Boards Ready’s unique and successful approach to the USMLE is the only one of its kind available to medical students. Students will not sit and listen to hours of monotonous daily lectures and powerpoints that cover all material taught from the beginning of basic sciences allowing no time for questions, study or rest. Boards Ready is ONLY focused on key USMLE material. Because most students are visual learners, the course is heavily designed to provide visual, hands on learning with discussion and questions. Thus simplifying the material for the Boards so that it becomes realistic to understand, learn and retain. Valuable time is not spent on unnecessary material that is not standard on the Boards.
You will learn: biotstats in a way that you can actually understand and use it, graphs, charts, CT's and MRI's, X-Rays, EKG's.
You WILL become proficient in Pharmacology. We DO NOT teach you a bunch of mnemonics! If you think mnemonics is going to help you with Pharm, THINK AGAIN!! Pharm is intertwined in one way or another in 50% of your Step 1 exam. If you do NOT know pharm as well as your name, you will NOT pass Step 1. It is so critical, that we spend 1 full day every week on it!
Step 1 is NOT just testing your knowledge! Many very intelligent people FAIL Step 1. Step 1 is designed to determine IF YOU SHOULD BECOME A DOCTOR! It is designed TO FAIL YOU! It is testing FAR more than just knowledge! It is testing endurance, attention to detail, common sense, reasoning ability, ability to pick yourself up and keep going! It will find your weakness. At Boards Ready, we will find YOUR weakness and we will work to get rid of it so Step 1 does not have to!
Boards Ready supplies all note taking materials to its students.
