[Broken External Image]:http://usmlereview.net/images/usmle step two.jpg Here are the TOP 10 tips that we received from hundreds of students who have taken the exams: 1) Make a study schedule that you can stick to! 2) Read the material before you test yourself with questions. 3) Learn all the possible "distractors" that could fool you on the exam. Register at www.distractoravoidance.com or get the iPhone app! It's worth it! 4) Get an online Q-bank like UWorld or Kaplan. 5) Get plenty of rest the day before the exam and study very little that day. 6) Exercise regularly to keep your body and mind in tune. 7) Get the Kaplan flashcards by Conrad Fischer. They're expensive, but might be helpful. 8) For Step 3, don't neglect the cases! That's a large part of the test! 9) Common things are common, the test is not trying to trick you (usually). 10) Don't second guess yourself! More than 90% of the time you switch your answers, you actually switch to the wrong one!
