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.

Bruno L, Step 1 Prep - Live, In Center

- Kaplan gave me structure and interesting Live Lectures. - It allowed me to meet with IMGs going through the same process of certification and the same challenges - I met highly competent and inspirational professors (Dr Cristian Stefan, Dr Turco, Dr Barone)

Ugochukwu O, Step 2 CK Prep - Live Online student

Kaplan Teachers provide the refresher materials I need to know. They created an interactive online class, they gave points which could only have come from veteran teachers. They gave success tips at each lecture. They answered questions. The med advisers designed your programs, you provided a feedbacks then they guided you based on the feedback. They gave you pitfalls to avoid and then depending on your strength and weakness they recommended an exam date.

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.

Fabian K, Step 2 CK Prep - On Demand user

The Kaplan on demand lectures provides great overview of everything you need to know for the real exam. It helped me building a basic knowledge of the tested topics from which you can start diving deeper into the tricky facts.

Dr. Gwanmesia, Step 1 Prep - On Demand user

What a game changer! Previously tried other revision courses without success. With Kaplan, a high score is certainly guaranteed, and you have at your fingertips what you need to ace the USMLEs.
