USMLE Step 1 Prep ... Studying for the Boards

The following is based on "The Penn Method” for studying for Step 1. We happen to have the highest average Step 1 scores in the nation, so we're doing something right. That said, studying is really all about figuring out what works for you.

People generally study for anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks. Make a schedule of what you want to accomplish each day and leave time for fun, friends, exercise ... you know life.
