Free Study Aids for the USMLE Step 1 Medical Board Exam

Stomp On Step 1 is a free video series and blog that prepares medical students for the U.S.M.L.E. Step 1 Medical Board Exam. This site is full of all of the things I wish somebody had told me before I took the exam. I know what you are thinking “Not another study resource! I already have way too many books and videos to possibly get through.” But this video series is as a time saver, not a time commitment. I’ll help you focus in on the most important topics while ignoring the lowest yield material to save you unnecessary anxiety and frustration.

Since it is impossible to relearn 2 full years’ worth of medical school curriculum in the weeks leading up to the exam the logical thing to do is focus on studying efficiency. What sets Stomp On Step 1 apart from other study aids is the High Yield Rating. The HYR is a rating scale from 0 to 10 that gives you an  estimate for how likely each topic is to appear on the USMLE Step 1 exam. Focusing more attention on the material that is most important for the medical board exam allows you to increase your score and decrease test anxiety.
