Why the Step 1 Deck?
From the time I began Yousmle.com, students have kept asking, “when can I buy YOUR Anki cards?”
But when I tried to make an Anki deck for the common medical student, I kept coming back to the same problem: how can I have a manageable enough deck that it doesn’t overwhelm students? What are the facts they
Finally, I’ve compiled some of the most high-yield Anki cards I’ve made, and added new explanations to concepts I wish I’d known before I’d begun my Step 1 preparations.

It entirely depends on your timeline. If you have > 2 months before your exam, I would recommend doing the entire deck prior to doing the USMLE World® question bank. If you have only a couple weeks, I’d recommend doing QBank questions first, then searching the deck for cards pertaining to the topics you missed, saving you the time of searching for explanations/integrations.

At the beginning of my study period, I went through a video review course for about 5 weeks, along with intermittent UWorld random timed sets that I’d annotate inefficiently into First Aid. After this, I took an NBME and got a 228. I knew at that point that I wasn’t reaching my goals and was clueless as to how to boost my score quickly, so I searched online looking for advice when I came across the site. Within 9 days, my next NBME score was a 249. I continued this process for another 5 weeks until all of Uworld was turned into pathophys-to-presentation cards.
