Is 7 weeks enough for Step 1?

7 weeks is plenty and you can definitely shoot for above a 220. I took 8 weeks exactly for dedicated. My first NBME (just before dedicated) ended in a 190. I got my score 2 days ago and finished with a 246.

What should I do a few days before Step 1?

— Now for the day before the Step 1 Exam: —

  • Take the day off from studying! •
  • Wake up early.

  • Open space.
  • Don’t watch a movie that’s too intense or makes you reminisce too much afterwards.
  • Watch this video and get fired up for success.

The night before the test is an important one for making smart eating choices. Even if you’re nervous, try to eat a full meal with protein, carbs, and vegetables. A good idea is to go for fish, greens, and healthy carbohydrates such as rice or whole wheat pasta. Try fruit or dark chocolate for dessert.
