How it works

How it works

Once you have selected a start date, we will provide you access to your online account. You will begin the course by taking a USMLE Step 1 Diagnostic Test, which will determine your strengths and weaknesses and allow you to target the rest of your study. You will then work through your video lecture content, making sure to assess your progress with subject-based assessment tests throughout, which can also be supplemented with Qbank questions (if you have a Qbank package).

Once you have completed the review material, it will be time to take our full-length simulated exam. You can use this exclusive tool to measure your performance and assess your readiness for the real exam. You can also use the simulated exam to help you figure out your exam strategy for test day, as your endurance throughout the day will have a big impact on your score! 

We recommend that you plan to dedicate at least 4 months to preparing for the Step 1 exam. As a rough guide, we find that the longer it has been since you graduated from medical school, the length of time that you may need to prepare increases; taking longer to get back into the "text book" way of thinking. So you may want to take that into account when selecting which course option you select.
