About Stomp On Step1
Stomp On Step 1 is a free video series and blog that prepares medical students for the USMLE 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 series of videos should be seen 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.
Other study aids have a mountain of material without giving you a way to differentiate the most important material from the least important information. This leads to medical students trying (and failing) to memorize everything. Given that it is impossible to perfectly relearn 2 years’ worth of medical school curriculum in just a few weeks the logical next step is to consider studying efficiency. Focusing more attention on the material that is most important for the USMLE Step 1 Exam and less time on the material that is unlikely to appear on the exam allows you to be more efficient with your limited study time. 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 a rough estimate for how likely each topic is to appear on the USMLE Step 1 exam. Click here to learn more the High Yield Rating.
