USMLE Step 1 Schedule

I was only planning on taking an hour to put this schedule together but I ended up spending 2.5 hours (well I was also cooking in between). Here’s what my schedule looks like at the moment. I still don’t know for sure if I’ll be able to choose June/18th as a potential date but that is what I’m shooting for!

*This schedule is based on reviewing FA!


Finally heard back from ECFMG!

So they finally received my applications (form 186)! They said I should be hearing back from them within 3 weeks! I just can’t wait to pick a date and get on with my ever-changing schedule!

Still working on HY Neuroanatomy while sipping my amazing turkish coffee! Smells so amazing…Thinking of taking an hour to modify my schedule as I now have to have a definite date for when they email me back! So nervous but very happy to hear from them. Better get to work.

Till next time,


High Yield Neuroanatomy

So today my day started out very “infertile” but things a little more excited towards the afternoon. The FedEx man finally delivered my High Yield Neuroanatomy book! I was so excited when Lippincott Williams & Wilkins asked me to review their 4th edition. It truly is an honor. I am a huge fan of the HY series and of their many little books, HY neuroanatomy happens to be my favorite! I mean James D. Fix did an amazing job simplifying such a complicated subject.

I have already read their 2e about 2.5X already but they insisted that I read their 4e and offered to mail it to me. I can’t wait to get started, although according to my schedule I should be doing Path today (which by the way has been super super slow!). I think I’ll need about 3 days to finish reading the book and while I’m at it, I might as well go ahead and review FA’s section for neuro.
