I’m realizing I still have lots more practice drills to do: a few hundred cases (from First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 Cases) 950 questions (from First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 Q&A) and 2,000 questions (from USMLEWorld) for my licensing exam, so I’m going into major hiding mode until May 21st. In other words, I’ll be studying from 5am to 9pm each day (need at least 12 hours each day). And as a backup, I can push back my test date, but I don’t want to do that because I dearly want a vacation and go see the Bay Area again before the 30-hour work days or whatever in 3rd year of med school starts.
I’ve got a freezer full of food, anti-anxiety techniques, a big goal, and a packed schedule. Wish me luck!
