Another thing to note- some people get by with 6 hrs/day for 2 wks. They may be smarter than you, or they may be lying to you. Either way, I decided to leave nothing to chance as I knew this exam was my only way into ortho. I was going to give it my all without question.


I studied from 9am-10pm, 6 days a week for 6 weeks and got a 270.... Put in the time and it will pay off.

Replied by on topic Taus method worked for me,

Taus method worked for me, modified it to my strengths and weaknesses.


This might be a dumb question, but does the Taus method need an altering, as it's now a few years old? I guess I'm just wondering if the actual Step 1 exam changes much in a few years time. I was just reading through the Word document from SDN, and Taus specifies certain review book editions and specific passages for certain topics... does anyone know if this can be followed exactly and still be effective? Did any of you make major modifications to it?

Thanks... just taking Step 1 in a year and already getting nervous!
