After a very short vacation (aren’t all vacations “too short”?), my USMLE Step 1 prep has begun -_-
I’ve opted to take the 7 week live lecture course from Kaplan here in the US. So that means I’m living in hotel for the next couple of months.
Class started a few days ago and it’s already been hell. I barely survived 4 hours of lecture a day in the first 2 years of medical school and now it’s 8 to 9 hours a day in Kaplan. Although it is common for some students to just study on their own, I chose Kaplan Live, because I needed structure to my study plan. I’m simply not motivated or self-directed enough to come up with my own study plan and just start reading random books.
At least I’m not doing it completely alone. There are 5 of us in total from SGU in the class, so there’s some camaraderie in the room.
