    I have currently started preparations.

    anatomy is my WORST subject.. so i am starting it first

    Anatomy Kaplan + HY embryo + cell biology form grays + HY neeuro > adding margin notes to Kaplan

    Patho is the second subject i have started

    Read Robbins (basic ) chapter first -> go through goljan notes on that chapter -> hear goljans audio for that section -> note all the information foown on the kaplan pathology notes book.


    i am just in my first month of preparation will let you known when i reach other subjects.

    just make sure you do all the q bank questions
    the more questions oyu do the better
    if the qbank has 2100, do them all 2 or 3 times, so your total questions done is something like 6000
    then you will be ready
