well, i guess you should start with step 1 first, since you need to understand the basics before the clinical. my suggestion is do take a review course to help you out with what your school missed out.

Thanks,jana31!!
actually i learned the basic sciences two years ago.
but now i think,i can't remember anything.

the medical liscense exam is also focused in the clinical science.

i learnd all,but i forgor everything.
actually i didn't get good grades on those.


but some IMGs sites told that it's better to take step 1 first.
so im very confused.

anybody? any other opinions?

i expect your kindly opinions.

thanks again.

jana31 is right. Take step 1 first. After first round reading, follow 6 weeks or 4 weeks plan.
