by Mary K. Miller

Review from a "real" Medical Student just like you: "This book is a life saver for ANY student taking standardized exams. I think it is a simple way to study for step 1, step 2; for interns taking step 3 with little time to study and even for premedical students taking MCAT. I actually recommend reading this book prior to medical school. I wish I had read this book before medical school. The method in this book is simple yet highly effective. It helps you focus on what you don't know. Since what you don't know is different from anyone else, you get to work only on weakness specific to you. I have tried the methods suggested in this book on my Step 1 and 2 exams. IT REALY WORKS! When I used the methods suggested on my step 1, step 2 did not feel like `such monster.' It was more like `ok! I have to just find a block of time and study.' YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK if you are worried about boards as much as I was."
Please select the ONE BEST answer: 1. You are a medical student preparing to take the USMLE Step 1 exam. Which of the following best expresses your innermost thoughts? (A) I hate multiple-choice exams. (B) I wish there were a better way to prepare for the test. (C) I know the material, but I don't do well on standardized exams. (D) I worry about the consequences of not passing. (E) All of the above. Answer: E The multiple-choice question above strikes fear into the heart of every medical student. They must all pass USMLE "board" and NBME "shelf" exams. As a clinical professor who teaches medical students and residents, author Mary K. Miller has seen some of her best and brightest students stumble when taking multiple-choice tests. To help them, she has developed the Aim Your Brain Study System. Her techniques include: Laying the foundation for how to study for USMLE Step 1; Using the AIM YOUR BRAIN Study System to overcome the "I hate multiple-choice exams" mindset; and helping students overcome test anxiety and other difficult issues.
