Find people who share your goal. During studying time there will be countless times you will want to rant to friends about being destroyed by a block of questions, or a poorly explained answer, or just how much information is falling out of your head.
Medical student resources
Your friends are absolutely crucial to this time. They help motivate you.
You help motivate them. Your group of study friends does not have to be the same group as your best friends; branch out and learn about people you thought you knew before. What is the test?
Read the introduction to First Aid. Each hour has a block of 44 questions. This means you have to answer at about a rate of just over a minute per question which leaves several minutes to review some flagged questions. Never leave a question blank. If you have difficulty with an answer, pick an answer, flag it, and come back to it at the end of your block with your free time. How do you study for the test?
Here is the third step. After many, many hours spent online reading different strategies and study plans, and implementing this myself, I can confidently say that these resources are components of the best study plan to achieving the best score possible, regardless of what type of learner you believe yourself to be visual, flashcarder, lecture slides, etc. First Aid and Qbanks are by far the most important. For example, you will look up a drug in First Aid and see a side effect you had never known to be associated with it.
For all your First Aid and USMLE-Rx Updates
First Aid is an accumulation of the highest yield facts believed to be tested by the USMLE because it is written by people students who have seen recent questions. The learning and understanding of each individual topic in first aid must be done outside of First Aid. Reading Wikipedia, your lecture slides, a textbook, getting an answer from a question bank.
This is where the true learning is done. The type of learning that helps you retain information long after you read it. After you learn it from these sources, you look it up in First Aid and you read it there again. Understand that First Aid is a big book. It would take me 10 minutes or more to make my way through an entire page of details and this was during study period when I already felt comfortable with most of the material , imagine the time it takes to go through the entire book.
You will not make it through the entire book and memorize most of it if you open the book for the first time 1 month, or even 2 months, before your exam. You need repetition. And because the book is so thick, that repetition needs to start now. It cannot wait until later. Each page in first aid is filled with details within details.
You cannot begin to imagine the details hidden on each page that can become test questions. On my 3rd pass of FA during my study period I was still finding new words I missed before and had never seen. Read the captions to the images. Read the labels of diagrams. Every single word is important. This must be your approach to studying.
There are no more high yield or low yield facts.
Every single fact is high yield. You can dive right into it. The same is true of the pathology and pharmacology sections. Those sections pull topics from many different organ systems and they contain many, many factoids that could be easily translated into flashcards. Lastly, download the newest edition of First Aid.
I studied with a friend who had the older edition and he regretted it. I say this because Uworld offers the most difficult and thought provoking questions. It is by no means an assessment tool. Do not use it as a big practice test. Instead, it is a learning tool.
It will teach you to become accustomed to the level of difficulty of the real exam. It will teach you that you have not been reading FA as closely as you think. It will teach you that memorizing 4 out of the 5 side effects of a drug is not enough. It gets you in the proper state of mind before taking the test because the test will be difficult. Can you use Uworld as your 1st Qbank? You can, but I recommend not doing that for the reasons above. Step 1 is like the real race and Uworld Qbank is like an intense exercise program.
You want your most strenuous regimen to be close to your performance. Can you re-do Uworld prior to your exam?
You absolutely can, but I argue there is very limited utility. That feeling of truly new questions is exactly what you will feel on the exam. If you want to do even better than well, you will likely need another qbank to practice with during the year. My opinion is that Rx has shorter question stems and feels easier than Kaplan.
Either is fine to use. Pick one qbank and finish it before study period starts. The reason I say so is that my strongest belief about this exam is that your score is highly correlated to the number of practice questions you do.
Frequently bought together
Yes FA is a big book of facts that you must memorize but when it comes to answering questions, the questions require processing information.
It requires integrating different data and organ systems and coming up with a conclusion where you have to weigh certain answer choices. Many times it comes down to a gut feeling.
But remember, you have to move at a pace of slightly over 1 minute per question.

Mar 27th, Script Skills: I've wasted a lot of time trying to find what I need. I've also email McGraw Hill customer service about this issue twice without a reply.
If you are someone who likes to cross-reference subjects while you study, or are using FA in conjunction with a question bank, you'll have trouble finding the subjects in your book if using the index.
Customer service emailed me back. After I let them know about a few of the index errors I had corrected in my book. They sent me a digital copy of the revised index which is all I asked for and needed.
