Mistakes to Avoid While Studying for the USMLE

Read the guide on how tips to avoid mistakes when studying for the USMLE step 1 examinations.

The USMLE is a rite of passage for every medical school student. Here are some tips from Brian Radvansky, a USMLE Tutor, on mistakes to avoid while studying for USMLE Step 1 & 2 CK:

  • On test day, you will need to be focused and present for about 8 straight hours.  Start building that stamina now. Avoid giving yourself those “mini-rewards” for just completing a question block. Keep going.
  • Avoid doing too great a proportion of your practice blocks in Timed Tutor mode and getting overly used to expecting a green check or red X after every question. That obviously won’t happen on the exam.
  • Try as much as possible to physically emulate the actual test conditions, i.e., working at a desk vs. lounging with your iPad on the couch.
