Maksym D, Step 1 Prep - Live Prep Student
Concepts and strategies of USMLE success are hard to understand initially. My friends still refuse to believe that a preparation for any exam can take months. Most of us don't realize the complexity of an exam when we first make a decision to conquer the boards, often being naive to the point of setting very unrealistic goals. Under the guidance of an experienced advisor, Dr. Gilda Noori, and lectures of Kaplan star faculty, Kaplan Live courses provided a comprehensive review of heavily tested exam concepts. What is even more important - they created an educational "atmosphere", that provided mental strength and confidence needed to succeed on Steps. A productive balance of high-yield information, clicker quiz/Q-Bank challenges, humor and after-class social interactions helped to prevent burn-out and stay focused.
