decide which are the best USMLE Step 1 आप के लिए पुस्तकों की समीक्षा:

  • एक पूरी श्रृंखला खरीदें. ऐसा करके, आप सुनिश्चित करें कि सभी सामग्री कवर किया जाता है हो सकता है और वह खुद को दोहराना नहीं होगा कि. भी, दोहरा डिजाइन, लेखन शैली भी एक बड़ा प्लस है.
  • विभिन्न श्रृंखला से एक विषय के लिए सबसे अच्छा पुस्तक खरीदें. आप थोड़ा और समय अनुसंधान कर आवश्यकता हो सकती है, लेकिन अगर आप अलग श्रृंखला से अलग पुस्तकों के साथ सहज महसूस, तो यह जाने के लिए एक अच्छा तरीका है.
  • आप बाहर है कि मिल सकती है कापलान की किताबें महान हैं, लेकिन आप केवल तैयार नहीं श्रृंखला में उनके respectives के लिए बदलने के लिए Pathoma और सूक्ष्म जीव विज्ञान मेड हास्यास्पद आसान कर रहे हैं.

हम आपको एक विषय पर दो या अधिक किताबें खरीदने की सलाह नहीं देते. आप हमें विश्वास करना चाहिए जब हम यह कहते: सभी सामग्री आप की आवश्यकता होगी, इस तरह या किसी और तरह, या तो कवर किया जाना अपने पुस्तकों की समीक्षा में, question bank or First Aid.

No matter which one of the above you go for, remember: buying the latest edition of First Aid Step 1 will ensure your being on top of the newest mnemonics and high-yield facts.

First Aid Step 1 is not an addition to your review books, it is simply a must-have. You might want to bind it to make it easier to read, भी.

Making mistakes in the question bank is also learning.

You don’t have to feel demotivated if you miss a lot of questions while doing your question bank. The question bank is a learning tool, so are the mistakes you will make. You have to relate to the question bank as an online book: it’s a perfect place to make use of trial-error, and do not feel as if you’re not improving if you do miss questions. तो सवाल के पहले दौर के बाद अपनी प्रगति को एक्सेस करने के लिए बहुत demotivating होगा! यह पूरी तरह से दो तीन बार के लिए एक प्रश्न बैंक ऐसा करने के लिए सिफारिश की है.

अपने मस्तिष्क और जिस तरह से समझते हैं कि यह बेहतर सीखता, आपके पक्ष में इस का उपयोग.

The 1-3 नियम. आप होना करने के लिए एक डॉक्टर कर रहे हैं, इसलिए आपके पक्ष में है कि ज्ञान का उपयोग: आपका मस्तिष्क एक सीखने शेड्यूल नहीं है, तो यह आस-पास काम. ध्यान में रखना है कि वयस्क मस्तिष्क के चारों ओर एक सामग्री reencounter करने की जरूरत है 48 घंटे के लिए पहली बार के बाद आप इसे से परिचित कराया. तो आप यह कैसे लागू कर सकते हैं? एक परीक्षण ब्लॉक का समाधान, for example, कहना, का 40 प्रति ब्लॉक सवाल. आप आज इसे हल तो, गलतियाँ करना, परीक्षण बैंक में प्रश्न के लिए स्पष्टीकरण पढ़ सकते हैं और आगे बढ़ने. दो दिन बाद इस परीक्षा से नोट बनाने. कहानी संक्षिप्त में: आप दिन के बारे में जानकारी के लिए परिचय करने की आवश्यकता है 1, and reencounter it on day 3. Before your test, you can freely review these notes.

Note taking: go old school. There is no best way to take notes, if you’ve been to medical school, you have by this time found out the method that best works for you. A lot of people prefer to type, instead of writing, but if you are a medical student you do know that by writing you do remember more by using different parts of your cortex, rather than just typing. It also goes without saying that you would spend a lot of more time inserting symbols (arrows, for instance) into your notes than if you simply wrote them down in form of a scheme in a notebook.

USMLE चरण 1 Note Taking

The Feynman method. A lot of students struggle without a study partner, in our opinion, even though this is a great we-are-on-the-same-boat strategy, we have another solution for those who prefer to work on their own time, or simply on their own. Another great strategy to optimize your learning is by becoming a proud adept of the Feynman Study Technique. It is based on using different parts of your brain to quickly retain information and works in simple four steps: पहले, pick a topic, read about it; second, pretend to teach yourself out loud (this is very important!); third, if you get stuck during the explanation: revisit the book; and fourth, repeat the process using analogies, simple language and connecting facts. इतना, keep in mind, a study partner is great, but here’s a simple (and effective) solution.

USMLE चरण 1 Mock Exams

The mock exam is your best score predictor.

We all need a little motivation, so the best way to assess your USMLE Mock ExamsUSMLE चरण 1 score is by taking mock exams. They look just like the test itself. Turn off your phone, and get ready for an eight-hour task. After that, do something relaxing: go binge watch your favorite show, go out dancing, have a cup of coffee with your friends, shift your mind from the test prep and the next day you will be fresh as new!

USMLE चरण 1 PlanningUSMLE Planning

Plan, plan, plan, when nothing else: plan.

If you’re very insecure about whether you are ready or not to schedule your test, get an organizer and write the amount of work you need to get done everyday, item by item, and see how much time you actually need. You can do a check-list if you like the concept better. If you feel like that is not enough, here is a little insider’s trick that seems to work: कहना, by the time you have completed 10, 20, X number of items from your USMLE Step 1 prep to-do list or check list, you give yourself a little reward. Remember that nice bag you had seen the other day? Or, कहना, a boat ride, bike rent, a pair of nice shoes (dress for your future job, right?), or even a tattoo. Have yourself a merry little holiday! You can actually put these rewards into the list and as you complete your milestones, go out there and get what’s yours.

Take-home message: life-long learning is part of being a doctor.

Lastly, remember: your USMLE Step 1 preparation isn’t supposed to be a burden! Take one thing at a time and you will find out that by the end of this experience you have made nothing but a better doctor out of yourself. When you started medical school, for example, by the time you’ve finished it, you will see guidelines changing, new drugs appearing, others becoming obsolete, and you need to adapt to those innovations all the time, life-long. Keep being curious, keen and hard-working — the more positively you relate to your studying experience, the more positive the outcome will be.
