我在这里潜水很久,借鉴了很多牛人的学习方法,所以今天决定
把自己的考经也写一遍。初次发帖请大家多多包涵!Sorry for
the delay, I have been busy on my rotations.

我知道班上很多牛人,大家学习也都很努力。我的成绩也不是很好,
不想在这里班门弄斧,只是向大家介绍下我的学习方法。

Although my score is not that high, considering that I
only studied for 5 weeks, I think my study method is
pretty efficient. Hopefully, it will be helpful for those
who does not have much time to study.

The only study material I used were: First Aid(FA) 2014,
UWorld(UW), Pathomaand NBME forms. I am a 3rd year medical
student in Texas and I only had 5 weeks to study, so using
too many resources was not a good idea for me. I would
rather concentrate on a few High Yield resources, finish
them, insteadof losing focus on too many different resources.

我把我的学习方法总结为三点:

Concept driven, question based, and group oriented
我用这个方法学习了五个星期左右,达到的效果为:
6/15/2014 Usmle step 1: 258
6/19/2014 Comlex level 1: 800

1. Concept driven

关于第一点,我看到班上大部分人的考经,都是一背书为基础。
大部分人都认为把FA背好是最重要的。我觉得FA是一本很好的书,
言简要概地发最重要的知识点都总结出了。但是我觉得死记硬背
并不能达到最好的效果。

我觉得最重要的事要把concept搞清楚. 我只把FA马马虎虎的过
了两遍。里面有很多东西我都背不下来,但是我觉得很多细节都
不是很重要,关键是要把大的概念搞清楚,做到举一反三,活学
活用,这样才能考出好的成绩。

USMLE 考的内容非常广泛,所以每个考点都不可能考得太深,要
不然的话谁都做不出来。所以复习的时候一定要把大部分的考点
都复习到, 但是每个考点都不要抠得太深,不要太在意细节,因
为考题都不会去考那些非常细的东西。Someone once told me that
USMLE is supposed to be a easy test, I did not believe
them, but now, I do. Because of the broad coverage of
material, the question has to be very simple and straight
forward, at least to the people who made those questions.
When you see a question, think about why the author made
this question, what important concept are they trying to
test. If you can figure that out, it becomes very easy.

我有不少同学把整本FA都背下来了但是考试成绩并不是理想。因为
他们并没有理解里面很多东西。That is the beauty of USMLE,
it is a test that not only test your knowledge but more
importantly, test your reasoning ability. Some of the
questions on the NBME are pure logic questions; you don’t
have to have any medical background to answer some of
those questions.


2. Question Based

关于第二点,我觉得做题是非常重要。我觉得题目可以帮你找到你的
弱点,但是更重要的是,只有做题才能让你对考试出的体型更加熟悉。
我把UW 做了两遍。

First pass--72%
Second pass--92%

Several真题和里面的题目几乎一模一样,对我帮助很大。

但是我觉得真正最好的题库是NBME, 因为这些都是真题,虽然在考试
的时候不一定会碰到一模一样的题目,但是最重要的concept都是一样
的。我不但做了所有的NBME,还把每道题都吃透啦,很多concept都考
到了。Try not to remember the questions, but the concepts.
One thing that is very important, I learned from another
post, is to remember the pictures of NBME. They use the
same pictures a lot of times, just asking different
questions on it.

Here is my NBME score in Chronological orders:

nbme 11—530
nbme 12-- 620
nbme 7---590
nbme 13 -- 650
nbme 15 --610
nbme 16 --670

3. Group Oriented

关于第三点,我觉得有好的一个学习小组还是很好的。我从医学院
一年级的时候开始,就开始和同学一起分组讨论。我觉得自己一个
人在家里死读书的时候,很难集中精神而且很难把要背的东西记住。
但是跟同学讨论,把这些概念都用自己的嘴巴说出来解释给同学听,
只要讲一两遍自己就记得牢啦!

特别是在做完了题目以后,在小组里面进行讨论,是效率最高的。
几个人咭咭呱呱地一下子就可以把一套题目里面重要的概念都分析
一遍。但是我建议在寻找自己的搭档的时候,最好找一个和自己水
平差不多的,这样学习起来效率才最好。千万不要把自己的搭档当
成竞争对手,最好大家都不要有所保留,大家能成为好朋友一起学
习共同努力是最好的。


Lastly, I would like to talk about my experience on the
actual date of exam.I basically eat some light breakfast
and got there early around 0730. The testing center people
prefer that I get there early, otherwise, they said it
’s going to be a long line.

I basically started the test early and took a 5 mins break
in between each block and a 30 mins break for lunch.

I feel the actual test is much harder than the NBME questions.
Every block Ihave at least 10-15 questions marked, not
sure what is going on. I feel for my test, I had a lot of
Step 2 like questions, meaning there are a lot of true
clinical questions, rather than a lot of basic science
questions for some reason. Actually for my test, FA was
not that helpful. I heard that the NBME was trying to
change the test because people have been doing better
and better at it.

I did not feel like question stems were that long, as
some of the people were talking about it on this website.
I think the length of the questions were reasonable and
manageable. However, I did have some time crunch. Every
block I only had around 5-10 mins left, and I could only
re-check the questions that I marked. The reason is because
the questions are harder, not because they are longer than
NBME.

I heard that they have a lot of experimental questions
and the most important thing is not freak out. Take a
deep breath, keep calm and endure through it.

Good luck on all of ya’ll who are still studying hard!
You can do it!!!
